Farmers Market Ribolleta
Ribollita means "twice boiled" in Italian; this Farmers Market version has plenty of beans and vegetables. Many substitutions can be made, based on what vegetables you have on hand. This soup also freezes well, just omit adding the bread until serving.
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 medium onion, diced (2 1/2 cups)
1 stalk celery, sliced (3/4 cups)
1 medium zucchini, diced (1 1/4 cups or 5 1/4 ounces)
2 carrots, peeled and diced (1/3 cup)
3 cloves garlic, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
1 head cabbage, cleaned and coarsely chopped or shredded (7 1/2 cups)
2 large tomatoes, diced, OR 1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes, in juice
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1 teaspoon Italian spice blend
1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans
10 cups broth - any type
4 cups cubed bread (about 1/2 loaf)
3 cups baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
In a soup pot or Dutch oven heat the 1/4 cup olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, celery, zucchini, carrots, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook until the vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes. Add the cabbage, tomatoes, basil, and Italian spice and season again with salt and pepper. Cook until cabbage is just tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the beans and broth, and adjust the heat to simmer for 20 minutes.
Stir in the bread (if you plan to freeze any soup, add bread at serving time) and spinach, increase the heat to medium and cook until the soup thickens, about 10 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle soup into bowls, top with cheese and a little drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.
