  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 6 spring onions, chopped
  • 140 g fine green beans, topped
  • 400 g white butter beans, drained
  • 400 g red kidney beans, drained
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 4 cups good-quality chicken stock
  • 250 g butternut-and-sage cappelletti
  • Maldon sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 100 g grated Parmesan
  • a few leaves of fresh thyme
  • 30 g fresh basil, ripped, for serving

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 190ºC.
Place the celery, spring onion, all the beans and thyme in the chicken stock then bring to a boil. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes. Add the cappelletti and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Season to taste.
To make the wafers, lightly grease a sheet of baking paper and spread the grated Parmesan into 8 rounds, about 10cm each in diameter. Sprinkle with a few thyme leaves and bake for 4 to 5 minutes, until the edges change colour. Shape over a rolling pin or use as is.
Serve the wafers with the broth.
