Tuck into a warm bowl of minestrone soup as the nights get cooler. Loaded with veggies, cannellini beans, pillowy gnocchi and a hearty glug of red wine, it is the perfect comfort food to rustle up midweek. 

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the onion, garlic, carrot and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes until the onion has softened.
  2. Stir through the vegetable stock, red wine, chopped tomatoes and oregano. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir through the kale and cannellini beans and simmer uncovered for a further 5 minutes. Stir through the gnocchi and chopped basil and cook for a further 2 minutes. Season to taste.
  4. Divide between 4 bowls and serve topped with shavings of Parmesan and the reserved basil leaves.
