Oil a heavy based pan and add the onions, carrots, and leek then sweat for 5 min on a medium to low heat, stirring occasionally.
Add the canned tomatoes, cannellini beans, hon mirin, stock base, and a can full of water, then bring to a boil. Simmer on a low heat for approx. 30 min.
Add the greens and season to taste. If the soup is too thick, loosen with a splash of hot water.
Serve with a dash of olive oil and grated cheese to taste.
・Hon mirin (sweet rice seasoning) is a key condiment in Japanese cooking, thanks to its subtle natural sweetness and balanced flavour. Unlike cheaper mirin-style condiments, hon mirin (meaning “real mirin”) is a term reserved for a more carefully crafted condiment containing just three ingredients—glutinous rice, rice koji, and alcohol—slowly fermented and matured for an altogether superior product.
・Use hon mirin to make light and mellow compotes. Core and slice a pear, layer in a small pan then add hon mirin until the pear is just covered. Simmer on a low heat until very soft.
