"There is a Tuscan saying: Non si tira niente - nothing gets thrown away - that is particularly appropriate vis-a-vis this soup. Carrot tops are almost always discarded. But why? They have the same sweet-earthy taste but with a hint of green that makes them perfect for soups or vegetable sautes. Try the following recipe and let it spur your creativity as to how else to use the delicate frilly leaves." -chef2chef

"This recipe is from my friend Carrie Birrer, who used to own Florio Bakery in Portland. The combination of garlicky greens and white beans is delicious; just don't let it sit around on the stove too long after making it, as the greens will turn to sludge. My rendition of this recipe calls for fewer anchovies and a pinch of red pepper flakes; adjust both according to your own taste."

“Ladling this delicate, vegetable-laden chowder over toasted bread raises it to main-course status. If you don’t want such a hearty dish, use a little less liquid and a few croutons to finish. Use only white endives for this soup. Red ones will make it look very dingy indeed.” –Deborah Madison
