The smartest tomato soup in the world. Originally once a poor person’s food, but actually a delicious treat! A classic of Tuscan cuisine, a real quick recipe for which you do not need much: The tomatoes that grow in the garden in front of the house, a little olive oil, stale bread, maybe a tiny bit of basil … Today, a good “pappa” has unfortunately become rare, because in the restaurants they hardly dare to put a little something so simple on the table …

Remove the calyxes from the tomatoes. Cut the fruits in half, melt them in hot oil in a soup pot, adding the coarsely chopped garlic, season with salt and season with pepper. Add the herb stalks – pluck off half of the leaves and put them aside – together with the bread to the tomatoes. Pour enough water to cover everything together flat. Simmer gently for about 20 minutes. Taste, take out the herb stems and the tomato skins, mix in the remaining kitchen herbs coarsely chopped instead. Serve drizzled with a drizzle of fresh olive oil.

Our tip: If you like to cook with fresh herbs, it is best to get kitchen herbs in pots – so you always have everything ready!
