Minestrone is normally a thick and substantial soup loaded with vegetables and some kind of pasta or rice. There is no original recipe or way to prepare it — many households make different and there's no wrong way. Similarly in Mexico, sopa de verduras is a very common dish in every household. It is made with all the vegetables you have around. That said, feel free to add any kind of vegetables you have in your fridge to prepare this soup.
At home, my kids and I love this recipe with this specific combination of veggies. It's healthy, savory and is the kind of dish that fills your mind and heart with good memories and warm feelings. This Mexican minestrone is the combination of flavors for two of my favorite cuisines, Italian and Mexican. Even though the method and vegetables used in both countries are different, the finished product is very similar. And I can imagine that the feeling that you get while eating this vegetable soup, of being close to home, surrounded by family and happiness it is exactly the same, too.
