This is a very simple dish that can be made more substantial by adding a couple of hundred grams of rice that will be cooked in the soup after bringing it to a boil. Put in a pot some chopped bacon with a bunch of parsley, add some diced carrots, a chopped onion, some pieces of celery and leeks, two teaspoons of tomato paste, two liters of water, salt, pepper and let it cook for about 1 hour and ½. Meanwhile, prepare a cabbage, cut it into strips and put it to soak in cold water. As soon as the vegetables are cooked, add the cabbage and red beans; simmer for a few moments. Remove from heat, cool the soup by placing the pot in a container half filled with cold water. Then pour it into a freezer container, close and freeze.


Tomato concentrate is obtained through an industrial process, which in fact consists of removing all the water from the fruit and therefore extracting all its other components:
sugars, salts, acids.
This method is also an excellent way of preserving the product, which is industrially vacuum-packed in a can, but which can be put in a jar and sterilized like any other type of can.
