On a cold winter's day, a bowl of hot hearty soup is great! It can warm you up as well as nourish you. Our beans soup comes from Tuscany and it's a specialty down there. Serve it with some toasted bread and, why not, with some fresh sliced onion.
Soak the beans overnight. Cut the vegetables into dices. Keep one onion apart. In a clay pot (if you have it, otherwise a normal saucepan will be ok), sautè your vegetables together with your legumes. Cover with 1lt. water. Add salt and cook on a low heat for 90min. Set aside for one day. Before serving it, arrange some bread slices into a clean saucepan. Pour over them your soup. Heat on a medium heat. Serve with a drizzle of extravirgin olive oil.
