  • 1 cup canned cannellini navy beans, or gigantes
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

  • ½ cup chopped parsley
  • 1 small Savoy or Napa cabbage quartered, cored, and chopped
  • 2 plump garlic cloves minced or pounded with a pinch salt

  1. Chop all the vegetables. Rinse the leeks, kale, and cabbage, but don’t dry them.
