Who doesn’t love a good bread bowl filled with soup? In my opinion there’s nothing more cosy to eat in the Winter months than soup, and what a bonus if you can eat the bowl too! I haven’t seen this done much in England but it seems to be a tradition that stems from North America, which began as a way of using up slightly old/tough bread. The idea is that the soup softens it and so it becomes edible and so there’s no need to throw any bread away. Ingenious, in my opinion!
Anyhow, I recently had a craving for bread bowls and thought it would be a fun and easy meal idea for us as well as the kids! I wasn’t wrong – they loved it! Seeing as I wasn’t baking my own bread it couldn’t have been easier…
I found round loaves at the shop,
Cut them in half and hollowed them out,
Let them sit out for a while to harden off a bit (so they aren’t too soft and therefore don’t leak),
…and filled them with soup! Voila!
Why not give it a try, it’s a bit of fun and the kids will love the novelty of it!
