Hearty Tuscan Soup for a Cold Night

Fabbio Picchi's La Zuppa di Dio or God's Soup is an Italian Soup made with beans, kale, tomatoes, bread, and sausage, made by The Taste SF

 

One of our most memorable food experiences in Florence was eating at Fabio Picchi’s Ristorante Cibreo. See when we visited here. When we learned that Picchi had written several Italian cookbooks, we jumped at the chance to make more of his delicious Tuscan dishes at home. On rainy or chilly days we crave hearty dishes that remind us of our rainy week in Florence.

We are in love with these heirloom marcella beans, and this was the perfect opportunity to use them.  This soup is even better the next day, so make sure to save some leftovers for lunch the next day. If you’re looking for other hearty Italian soups, try yellow pepper soup or ribolitta.
