Home 9 Basic Dough 9 How To Make Soup Bowls Out Of Bread

Soup bowls made of bread.

The obvious perk here is that you do not have to do the washing up after your meal because you can eat the bowl. This recipe makes 2 large bowls. You can divide the dough into smaller pieces to make more smaller ones. To be fair this bread is great just as bread. You do not have to turn it into soup bowls. It can be eaten just like that. 

Check out the basic dough page where you will find a lot more simple, no-fuss breads.
