Yes, it’s April. Yes, it was snowing last week. No, it’s not yet time to put the soup pot in the back of the cupboard, so why not another version of cabbage soup. This one has a slightly more Mediterranean vibe than my Polish/Scandinavian version as it uses cannellini beans, rosemary and a bit of tomato paste.
The weather the last few weeks has been a roller coaster – sun and warmth, to freezing cold and snow, to chilly and raining. It doesn’t know what it’s doing and likewise our dinners have been a bit confused.
What is a store cupboard standby that can be dressed up in any way with any ingredient you happen to have and can be as homely or as luxurious as you want? Risotto, of course.
