Pappa pomodoro (Tuscan bread soup)

PT50M

1
Place the onions in a large pan with a little oil and gently sweat, without colouring. Add the dried chilli flakes to the onion and cook for 20 minutes
  • 100g of onion, diced
  • 2g of dried chilli flakes
2
Add the chicken stock and tomatoes to the pan, mix well and cook for 15 more minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure the soup doesn't catch
  • 500g of tinned chopped tomatoes
  • 100ml of chicken stock
3
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil until warm in a separate pan. Add the garlic and basil to the pan and infuse in the oil for 2 minutes
  • 175ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • 25g of garlic, chopped
  • 25g of fresh basil
4
Add the infused oil into the tomato base and stir, then add the bread which will instantly cause the soup to thicken. Cook for 12–15 minutes, breaking down the bread into the soup by stirring with a whisk - the texture should still be quite chunky
  • 150g of stale bread, crusts removed and torn into chunks
5
Season with salt and pepper and adjust the heat with a little extra cayenne pepper or chilli to your taste. Drizzle in a little extra virgin olive oil and serve
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • dried chilli flakes, optional
  • extra virgin olive oil
