Bertouchi's Soup
From: Fido, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Comments: Very easy to prepare soup and quite a surprising result.
Full of taste, this soup is quick to prepare; its presentation and its new taste will impress your friends.
This recipe was inspired from a soup I tried at the Bertouchi restaurant in Toronto's Little Italy! Thanks to the Chef for the inspiration and bravo for his talent!
The tomato and grilled garlic taste will surprise many!!!
