Ribollita is a famous Tuscan soup, a potage made with bread, beans and vegetables – carrots, cabbage, silverbeet, cavolo nero, and onion. Ribollita means “reboiled” and speaks of the origins of this soup: back in the day, the Florentins would boil the leftover soup, added vegetables, beans and leftover bread to make the ribollita. However, it does not taste like any of the leftovers you have in mind.
