DIRECTIONS

  • Soak cannelini beans in warm water overnight (or approx 8 hours). In a separate container, soak chickpeas and wheatberries together with baking powder overnight (or approx 8 hours).
  • Lighlty salt soaking water and cook cannelini beans and chickpea/wheatberry mixture separately until al dente.
  • Drain both pots, but don't throw the chickpea/wheatberry cooking water out-you'll need it for later.
  • Add Cannellini beans to chickpea/wheatberry mixture in a big pot. Put back 7 cups of the cooking water (or if you eyeballed the bean/pea/berry amounts like I did, just make sure it's covered enough to look like a soup and add fresh water if needed). Salt and pepper the water just a teeny bit. Cook all together until everything is tender. When served, drizzle soup with olive oil, herbs, and pepper to taste.
