The recipe

Bean soup

The recipe is taken from "La Natura in Tavola Fattoria di Volmiano: ricette e segreti" by Vittoria Gondi Citernesi, Polistampa edition.

Take 350 g of dried cannellini beans and soak them overnight in plenty of water. The next morning, cook the beans with 2 cherry tomatoes, 2 cloves of garlic and a sprig of sage, adding salt at the last moment. Fry the garlic, sage and a piece of bacon, which you can then remove. Add a bottle of tomato (our bottles are 750 ml, but they are raw sauce, corresponding to about 450 g of puree) and make a sauce, season with salt, pepper and if sour, add a pinch of sugar. Take half of the beans and mash them. Put together the sauce, the puree and the whole beans with their water, maybe not all of them, the soup should be thick, not liquid. Slice the beans into thin roasted slices, season with garlic and put them on top of the soup, then drizzle with fresh extra virgin olive oil.
