I love soup this time of the year so when I received this very healthy looking recipe via e-mail....From Living without Magazine.... I just may have to make this today, all the ingredients look perfect for the Cycle Diet GF or Original. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Gluten-Free Ribollita [/b]
Serves 12

Here’s a delicious way to get your vegetables. This Italian-style soup is chock-full of flavorful goodness. Serve it hot, topped with freshly ground black pepper and grated Parmesan or nondairy cheese. If you omit the potatoes, this soup freezes well.

½ cup olive oil
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 red onion, chopped
4 stalks celery, diced
4 carrots, diced
2 potatoes, diced
1 (28-ounce) can plum tomatoes, drained and chopped (reserve juice)
8 cups water or gluten-free broth of choice
1 tablespoon dried basil
Salt and pepper, to taste
½ savory or green cabbage, shredded
2 (15.5-ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained
1 bunch Swiss chard, washed, deribbed and chopped (I may use spinach instead)
1 bunch kale, washed, deribbed and chopped

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot. Saute the garlic, onion, celery and carrots until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add in the potatoes and tomatoes. Pour in the water or broth and reserved tomato juice. Bring to a boil.
  3. Lower heat and stir in the basil and salt and pepper. Simmer until the potatoes are tender. Mix in the cabbage. Cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the beans, Swiss chard and kale. Cook for another 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly.
