Recipe Ingredients for Bean and Cabbage Soup

1 cup kidney beans (1/2 pound), rinsed and picked over
2 quarts water
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves (to taste), minced
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 1/4 lbs (1/2 head) cabbage, cored and shredded
14 ounce diced tomatoes, with juice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
4 g (1 leaf) bay leaf
1/4 tsp thyme
1 Salt to taste

Recipe Directions for Bean and Cabbage Soup

  1. Combine the beans and water in a large saucepan or pot. Discard any of the beans that float. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer one hour. Season to taste with salt.

  2. In a large, heavy soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat, and add the onions, celery and carrot. Cook, stirring, until tender, five to eight minutes. Add the garlic, stir together for 30 seconds to a minute until fragrant, and add the cabbage and a generous pinch of salt. Cook, stirring often, for five to 10 minutes until the cabbage has wilted. Stir in the tomatoes, salt to taste and the red pepper flakes or cayenne, and continue to cook, stirring, until the tomatoes have cooked down and the mixture smells fragrant, about 10 minutes. Add the beans and their liquid. If the vegetables aren?t covered with liquid, add more so that they?re just covered. Add the bay leaf and thyme, bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer 45 minutes to an hour. The beans should be soft. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve, passing Parmesan if desired to sprinkle on.
