tonight's dinner - tomato soup

allie made this last weekend for her friends and told me the recipe

tomato soup with bread

several cloves garlic, smashed and diced
1 medium onion, diced
3 to 4 anchovies, chopped and added (if you like, we both agree it adds something) and the oil
saute in some olive oil for a few minutes til the onions are translucent

two 16oz cans of whole skinless italian tomatoes (no fire roasted ones sez allie!, mush them some in the pot)
1 liter of organic chicken stock
cook on medium heat for 10-15 minutes

add 1/2 to 2/3rds or so of a loaf of good sourdough (i used ciabatta) bread, stale and chopped into cubes
simmer for 25-30 minutes


allie says hers turned out a bit different than mine, her bread disintegrated, mine was still chunky

so up to you
