Easy Garlic Croutons (Vegan)
- Half a loaf of old baguette
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ⅔ tsp dried parsley
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Pinch of black pepper
- Preheat oven to 300F – a toaster oven is the perfect size.
- In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, using your hands, toss well so that everything is well incorporated into the bread.
- Spread the bread on a sheet pan, laying them flat with some space in between. Bake the bread cubes for about 10 - 15 minutes, or until slightly golden brown and crisp. Older bread will brown faster than fresher bread. Keep an eye on this job to make sure it doesn’t burn.
