Tomato Bread Stew (Açorda de Tomate)

Para versão Portuguesa clique aqui: “Açorda de Tomate”

"Açorda" is a typical portuguese dish where bread is placed to soak in a broth.  The bread then soaks up the liquid and it is very well mashed. Garlic is a must and usually it is seasoned with coriander. Sometimes poached eggs are added and mixed thoroughly. There are various types of "açorda". The recipe I have for you today is of tomato. It goes great with fried fish.

This recipe was taken from the Thermomix cookbook that came along with it. It’s a Portuguese version “Bimby - As Receitas Essenciais”. The only change I made was to reduce the olive oil from 90g to 60g. I hope you enjoy it!

350g bread
500g water
60g olive oil
1 onion
4 cloves garlic
100g tomato, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Soak the bread in water and set aside. Place olive oil, onion and garlic in the bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 5. Add tomato and set 5 min/varoma/speed 1. Attach the butterfly and then add bread with water. Season to taste and set 7 min/100º/inverted/soft speed. Serve while hot.
