My new Soup! Tue, 01/31/12 5:19 PM (permalink)
Chicken Bruschetta Soup
The jar of the Bruschetta they sell at Costco, I use 3
an onion thinly sliced then chopped, I use 3
A 49 oz can of Chicken broth, I use 6
Some additional chicken granuels, for the salt
oregano, a few pinches
Thyme
Boneless skinless ckicken breasts cooked on the Flat Top, cut up, I used 10 lbs.
Simmer, adjust seasonings if needed, you shouldn't need.
Oh, a little Parmesean, not too much, the Bruschetta is seriously tasty
This is seriously good soup

      Just out of curiority, as bruschetta is a toasted bread, how do you get it in a jar for soup?

        You can buy the sauce in a jar to put on your bread.  I had some a couple of weeks ago  and it was quite good.

          Ah, but what you put on the bruschetta isn't bruschetta.

              Sounds like a good soup. I would serve it in a bread bowl, and then perhaps it could live up to its name.....

                Not at all, at least the stuff at Costco isn't.

                  Michael Bruschetta is an Italian Salsa, so to speak, that goes on top of toasted bread. There are a number of recipes for it, all call for bread, but I refer to the tomato toppings as Bruschetta, which is what I use. It's my recipe, I'll call it what I want to, naah, naah, naah , na!

                    You certainly may call it whatever you wish. However ...
                     
                    Bruschetta: From the Italian word 'bruscare' meaning ‘to roast over coals‘. The thin slices of this traditional garlic bread are made by rubbing slices of toasted bread with garlic cloves, then drizzling the bread with extra-virgin olive oil. The bread is salted and peppered, then heated and served warm.
                     
                    Bruschetta: thick slices of bread grilled, rubbed with garlic, drizzled with olive oil, often topped with tomatoes and herbs, and usually served as an appetizer.
                     
                    Bruschetta: an Italian appetizer recipe made from toasted crusty
                    bread rubbed with garlic.

                          This thread reminds me of one of the most memorable meals that I ever had. I was about eight years old . I was sent across the street to an Italian neighbor's house to take then some cucumbers that my grandfather had picked from our garden.
                           
                          Mrs. Poaini invited me in and told me to sit and have breakfast with them. I, of course, accepted and sat down at the kitchen table with her and her husband. The kitchen smelled wonderful. She put a bowl of eggs scrambled with green peppers down and then handed me a plate with toasted bread and showed me how to rub garlic on it and then instructed me to put olive oil and salt on it.  I asked what it was and her husband said "This is Italian toast". I loved it They both smiled at me and the best part now comes. He got up and got a small tumbler and poured me some of his homemade red wine.
                           
                          This was my first introduction to bruschetta!

                                Chewingthfat, the nonprofit my wife is involved with has a fundraiser called The Soup Challenge. It benefits area animal rescue groups. If you were to enter a soup in such an event, what soup would be your winning recipe.

                                                      From the description, that soup sounds great! 
                                                       
                                                      Whether the "bruschetta" is the bread or the topping, I learned something new a few years ago.   I had always pronounced it  "brew-sheh-tuh".  Then, a few years ago, I learned that the real (Italian) pronunciation is "brew-skeh-tuh". 
                                                      The "sch" in bruschetta gets an "sk" pronunciation .

                                                          Also... you could toast up some Italian bread cubes, or maybe a round,  and float them/it on top, maybe sprinkle a little cheese on top and run the bowl under the broiler right before serving. Make it more bruschetta-y.
                                                           
                                                          Edit: I'm making this soup today. I'll cut the recipe by 2/3, using one jar of bruschetta topping (they're 39oz, by the Costco website). I plan to toss in some orzo, and maybe do the bread thing. Maybe with buffalo mozzarella, or sharp provolone, or both, or whatever, maybe not.
