Several years ago I marked a recipe for this soup that I really wanted to make. And never did. In fact I completely forgot about it. Until I was looking thru Donna’s modern classics.
Admittedly it’s not the original recipe I found but it was quite tasty. And filling. I was so afraid it would be rather bland since the only flavors added were sliced garlic, pepper, and basil leaves but I worried for nothing.
Donna called for wood fired bread, not gonna happen unless I build an outdoor oven, and over ripe tomatoes. I had some good crusty bread in the freezer and some canned tomatoes. Since the tomatoes had already been peeled and canned they worked out perfectly.
I only made 1/2 of the recipe but that was enough for 3 nice servings. Next time I will make more.
Want to see more soup – visit Wednesdays with Donna Hay to see how the others liked my pick for this week.
The recipe is on page 24 of modern classics. I also found it online if you want to try it out, too.
