How to make it

- add the vegetable stock, sherry and 1 cup water. Bring to boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Season to taste using the above seasoning.
- Then slice the bread into slices or use ready made croutons...If not using croutons broil your bread using parmesean cheese...use four thick slices...
- This is the best step...put the bread slices or croutons into serving bowl and ladel in the hot soup, sprinkle with cheese and parsley and bon apetite...serve with a great glass of wine and a platter of cheeses that are placed on top of red leaf lettuce with some walnuts and pine nuts surrounding the edge of the platter dish... and
- take it easy while enjoying this yum soup. I think, by the fireplace is nice...it certainly will warm the soul.
