Ingredients

SERVES 4

– 300 g cicerchia
– 1 onion finely chopped
– 1 savoy cabbage chopped into strips
– 4 potatoes diced
– vegetable broth
– 4 cloves
– 1 bay leaf
– 1 sprig of rosemary
– EVO to taste
– salt to taste
– a few bread slices toasted

Directions

Soak the cicerchia for 2 hours in cold water; then rinse it, drain and cook the cicerchia for ab. 40-50 minutes in vegetable broth along with cloves, bay leaf and rosemary. When the cicerchia is almost cooked (ab. 35-40 minutes), sauté the onion in a pan together with the cabbage and let cook for a couple of minutes until the cabbage soften. At this point, add in the potatoes, cover with vegetable broth and add salt to taste. As soon as potatoes soften, blend the soup with an immersion blender in order to obtain a smooth cream. Incorporate the cicerchia to the purée and let simmer over low flame for a couple of more minutes so that all flavours can well amalgamate. Add a final drizzle of EVO just before serving along with a toasted slice of bread on the side.
