A Tuscan dish that celebrates seasonal vegetables and the first press of extra virgin olive oil. Adding bread turns this soup into a main course.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups dry cranberry beans or pinto beans
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 med carrots, chopped
  • 1 med white onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 head savoy cabbage, cored and chopped
  • 1 bunch Swiss chard (or kale), stemmed and chopped
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 6 slices Italian bread, torn into pieces
  • 6 tsp olive oil (for drizzling over the top of each bowl of soup)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

Directions

  • In a large pot cover the beans with water and soak overnight.
  • Drain the soaking liquid, cover the beans with water, and cook the beans with the bay leaves and 2 of the garlic cloves over medium heat until they are soft, about 60 to 90 minutes. Strain the beans, reserving 1 cup of the liquid to add to the soup.
  • In a food processor, shred the remaining 2 cloves of garlic with the celery, carrot, and onion until very finely chopped. You want tiny pieces of the vegetables, not a purée.
  • Sauté the vegetables in ¼ cup of extra-virgin olive oil on medium-low heat, about 10 minutes, or until they are fragrant and slightly colored.
  • Add the cooked beans and the 1 cup cooking water, cabbage, chard (or kale), and water. Bring to a simmer and cook for approximately one hour. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Crumble the bread into small chunks and place a handful of the bread in each bowl. Ladle the soup over it and let it sit for a few minutes for the bread to soften and the broth to be absorbed.
  • Finish each bowl with a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and a few teaspoons freshly grated Parmesan.
