Another hit on the homestead, we love this soup!! It’s a bit of a riff on our favorite Low Sodium 5 Ingredient Tomato Sauce, which we make weekly (not even kidding) on top of fresh pastas, butternut squash, or mushroom ravioli.  Add your favorite crusty dried out bread, and you have a fantastic soup that is great for a cozy night in.

We always have a loaf of bread on the counter (I make my easy no knead bread weekly!), so this is a great recipe to use when it’s a bit past it’s prime. This tomato soup with stale bread also features my favorite pantry staples: canned tomatoes!  I always keep some on hand, so when I have extra bread this soup is my go-to lunch for the week.

This Vegan Pappa Al Pomodoro Recipe Is:

  • Bright
  • Fresh
  • Creamy
  • Loaded with Vegetables
  • Flavorful
  • Comforting
  • A Great Recipe for Stale Bread
  • Vegan, Vegetarian, and can be Gluten Free (if using GF bread!)

Recipes with Stale Bread for a No-Waste Meal!

I’m all about saving, reusing, or repurposing as much as I can in my kitchen. This pappa al pomodoro soup is the perfect recipe to repurpose something you may be tempted to throw out. Instead of tossing stale bread in the compost or garbage, you can repurpose it into a delicious and flavorful dinner.  I’m all about saving anything I can from my kitchen, and this soupis a great way to avoid letting leftovers go to waste!

 Grow Fresh Basil in Your Kitchen All Year Long

We got this great 6-Pod Aerogarden which is fantastic for growing herbs in the winter.  We actually got it when we lived in a smaller apartment, but even now that we own an acreage we still use it year-round!  I love growing herbs on my countertop like fresh basil, dill, mint, sage, thyme, parsley, and lemon balm. It uses LED lights and water, so no messy soil needed – you can have fresh herbs at your fingertips any time. I love picking a few springs of parsley to chop on pastas, adding basil leaves to soups, and tossing some dill in with my pasta salads. This Aerogarden is a great gift for anyone who would like fresh herbs… no big kitchen or green thumb required!

How Do I Make This Soup?

  1. In a large stock pot, heat the olive oil over low heat. Add the onion, garlic and sauté for 5 minutes until soft. Then add the carrots and celery, and sauté for 10 more minutes.
  2. Add the cubed bread to the pot, and sauté for an additional 5 minutes until bread begins to brown.
  3. To the Soup pot, add the tomatoes, spinach, vegetable stock, white wine and remainder of spices to the pot and bring to a boil. Simmer uncovered for 45 minutes. Whisk the soup roughly for a few minutes (or pulse with an immersion blender for a few seconds) and enjoy with a drizzle of olive oil before serving.
