Make the cheesy toasted bread

Preheat grill or skillet to medium-high. Toast the bread on both sides and flatten it with a spatula.

Sprinkle bread with cheese on one side and grill until melted. Turn bread with cheese on the bottom part and grill until cheese is crispy.

 Cut heart shapes using a cookie cutter (or any shape you like). Or just cut the toast in small squares with a knife to save time.

This is the perfect soup for two since it’s hearty but healthy! Any leftovers can be used for lunch the next day or even freeze it for when you don’t have time to cook.

But I promise you that you won’t have much leftover since you’ll want to devour it all at once!
