If necessary, add a pinch of sugar to balance the acidity of the tomatoes.

Put the bread in a small bowl and add 1 cup of hot broth to soften.

Mash the bread well with a wooden spoon.

Add the softened bread and remaining broth to the tomatoes, stirring well to completely dissolve the bread.

Simmer for about 30 minutes.

Add the herbs during the last 5 minutes of cooking.

Pass the soup through the fine blade of a food mill or purée in a food processor and strain.

Put the soup back in the soup pot and correct the seasoning.
