Jamie Oliver’s Bread and Tomato Soup #SundaySupper

When I first heard about this Celebrity Chef Inspired #SundaySupper hosted by Tammi from Momma’s Meals I had one chef from many possibles take a quick lead as my pick.
You guessed it, The Naked Chef, Jamie Oliver . Jamie got his reputation as The Naked Chef because he would strip food down the its bare essentials. Today, we call this cooking “Clean Eating”.
This simple yet delicious soup does just that; it gets down to just the flavor without adding unnecessary ingredients.
Give it a try! Go naked! I’ll bet you will love it!
