Fry the onion in the olive oil until soft but not browned. Add the tinned tomatoes and stock and bring to a simmer. Add the vegetable medley and cook for 4 minutes, then add the peas and sliced beans and cook for 2 minutes. Finally add the spring greens and cook until all the veg is tender. Season the minestrone and add a little boiling water to thin it out if you need to.
Serve the soup topped with a spoonful of pesto and a few shavings of Parmesan, with crusty bread on the side.

Freezing and defrosting guidelines
Make the soup, then leave to cool at room temperature. Freeze (without garnishes or toppings) in a rigid container, leaving a bit of space for expansion, for up to 1-3 months. Reheat either from frozen or defrost in the fridge overnight. Once piping hot, add toppings or garnishes and serve.
