Womp Womp Womp

Well hello again everyone. Sorry for my long absence. Work and life have been crazy as of late, but everything is calming back down so that means more time for cooking and then of course writing about it! And well, more time for fun in general!

Although this isn't the first recipe I've made since my business has subsided, I had high hopes for it and sharing it with you. That being said, I feel some disclosure is due here: 1) I love pesto 2) I don't own a food processor 3) I'm a texture eater

Without further ado, I give you my experience with Chicken Pesto Minestrone, a recipe from the blog Bev Cooks.


I've been eyeing this recipe for awhile now and finally decided to make it on probably the hottest day of the year so far. That was probably my first mistake...who eats soup when it's hot outside? For some reason I thought that was a good idea. My second mistake was tyring to make the pesto in the blender. It took FOREVER and eventually I said, "I give up, I'm going with what I got". So I followed the rest of the recipe...


It kind of looks like a witches cauldron...no? It smelled heavenly even if it doesn't really look all that appetizing. The only edit to the recipe that I made was to just boil two chicken breasts and cut those up instead of using a rotisserie chicken. The soup would actually be relatively quick to make, as soups go, if you have a food processor!


This is where the womp, womp, womp comes in...I loved the flavors of the soup, but it was so gritty because I didn't get the pesto to the right consistency in the blender and so I couldn't eat it. I tried and tried and pretty much ate the whole bowl, but I didn't enjoy it. And I haven't eaten the rest of it. I guess that's what I get for making soup on an 80+ degree day.

I will definitely revisit this once my kitchen tools have been upgraded. In the meantime, anyone that does have a food processor, I would definitely recommend this soup.
