This is another recipe from Jamie’s Dinners cookbook. I really love this book and it’s full of great recipes that I just want to try.
I love soups and there is nothing more comforting in this really cold weather than sitting down to a nice bowl of tasty soup with some really good bread with lots of butter on it.
We have a really great bakery that’s in the Belconnen markets that has baguettes to die for and really good sourdough. If I am making a soup I always make sure that I get some of this bread.
I have never seen a recipe with a hardboiled egg grated into the soup, but it really works. It adds a nice richness to the dish instead of adding cream or sour cream. I also managed to get some pancetta from Barossa Fine Foods which was delicious in the soup. I used the whole package too, cause I love a good bit of protein in soups
I think next time I might try it with a couple of tins of tomatoes in place of the fresh tomatoes, as I love the flavour of really good tinned tomatoes in soup.
