I really did not like this soup. It was the consistency (not the flavor) that I didn't like. There was just way to starch for me. I made Tomato Basil Soup last weekend, and I put saltines in it. That was plenty "thick" for me.
I'll start off by saying I made a BIG change to this soup-- since I didn't have enough bread/needed some protein, I added a handful of red lentils brown lentils (they don't have much flavor on their own, and when you cook long enough, they will dissolve to practically nothing). I also added a spoon of tomato paste to boost the flavor a bit since the lentils may have diluted it a bit. Besides that, I changed nothing. The flavor and texture of this soup was really good! Perfect for this chilly night, and pretty easy to whip together!
I'll be making this sometime this weekend. I made bread that did not turn out right, but that I thought would be perfect for something like this.
Wonderful and easy soup. I used Chiabatta bread and drizzeled with good quality EVOO and sprinkled with Parmesano Reggiano. What a treat!! Thanks for posting.
This was great. It's easy to make and is the perfect food for an autumn or winter evening.
One of my favs
Yummy! I've always heard about bread soup before but have never tried it until now. This is full of flavor, very filling, and easy to prepare. Thanks for a new treat that will be repeated.
I have only ever eaten this at restaurants before, this is way better. rich and satisfying...and SO easy! I added more garlic just cause we like it...really nice soup!
