Ribollita is a famous Tuscan soup whose name literally means
"reboiled". Like most Tuscan cuisine, the soup has peasant origins. It was
originally made by reheating (ie. reboiling) the leftover
vegetable soup from the previous day.

There are many variations but the main ingredients always include leftover
bread, cannellini beans and inexpensive vegetables such as carrot, zucchini,
spinach or silverbeet, cavolo nero (Tuscan Kale Lute) and onion.
