Tomato Soup with Bread Chips/Juha od rajčica sa čipsom od kruha

In my childhood tomato soup was on the table at least once a week, it was certainly one of our favorite soup. Maybe because it was so simple and fast to prepare and was still very delicious, or maybe because our moms were preparing lots of homemade tomato juice for winter….so we did enjoy always fresh and homemade tomato soup and tomato sauce with mash potato. I just love those beautiful and smelly memories from childhood :)….today, my soup have more ingredients, almost all of them are tomatoes, but all kind, fresh, canned tomato, juice, concentrate….I did pimp up my soup with homemade bread chip that is perfect opportunity to use your old bred….and of course…tomato soup without crème fraiche is no tomato soup….enjoy….

-Croatian Version-

Juha od rajčica ili kako smo je mi zvali paradajz juha, bila je na stolu barem jednom tjedno. Jedna od najomiljenijih juha što zbog svoje jednostavnosti pripreme, ali i zbog toga jer su naše mame same pripremale zimnicu pa uz to i nekoliko desetaka litara soka od rajčica upravo za juhu i umak od rajčica koji je najčešće išao uz pire od krumpira, a ako je bila i nedjelja onda i uz dodatak mesnih okruglica :). Ah ta lijepa, mirisna sjećanja iz djetinjstva….moja juha ima malo više sastojaka, odnosno rajčica u raznim konzistentnim stanjima, od koncentrata, soka, svježih rajčica do komadića iz konzerve…..obogatila sam je čipsom od kruha koji vrlo brzo i jednostavno možete napraviti kod kuće od viška kruha..i naravno, bez točkica ili žlice vrhnja nije to ta juha iz djetinjstva…i zato dodajem točku na i u obliku vrhnja….dobar tek ….
