      This is one of the most famous Tuscan soup! We could call it the “Queen Soup”!

      If you come to Tuscany and you have lunch in a “Trattoria”, Zuppa di Fagioli is on the top of the menù.

      Some people confuse this recipe with “Ribollita” which is its sister, but with the addition of bread.

      Many people think that this is a very difficult recipe to prepare but the difficulty is only in the ingredients’ preparation.

      This is the first choice for a vegetarian meal during my cooking classes.

      So, are you curious to try it? Read and follow my instructions and you won’t regret it!

      Done

      Preparation of the base

      Cover the bottom of a pot with olive oil and add the onions sliced roughly with a glass of water since they get soft. The water is useful because it allows onions not to fry but to boil, so it is easier to digest.
      Cut the carrots and the celery in pieces and add half a glass of water and cover with the lid. Leave to cook approx 5 min.

      Done

      Preparation of the vegetables

      Slice Savoy cabbage, Head Cabbage, Kale, and Chard and add into the pot. Cover and leave to cook since they are soft (pierce with a fork to test if cooked).

      Done

      Preparation of the soup

      In a separate bowl, blend about ¾ of the previously cooked beans and pour the puree directly into the vegetables and keep the others aside. Stir together.
      Add 4 tablespoons of tomato paste, salt, 4/5 thyme leaves, and the beans stir and let it cook at a medium temperature.
