Ingredients

  • 1 x garlic bulb
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 x onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 x carrot, thinly sliced
  • 1 x celery stalk, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups tomato passata
  • 3 x slices stale bread, cut into 1.5cm cubes
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 10 x basil leaves, finely sliced

Method

Preheat oven to 180C or 160C fan. Place garlic on a large sheet of foil, drizzle with a little extra oil and wrap to enclose. Roast for 25 mins, until softened. Peel and reserve juices.

Heat 1/3 cup of oil in a large saucepan on medium. Cook onion, carrot and celery for 5 mins, until onion softens. Add passata and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10 mins, until vegetables soften. Add garlic and season to taste. Using a stick blender, blend until smooth.

Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a frying pan on high. Cook bread, tossing occasionally, for 3-4 mins, until crisp. Remove pan from heat, add parmesan and basil and toss to combine.

Scatter soup with crostini and shaved parmesan. Drizzle with a little extra oil. Serve.

  • Luca, I made it and it turned out delicious. I suffer from green leaves disorder :) so I sprinkled it with celery leaves before serving.
