Yummy Fall Tomato Soup

Since the fall season has begun I've been addicted to Panera's Tomato Soup. I wanted to make something equally as yummy for home and I think this recipe is spot on. Plus, this recipe doesn't have HFCS as the Panera version does. It's super easy and fast. I made this batch with Vegetable broth and I embellished it a bit with a tad of half & half just to give it some body. That's your call. I also toasted one piece of Ezekiel bread in the toaster oven and cut it into croutons. YUM
