  1. Place the olive oil in a deep pan and heat over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until transparent, about 5 minutes. Mix in the carrots, celery, potatoes, zucchini, and leek. Stir and cook 5 minutes more. Pour in the hot water to cover the vegetables. Stir in the Swiss chard, Savoy cabbage, and kale. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 1 hour.
  2. Place 1 can of beans in a blender or food processor bowl. Blend until smooth. Stir pureed beans into the vegetable mixture along with the second can of beans. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the tomato puree.
  3. Prepare the soup by layering slices of bread with the vegetable mixture in a casserole or soup dish. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, or overnight.
  4. To serve the soup, place in a pot, and reheat over medium heat. Serve hot.

Very good soup. I made it without adding the bread and ate it right after it was done cooking. I will make it again!

very tasty, but you have to like bread in your soup! Hearty vegies were nice.

Very hearty italian peasant soup, but be advised this recipe makes 6 quarts of soup. The bread adds a nice flavor to a filling soup.

The classic version of La Ribollita. I actually made this in the slow cooker for 4 hours on high after sauteing the veggies as instructed. I then let it sit overnight in the fridge as required...
