DifficultyBeginner
Prep Time10 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time20 mins

 1 half loaf of organic bread (any kind except Spelt Raisin)
 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
 2 tbsp crushed garlic
 2 tsp spices (basil, parsley, rosemary, oregano etc.)
 salt and pepper to taste

1

Preheat Oven to 425 F.

2

Slice the bread into even shaped cubes. (An easy way to do this is to turn the half-loaf on its side, and make 3 vertical cuts, and then 3 horizontal cuts.)

3

Place the bread cubes into a large mixing bowl and add remaining ingredients. Toss the mixture gently, but thoroughly with salad tongs.

4

Spread the bread cubes evenly across a non-stick baking pan, or a baking pan lined with tin foil. Bake the croutons for 10 minutes, or until the croutons have darkened slightly.

5

Remove from oven, and allow them to cool on the countertop. Seal them in an air-tight container or bag.

6

*To make a lower fat version, omit the olive oil, and rub the bread cubes with the crushed garlic.
