  1. Thinly slice the green onions keeping the light green and white slices separate from the dark green slices. Melt the butter in a medium soup pot and add the white and light green onions along with the minced garlic. Saute until all becomes soft and fragrant.
  2. Stir in the bread cubes and add the chicken broth, salt and pepper. Bring up to a boil and then down to a simmer. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
