    So delish and I made it in the beginning of December. Imagine if I used end of summer tomatoes!!!

    I made this with a huge bowl of fresh summer tomatoes and it was delicious. The croutons were essential.

    Hold back a cup of chicken stock and add it as needed to adjust the consistency. With the tomatoes I used, 3 cups was far too much.

    Crunchy, parmesan croutons take the place of a grilled cheese sandwich here, and they are a delicious topping on the soup along with some fresh basil.
