Tuscan Ribollita Soup with Greens & Butter Beans is a hearty and comforting Italian soup that features a medley of vegetables, beans, and rustic bread. Here’s a recipe to make this delicious soup:


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 can (14 ounces/400g) diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups (960ml) vegetable broth
  • 1 can (14 ounces/400g) butter beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups (about 4-5 slices) stale bread, torn into pieces
  • 4 cups chopped mixed greens (such as kale, Swiss chard, or spinach)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for serving


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, diced carrots, and diced celery. Sauté for about 5 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften.
  2. Add the minced garlic, dried rosemary, and dried thyme to the pot. Stir and cook for an additional minute until the herbs become fragrant.
  3. Pour in the diced tomatoes and vegetable broth. Stir well to combine.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  5. Add the butter beans to the pot and stir to incorporate them into the soup.
  6. Tear the stale bread into pieces and add it to the pot. Stir well to combine, ensuring that the bread is soaked in the broth.
  7. Add the chopped mixed greens to the pot and stir until they wilt down into the soup.
  8. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Simmer the soup for an additional 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the bread breaks down and the soup thickens to your desired consistency.
  10. Serve the Tuscan Ribollita Soup hot, sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese on top.
