Mango Magic

Ribollita as the first course and Mango Spice Tea Cake as the second course was a satisfying Sunday dinner full of vegetables, beans, fruit and whole grains. Making a vegetable soup the day before grocery shopping is a great way to use various vegetables one has on hand.  My soup has yellow squash, eggplant, spinach, cabbage, potatoes, carrots and navy beans.  I used a can of low sodium V-8 in place of the tomatoes as I did not want to open another can.  The cake was inspired by Saveur magazine.   I made mine in small (4 1/4 inch) pie pans.
