By the way, this was really good with the La Brea Olive bread I picked up while I was shopping today.
Tuscan Cabbage and White Bean Soup
1 bunch of Tuscan cabbage, chopped
1 bunch of curly kale, chopped
1 c. of chopped carrots
6.5 oz of chestnut meats (Melissa's), chopped (great product, by the way, since it comes vacuum packed and "meats only")
1 onion chopped
3 Tbsp of Bari olive oil
6 cloves of garlic smashed and chopped
1 Tbsp of chopped fresh thyme
1 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 c. dry white beans (soaked and rinsed first)
1/2 c. green lentils (soaked and rinsed first)
2 cans chicken broth
4 to 6 cups of water
Olive oil in the pan. Saute onions and garlic till wilted and browned. Add in kale and Tuscan cabbage and saute till wilted. Add in carrots and chestnuts. Lightly brown. Add in spices then lentils and beans. Add in broth and water. Simmer for 45 minutes.
