This rustic Tuscan recipe has its origins in the Middle Ages. A bread-thickened, tomato-based soup, ribollita is one of the region’s most popular dishes. Our version uses sourdough bread, with Italian favorites like creamy cannellini beans, earthy Lacinato kale and traditional aromatics mixed in. For a truly special finish, we’re using an array of tasty garnishes—classics like parsley and Parmesan, plus a silky soft-boiled egg served directly on top.
