  5. Season to taste and serve with prepared croutons.
  6. To prepare the croutons, brush the crusts of the bread and 2 slices extra with some olive oil.
  7. Then either tear up or cut the bread up into small chunks.
  8. Place the bread chunks onto a baking sheet and sprinkle with some salt and oregano.

  10. Serve with the soup.

Chefs Tip: If you have 1 or two garlic cloves to spare at home, finely chop it and add it to some olive oil and brush the bread slices before tearing them up to make the croutons.
