“ Sometimes, the most delicious things in life are utterly uncomplicated. This rustic Portuguese bread soup is simple, hearty, and filling. Vijay, Recipe Hunter ”
Sometimes the simplest foods in life are the most delicious and this bread soup is proof. Throughout the Mediterranean and extending into Spain and Portugal, it’s very common to thicken and “beef up” soup with leftover bread for a hearty, filling, and satisfying meal. This Portuguese version slow simmers bread with onions, garlic, tomatoes, and spices until the soup becomes thick and velvety. At the end, fresh shrimp are added and cooked until perfectly tender.
