Chickpea Minestrone


December 12, 2011 by Dana

Hello!  I’m back… and with something delicious!

Well don’t look so surprised.  I am a woman of my word, after all.  I told you I’d be back in less than 2 months and here I am, two weeks and a tasty new soup recipe later.

And since I held up my end of the bargain, I am hoping you can do a little something for me.

You see, this Chickpea Minestrone is not just any old soup recipe.  It’s my entry into this year’s New England Country Soup Challenge!  You can find the recipe on my entry page.

So what do I need from you?  Your votes, of course!

Please click here to head over to my recipe and click the big red “Vote for this Recipe” button!

They changed the rules a little this year, and you do have to register an email address to vote, but you don’t get any emails or spam from them.  Promise!  You can vote once a day every day until February 12.  Thanks! :)

    However did you get this snow thing going on your site. I have to say it kind of freaked me out this early in the morning and thought something funky was going on with my daughter’s laptop when it first started.
    I do love it, especially since we don’t see too much of it here in Phoenix.
