Satisfying Tomato Soup
https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/satisfying-tomato-soup/
From scratch, chunky style with grilled cheese sandwich

Ingredients

2 teaspoons canola oil
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
1-1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
Minced fresh basil, optional

Directions

In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery; cook and stir until tender, 2-4 minutes. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
Puree soup using an immersion blender. Or cool soup slightly and puree in batches in a blender; return to pan and heat through. If desired, top with fresh minced basil. Freeze option: Freeze cooled soup in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary.

Grilled Cheese Croutons:

For croutons that won't immediately soak up all the soup, use day-old bread and cook it slower than normal so you end up with a crispy, drier sandwich.

Butter one side of two slices of day-old, hearty bread. Place one slice in a skillet over medium-low heat; top with your favorite cheese slices. Top with the second slice, butter side up, and cook until dark golden brown, 4-5 minutes. Flip and cook another 4-5 minutes. Remove and cut into cubes.
