I needed day old bread for this recipe and so I cut a few slices from the olive bread I made earlier and threw them in the oven for a few minutes to 'age' them. The resulting soup was tasty but perhaps a bit breadier than I would have liked. I think this could have been due to one or more of the following reasons;
- This recipe was not designed to be halved
- Having been off carbs, the bread was a bit of a shock to the system
- It's just not my type of soup (Trev loved it)
- You really shouldn't fake day old bread
Whatever the reason, this is the first recipe I don't think I will make again. Pretty good odds given that I have loved 64 out of 65 recipes so far.
