I have been sick with a crazy cold for the past week or so, and all I’ve wanted to eat are spicy dishes or bubbling, piping hot soup.
This quick and easy tomato bruschetta bread bowl soup completely fits the bill and worked wonders on my aching throat. Remember those Italian Herb bread bowls I made for y’all a few weeks back? The idea for this bruschetta soup came to my mind waaaaay before that post, and I actually created those bread bowls specifically so I could experiment with this soup.
I’m so happy I did!
Tomatoes, basil, balsamic and bread. I mean seriously, how bad could that be? The flavors are simply incredible, and the dish is sooo easy to make! If you don’t want to go through the process of making your own bread bowls, then don’t! Just buy a couple of bread bowls from the store, load them up with soup then finish them off with a layer of bubbling cheese.
Trust. You’ll be so happy you did.
