A hot herby broth made with onions, root vegetables and leaves, ladled over grilled bread and finished with cheese. A soup similar to Italian ribollito, but made only with British ingredients and a great way to use up leftovers

Method

  1. To make the soup first grill the bread, brushing with a little oil then grilling in a dry pan or ridged grill pan over a medium heat until crisped.
  2. Put a slice of bread into each warmed soup bowl.
  3. Heat the oil in a large pan and add the onion and garlic.
  4. Cook over a low heat for 10 minutes; do not let them take on any colour or it will spoil the flavour of the soup.
  5. Add the carrots, celery and chopped vegetables and cook, stirring occasionally over a medium-low heat for another 3 minutes.
  6. Add the tomatoes, cook for another 3 minutes then add the stock, beans and cabbage leaves and bring to the boil.
  7. Simmer until the cabbage leaves are tender, taste and add salt and pepper – you will need only the smallest amount.
  8. Serve the soup ladled over the grilled bread; sprinkle a few drops of extra virgin olive oil on top then scatter over the herbs and some grated cheese.

Variations

This is a very flexible recipe, designed to use up what you have in store – chop and change the vegetables as you wish, but always use onions.
