Pappa Al Pomodoro – Bread Soup

bread-soup-1

I was watching an episode of Barefoot Contessa over the weekend where everything she made had bread as the main ingredient. One recipe was this soup (Pappa Al Pomodoro) and I thought, soup with bread IN it? That sounds pretty awesome, so we made it for dinner on Sunday. We also have tons of tomatoes and carrots to use from our CSA to use up so I’m on the hunt for tomato carrot recipes. I thought the soup was delish and pretty different, so I thought I’d share with you.

You cook the carrots, onions, fennel and garlic then add the bread before you add any liquid.

We peeled our fresh tomatos instead of using canned (as we did here).

We also had some fresh basil growing in our garden still that we used in the recipe.

At the end you whisk the soup to break up the bread cubes and add a little parmesean cheese.

It’s really quite good, enjoy!
