ACQUA COTTA MAREMMANA
It was the poor traditional soup of “butteri”, the cowboys from Maremma.
200 gr ( 7 oz) peas
200 gr ( 7 oz) beans
1 celery stalk
1 glass of wine
Put a glass of olive oil in a large saucepan, add the sliced onions and some sage leaves to brown. Then add peas, broad beans, celery, sliced carrots, beet. As son as the vegetables begin to cook, add a glass of warm water for each person, salt, pepper, a glass of wine (red or white), and cook at least for one hour. At the end, put one egg per person. Pour out the soup in the dishes over a layer of sliced stale bread.
Note: the quantity of the vegetables are optional, as well as their quantity, as they go with seasonal availability and personal liking.
