Recipe of the Week!

December 9, 2009

Delicious, flavorful, tasty…that about sums up this week’s concoction, courtesy of the Hannaford Supermarket’s magazine.  This apparently is a traditional Portuguese dish.  It takes about an hour in total time, but it’s well worth it.  Enjoy!

Roasted Garlic and Bread Soup with Chorizo

(serves 4)

1 large onion, sliced thin

½ lb. chorizo sausage, cut into ½ inch cubes

6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1 tbsp. olive oil

½ tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

2 cups day-old baguette or crusty bread, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

4 cups chicken stock or broth

½ cup finely chopped scallions, white and green parts

Preheat oven to 425. In a 9×13″ pan, mix onion, chorizo, garlic, oil, salt and pepper. Place on middle rack and roast for 15 minutes. Add bread, stir well, and roast another 5 minutes. Add broth, stir well, roast another 20 minutes. If there are any larger pieces of bread, mash them up slightly using back of spoon. Serve hot, each bowl topped with sprinkled scallions.
