A great way to use up stale bread, this hearty, warming soup is an authentic Tuscan recipe. Tomatoes play a big role in Tuscan cuisine, so we’ve opted for fresh rather than canned tomatoes in this tomato soup recipe. You can make your own chicken (or vegetable) stock or use store-bought; either way, you’ll be serving up a beautiful rich, flavoursome soup.
