These tasty homemade croutons make every soup special or add an extra crunch to your salad. The recipe is perfect if you want to use up some stale bread. You can get creative with the type of bread you use and the seasoning. Try to make some sweet croutons with butter, honey and cinnamon for example. These homemade croutons also freeze well, so you can prepare a big batch and keep them on hand for your next meal.
2 slices of whole grain bread
3 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic glove
Cut the bread into small cubes. Transfer them into a bowl and add the olive oil.
Use the flat side of your knife to crush the garlic. This makes the peel come of easier. Chop the garlic finely and add it to the bowl. Sprinkle everything with salt and stir well.
Heat a frying pan and add the bread cubes and garlic from the bowl once it is hot. Stir occasionally to make sure all sides get crunchy.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the croutons to a soup or salad. Enjoy!
