Minnestrone Soup

This recipe comes from the best vegetarian. I love it because it has turnip in it and it gives the soup a really nice flavour. Turnips, like other vegetables, are poor in calories. It can be part of a diet menu. Moreover they have diuretic properties. This vegetable is high in vitamin C (11 mg for 100 g of turnip and 30 mg for 100 g of turnip greens). Vitamin C has a powerful antioxidant, meaning that this vitamin quenches free radicals and neutralizes destructive oxidation reactions. Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron. Turnip is therefore an interesting vegetable for vegetarian since they always strive to meet their need in this mineral. Turnips are also a good source of calcium, phosphor and magnesium. Turnip greens provide larger amounts of these vitamins and minerals and are especially rich in folic acid. This vitamin is essential for the normal growth and maintenance of all cells and vital for the reproduction of those cells within the fetus. I served this soup with a cheddar cheese loaf from Looney Spoons.
