Ribollita is a Tuscan pottage made with bread and vegetables. The main ingredients always include leftover bread, cannellini beans, and inexpensive vegetables such as carrot, celery, Lacinato kale (aka Tuscan kale), and onion.

I made it for the sleep event at Mrs.G’s, because it includes sleep supporting ingredients. I held it for two hours at a simmer setting on the Jenn-Air induction cooktop. It didn’t scorch and didn’t dry out. Perfection 

If possible, make the soup the day before. It will taste even better.

Ingredients
  1. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 1 small onion, chopped
  3. 1 carrot, chopped
  4. 1 celery stalk, chopped
  5. 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  6. Salt and ground black pepper
  7. 1 15-ounce diced tomatoes, drained
  8. 1 fresh rosemary sprig
  9. 1 fresh oregano sprig
  10. 2 cups home-cooked or canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed.
  11. 4 cups cooking liquid from the beans, vegetable stock, or water
  12. 1 pound chopped kale
  13. 4 large, thick slices stale rustic bread, torn into bite size pieces.
  14. ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan
Instructions
  1. In a large pot over medium-low heat saute onion, carrot, celery and garlic in olive oil. Add some salt and pepper and cook very gently, occasionally stirring, until vegetables are soft but haven’t changed color.
  2. Add the tomatoes and herbs and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Add beans, water or beans cooking liquid, rosemary, and oregano. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a gentle simmer; cover and cook, stirring once or twice to break up the tomatoes, until the flavors meld, about 30 minutes.
  4. Fish out and discard the herb sprigs, and stir in kale. Taste and adjust seasoning. Cook until the kale is wilted.
  5. Let the soup sit overnight in the fridge (option).
