Break the bread and put it in the oven for 15 minutes on 175 degrees.
Cut the tomato and place them in a sieve to remove all the juice. Also cut the paprika and place the paprika in the oven or in a grill as well until they start to look brown/black. Put the paprika in a bag until the skin is coming off. Cut the olives and fennel in pieces and add them to the tomato’s.
Make a juice from some of the tomato juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix this with the veggies and add the bread and let it all soak for 1 hour.
