Tuscan Harvest Stew with Garlic Crostini and Apricot Preserves

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

Also known as ribollita. A Tuscan stew of cannellini bean and escarole and aromatic market vegetables stewed in a rosemary tomato broth finished with crusty bread and parmesan.

Short History: Ribollita comes from the middle ages in the Tuscan region of Italy – peasants who served royalty with taking the bread and other leftovers after their meals and use them to make a new meal of their own. They would take beans, spices, vegetables from their gardens, etc. and add them to the pot, and add olive oil. The Tuscan traditional saying that goes with this dish is “non buttar via niente” – which means don’t throw away anything! This Ribollita from The Vegan Taste will give you fiber, folic acid, potassium, carotene, antioxidants, and more!

Reheating Instructions: Bring to a simmer over medium and simmer until warm, or microwave on high for 2 mins. Toast the bread.
