I adapted a potato muffin recipe to create these savory muffins that helped use up my overflowing stock of vegetables from my garden!

Ribollita (Reboiled Italian Cabbage Soup)

Rating: 4.67 stars

Ribollita means twice-cooked, or 'reboiled,' in Italian. A white bean stock is livened up with greens, tomatoes, and potatoes with added slices of toasted bread. The soup should be refrigerated overnight. All you'll have to do the next day is reboil it. Allow time for soaking the beans.
