product details


Pour some oil into a deep casserole dish and sauté the onion, basil stems and garlic (which we will remove at the end).
Cut the bread into small cubes, soak in the vegetable stock and then fry with the onion in the casserole dish for 5 minutes.
Pour the tomato passata into the casserole dish and cook for approximately half an hour on a low heat. If the potage starts to look dry, add a little vegetable stock.
The bread is ready when it has the same consistency as a potage.
Add a few basil leaves and a drizzle of olive oil, then stir and serve.
