Home-Made Croutons

On Tuesday we had a chicken caesar salad for dinner, a really huge one. It was very refreshing, and I want to talk about the croutons.

We made our own croutons. I had never done this before and didn’t really know how to go about it, but they turned out great. We even used the bread I made the other day, which gave us even more flavourful croutons in our caesar salad. Unfortunately I’ve been a bit slow writing this post so I don’t have a photo of the croutons, (they’re all gone), but fear not, we’ll be doing this every time we need croutons, so I’ll post photos next time.

So, how did I do it? I cut the bread into crouton-sized chunks, sprinkled them with powdered garlic, chili powder, pepper, and a bit of salt, then poured on some olive oil. I mixed all of that up to evenly spread the flavours and oil around, then put it all on a cookie sheet in the oven t 400 degrees fahrenheit and kept checking on them and mixing them around. When they were crispy they were done.

  • What is Choices That Matter?

    I'm a guy named John, and I do most of the writing around here. I went from a really active lifestyle to a really inactive lifestyle very quickly and my body is noticing. On top of that I'm worried about what's happening to our planet, so, I'm trying to do something about it.

    For Christmas I received the book Food Matters, which I found very interesting and inspired me to start changing. Check out my first post for the beginning of the story.
