Ingredients

  • 6-8 medium very ripe tomatoes
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 small shallot
  • 3 oz stale dinner bread
  • 1/3-1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1-2 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Toppings (optional)

  • olive oil
  • fried croutons

  • diced hard boiled eggs
  • chopped fresh herbs, such as basil or parsley

Instructions

  • Core and roughly chop tomatoes. Add them along with garlic and shallot to blender and puree until smooth.
  • Add bread. If the bread is dry, let it soak in the puree for a few minutes. Then puree again until smooth.
  • With the blender running, pour in the olive oil. Taste after adding 1/3 cup and add the rest if needed.
  • Now add sherry vinegar, salt, and pepper to taste and blend in.
  • Move the soup to a carafe or pitcher, cover the top, and put it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to one day.

Notes
