"Super-Tuscan" White Bean Soup

Recipe Ingredients for "Super-Tuscan" White Bean Soup

1 pound dried cannellini beans
2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
1 yellow onion, quartered lengthwise
1 celery stalk, quartered crosswise
1 carrot, quartered crosswise
2 cloves garlic, peeled and lightly crushed
1 tsp bay leaf
1 quart chicken stock
1 tsp sea salt, preferably gray salt
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan, optional

Recipe Directions for "Super-Tuscan" White Bean Soup

  1. Cook the beans: Rinse the beans, place in a saucepan, and add cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, cover, and remove from the heat. Let stand for about 20 minutes, then drain.

  2. Return the beans to the saucepan along with the prosciutto, onion, celery, carrot, garlic, and bay leaf. Pour in the chicken stock and then add water as needed to cover the beans by 2 inches. Slowly bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. (If you heat them too fast, the skins may break.) Adjust the heat to maintain a bare simmer and cook, uncovered, until the beans are almost tender, 20 minutes or longer, depending on the age of the beans. Add salt, to taste, and continue cooking until the beans are tender but not mushy, about 20 minutes longer. Remove from the heat and let the beans cool in the liquid.
