This soup is a meal in itself, filled with winter vegetables and a secret ingredient that adds texture and flavor to the soup: a rind from a piece of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (just remember to remove it before serving). Serve this hearty soup accompanied by crusty bread, like ciabatta.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large heavy stockpot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and celery. Cook until light brown, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.

  • Add tomato juice, 5 cups water, potatoes, and wine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, and cook 5 minutes. Add thyme, celeriac, carrots, fennel, chopped tomatoes, reserved juice, and Parmigiano-Reggiano rind; stir well to combine. Cook until vegetables are fork-tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Stir in escarole and parsley. Cook until escarole wilts. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
