3. Heat broiler. Spread bread slices onto a baking sheet; toast under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes per side (or use a toaster). Set aside. Place six oven-proof bowls or crocks onto baking sheet. Divide soup evenly among bowls (about a cup in each).

4. Use a vegetable peeler or cheese plane to thinly slice pieces of cheese. Place slice of toast on each serving of soup, top with cheese. Heat under broiler for 3 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Carefully remove from oven and serve warm.

Note: Try reduced-sodium broth, if desired.
