Heat 2 tsp of the olive oil, add the shallot and fry for about 4 minutes over a low heat until soft and translucent.
Add the passata, sweet chilli, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice. Season, then cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, use small heart-shaped pastry cutters to stamp shapes from the bread. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a small frying pan and fry until golden. Drain on a plate lined with kitchen paper.

Top with croutons and serve immediately. The soup will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
