Personal Notes:
You can keep some of the tomatoes and cucumber aside and chop it up to put in the finished soup if you like it less processed.

Croutons:
Cut up bread into cubes, toss lightly with either olive or vegetable oil (the olive oil makes a stronger flavor) sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper. Toast in oven at 350F for 20 minutes turning them often.
