Vegetable Minestrone Recipe

My husband and I created this recipe to replicate the minestrone soup at our favorite Italian restaurant. It's nice to have this ready to eat for our evening meal on days when we have a real busy schedule. To make the soup vegetarian, use vegetable broth instead of beef.—Alice Peacock, Grandview, Missouri

We don't like "chunks" of tomato's in soup so can I gently pluse these first in a food processor or would it make it too runny, too much liquid? Thanks!

1/4 tsp of garlic powder? How about 3 cloves of garlic!
