The Ribollita is one of the most popular Italian bread soups. This historical recipe prepared in Tuscany since the Middle Ages, and came from the necessity to reuse the stale bead mixing it with the herbs and vegetables available in the garden: the result is simply delicious! To prepare an authentic Ribollita, Tuscan bread, Lacinato kale and beans are essential ingredients: a traditionally vegan delight!
This cabbage soup is the kind of comfort food I prefer: tasty, greedy and rich in vitamins! Preparing this recipe I’ve been inspired by the classic French soup. Shiitake mushrooms give a particular flavor to this cabbage soup. The secret of this recipe is the onion, very smooth and caramelized. I stir fried the vegetables with clarified butter, but it’s possible use a mix of butter and extra virgin olive oil as well.
