Toss twice with a little vegetable broth and let it evaporate, so glaze the vegetables until the cubes are slightly to the brim. Top with the remaining vegetable broth and boil. Fill the olive leaves in a tea strainer or tea strainer and add this to the hot vegetable soup along with Italian herbs, leave on low heat for about 10 minutes under the closed lid. Finally, season with salt and pepper and remove the tea strainer.

Serving – Coat the soup bowl with some white bread and fill the vegetable soup to the “Ribollita”.
