Easy Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese Croutons

Although this soup is not my own, it was one of our favorite's in our family. I got the recipe from the Food Network Magazine. I have used some different ingredients but still great tasting. 

Ingredients needed:

3 tablespoons of olive oil
3 cups yellow onion, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
4 cups veggie broth, they use chicken broth
1 can crushed tomatoes, I buy the organic one
1/2 cup orzo
1/2 cup of heavy cream

Saute onions and garlic.
In big pan place your broth and tomatoes. 
Cook orzo in another pan. 
When finished with above add all ingredients together including the heavy cream and bring to boil for 10 minutes and then serve with Grilled Cheese Croutons. 

We don't have a panini grill so we just make regular grilled cheese made with Gruyere Cheese which has an awesome light hickory smoke taste to it. And we add it to our soup. A great healthy meal for you and your family.

I have never even thought of making my own croutons. I'm starting to cook a bit more, and definitely want to give these a try! I actually just got a new Panini Press for my birthday too :D

Never thought of making croutons out of the sandwich. I'm not a fan of tomato soup but I do love grilled cheese!
