Spicy Tomato Garden Soup

Fall is here.  It is soup time.  If you are tired of the same tomato soup recipe, here is one with a kick.  It is made nutritious with the addition of all the vegetables you would like to put to use in your fridge.  This is a comforting soup that will make you say, whew but good.  The balsamic vinegar gives it an additional dimension and so does the cumin which you can skip if you are not into it.  This is a good dunking vehicle for crusty bread so if you prefer to dip than slurp you can do that too.  If you want it more soupy and creamy add more milk.
