  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and onions and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the cumin and coriander and 1 tablespoon of the chicken broth. Cook until the onions are very soft, about 5 minutes longer. Add the tomatoes and the remaining broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Stir in the bread pieces and the orange zest and cook for 5 minutes longer. Working in 2 batches, place the soup in a food processor and process until smooth. Place the soup in a clean saucepan and stir in the salt and pepper. Warm over low heat until hot. Ladle the soup into 4 bowls and swirl 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil into each one. Serve immediately.
