But aside from these as we hear the country of Italy, most of us would always think that it is the home of the flavorful pizzas and pasta that would make us crave for it. However, little do we know that apart from their known dishes, there’s a lot of food that it can offer to any tourists that are planning to visit their peaceful yet scenic country.
Ribollita is an Italian word for reboiled. It is a Tuscan soup that is made up of beans, cavolo nero, carrots, celery, and leftover bread. With its cheap yet hearty meal, this is recognized as one of the poor man’s food during old times.
