[Recipe] Tuscan Cabbage and White Bean Soup

Posted by dmzlucka on Jan 31, 2012

J. Marchini Farms (at the Vineyard) turned me on to Tuscan cabbage so ...guess what? Tuscan cabbage and white bean soup. It's very simple and it fills your kitchen with an utterly divine aroma. It looked particularly sweet in my Deda (Grandpa) Jack's soup dishes (circa 1930). Note, there is a similar recipe in the current Whole Foods "4 Pillars of Health" flyer. Basically, its the same but I went a little nuts with the seasonal veggies and added the Tuscan cabbage, kale, chestnuts and lentils. Their recipe looks equally as tasty and probably a lot faster.
