Ingredients

  • 1 pound Navy beans
  • 1/2 pound salt pork
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 pound diced potatoes
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 pound shredded cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 tablespoon olive oil
  • 12 ounces tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1/2 cup rice
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas optional

Instructions

  • Heat 12 cups water to boil, turn off heat, add beans and soak for 1 hour. Add salt pork and simmer 1 hour. Saute onion, garlic, in oil until golden and set aside. 
  • Prepare vegetables, then add to beans with garlic, onions, salt, pepper, seasonings, tomato paste, and rice. At this time, you can also add 4 additional cups of water and continue to cook until thick. 
  • Puree in processor at least 1/2 soup mixture, and then mix with un-pureed portion. Serve with Parmesan or Asiago cheese sprinkled on top. Note: This is better when prepared at least 1 day before serving, and then re-heated to serve. Add either Asaigo or Parmesan cheese to the top.
