Prosciutto beautifully complements cabbage and beans, but if you toss it into the soup pot its flavor cooks away to nothing. Sprinkle some over the top of each serving instead.
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 fresh or canned plum tomatoes, chopped
1/2 small head savoy cabbage (about 3/4 pound), cut into 1-inch squares (about 5 cups)
1 quart water
2 cups canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
2 cups drained and rinsed canned white beans, preferably cannellini beans (from one 19-ounce can)
1/4 pound sliced prosciutto, chopped
Cabbage-and-White-Bean Soup with Prosciutto Recipe at
In a large pot, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the garlic and tomatoes and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.

Add the cabbage, water, broth, rosemary, and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the cabbage is tender, about 20 minutes.

Stir in the beans and simmer until just warmed through, about 3 minutes. Ladle the soup into bowls and sprinkle the prosciutto over the top.

Savoy Cabbage: Beautiful crinkled leaves make Savoy cabbage the most attractive member of the cabbage family. It also has a unique flavor, mellower than other varieties, even a little bit sweet. But you can certainly substitute regular green cabbage here if you prefer.

Easy but not too simple
This soup couldn't be easier to prepare, but the rosemary and garlic lend it a depth that develops quickly. And of course, the prosciutto on the top sends it over the top!
