In a large pot heat the olive oil over medium heat.
Add the onions, carrots and garlic and sauté for two minutes until slightly tender. Add the cabbage, bell peppers and fennel, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until the vegetables are crisp tender, about five more minutes. Add the cannellini beans and broth, and simmer for 15 minutes until everything is tender.
Ladle it out into bowls, and stir a bit of the spicy pepper relish into any of the portions where heat and piquancy is desired. Sprinkle the cheese over any of the bowls.
