About this recipe: Cream of tomato soup with fresh bread - I love them both! For those counting calories, you can use milk instead of cream, or a mixture of both. Fresh basil tastes even better, of course, but dried basil is fine too. This soup also freezes very well.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
