In the Middle Ages, Tuscans invented ribollita—later to become one of the region’s most popular dishes—by thickening their vegetable soup with bread. Our ribollita is brimming with white beans, Lacinato kale (a Tuscan favorite) and more­. We’re making it with sourdough, which breaks down in the heat and adds satisfying body to the savory tomato broth. And we’re topping off each bowl with a velvety, soft-boiled egg. What’s more, ribollita is just as delicious the next day—its name (meaning “reboiled”) attests to that!
