On today's show I will be discussing a soup recipe called Ribollita. This dish hails from Tuscany and there are many variations but it always contains stale or day old bread. It also alwyas conaines beans, usually canellini beans and Italian black kale called Lacinato.
This soup like most Tuscan dishes has peasant origins. the name ribollita litterally means re-boiled. I love how hearty this soup is, perfect for acold winter of fall day. It's a satisfying recipe and due to it's rustic nature, it's rather flexible...you feel free to make it your own.
In this episode I mention a new product called Umami Mia, a line ofvegan parmesan cheese I and developing which will be released soon. visit http://www.harvestetaing.com or http://www.facebook.com/umamimia to learn more.
