Recipe Ingredients for Italian Bread & Cheese Soup

1 tbsp olive oil
5 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups vegetable broth
4 oz cheddar cheese
4 slices whole wheat bread

Recipe Directions for Italian Bread & Cheese Soup

  1. In a soup pot, warm the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook until just golden, not brown. Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Meanwhile, grate the cheese (about 2 cupes).

  2. When you're ready to serve the soup, toast the bread. Break each slice of toast into bite-sized pieces and place in individual soup bowls. Cover with about 1/2 cup of cheese. Sprinkle with basil or parsley and pepper (opt). Ladle a cup of hot broth over the bread and cheese in each bowl and serve at once.
