Truffled Bread Sticks
Serves 6-8 people.
In a soup pot over medium heat, sauté the olive oil, onion, garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook until the onion is lightly brown and tender, about 6, minutes. Add the cabbage, season with salt and pepper and cook until just wilted, 2-3 minutes. Pour on the beef stock and bring to a boil, simmer just 5-10 minutes to blend the flavors.
To serve, place plenty of truffled bread croutons in each soup bowl and pour the hot soup on top. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and grated cheese.
