Seven soups every Saturday: bread soup recipes
A leftover half of a baguette, gone stale a few days ago, begs to be used, and only two solutions come to mind: pulverize it into breadcrumbs, or reincarnate it as a thickener for soup. Guess which choice I would make? For a frugal cook, bread soups are the ultimate waste-not-want-not. What's even better is the magic that happens when stale bread loses its natural moisture, and that moisture is replaced by flavored broth. The bread falls apart into the soup, where it absorbs all of the spice and seasonings of the soup liquid. If you don't have stale bread on hand, toast some fresh bread to dry it out.
