Spring Minestrone for Two With a Spanish Twist

35 mins (prep 5, cooking 30)
10 ingredients

I took the base for this recipe from the River Cafe Green cookbook, a famous Italian Restaurant in London. However, I gave it a Spanish twist by using chorizo instead of pancetta. You could certainly take it back to the Italian version if you prefer, or make it more North American by just adding bacon.
