The diced tomatoes add a nice texture and freshness to this easy kicked-up tomato soup, but you can definitely leave them out. Let’s face it, at least here in the mid-west US good fresh tomatoes are impossible to find this time of year.

I like a little crunch to my soup to give it even more texture, so I added a few homemade croutons. Optional, but yummy.

Also try my creamy cheese and tomato soup.
