From field to table, this minestrone kit from Cascina Belvedere has been lovingly crafted by one of Italy’s most passionate farming families. Cascina Belvedere is dedicated to the best rice products and is one of the few companies that manage the entire production process, from growing the rice to harvest, milling, and packaging. This all-in-one kit contains everything you need to make a deliciously hearty minestrone in minutes, with no preservatives or artificial flavorings.

The brown rice that gives a substantial heft to this soup kit is grown in the northwestern Piedmont region of Italy, which shares a border with France and Switzerland. Brown rice retains the outer bran of the rice grain stripped away for white rice, giving it a rich, nutty flavor. It’s high in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, making it deliciously nutritious. Here, it’s combined with dehydrated Italian zucchini, beans, carrots, potatoes, and all the seasonings needed for the perfect warming soup.

Rice farmers in Piedmont for generations, the Picco family, have been operating Cascina Belvedere in Bianzè, north of Turin, since 1935. The family-owned business is passionate about the welfare of their land, and their farming practices are designed to protect the natural beauty and bounty of their home while delivering an outstanding product. They use the sovescio technique to keep their soil healthy and full of nutrients, eliminating the need for chemical fertilizers during the growing season. Once it’s harvested, the rice goes through a traditional stone-husking process to preserve more of the nutrients and flavor of each individual grain. It’s then milled in small batches to ensure the highest quality control.

To a medium pot, add the contents of the bag and about 4 cups of cold water. Mix carefully and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. When cooked, season with salt and pepper, add a drizzle of olive oil, and serve.
