1/4 cup plus 4 teaspoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 carrots, cut into 1/4-inch dice
2 ribs celery, sliced
1 zucchini, cut in quarters lengthwise and then crosswise into thin slices
3/4 pound green cabbage, (about 1/4 head) shredded, or about 3 cups
1 1/2 quarts canned low sodium chicken broth, or homemade stock
1 2/3 cups canned pinto beans, drained and rinsed (one 15-ounce can)
1/2 cup arborio rice
3/4 pound boiling potatoes, (about 2) peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Grated Parmesan cheese




In a large pot, heat the 1/4 cup oil over moderate heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, carrots, and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add the zucchini and cabbage. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, about 5 minutes longer.

Add the broth, beans, rice, potatoes, tomato paste, bay leaf, thyme, and salt to the pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the rice and vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Remove the bay leaf.

Stir the pepper into the soup. Sprinkle each bowlful with Parmesan and drizzle each with 1 teaspoon of the remaining oil.


Wine Recommendation: Salice Salentino, a rich and rustic red from southern Italy’s Apulia, is a heartwarming match for this familiar classic. The wine is produced in vast quantities, making it a snap to find.

Groundnut Stew

Peanut butter and okra flavor and thicken this tasty African stew. You can substitute green beans for the okra, if you like; the consistency of the sauce won’t be quite the same, but it will still be thick enough to cling to the chicken.

From south of the border comes this spicy and hearty soup ladled over crisp tortilla strips and grated cheddar. The soup is chunky with chicken and avocado, but it’s the tortillas that give it a slight thickness and a special flavor.
