  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup thinly sliced onion
  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 1 cup diced zucchini
  • 1 cup green beans cut into 1-inch lengths

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large pot, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the onion, cover and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the cabbage, zucchini, green beans, tomatoes and chicken stock; season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil.

  2. Cover and simmer the soup over low heat until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Add the pasta and cook until heated through. Stir in the hummus just before serving. Ladle the soup into bowls, drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, sprinkle with the cheese and serve.

Make Ahead

The soup can be refrigerated overnight. Rewarm gently without boiling.
