As a food blogger testing and retesting a recipe is very important before sharing, and sometimes there are leftovers, lots of leftovers. So after making the Vegan Dressing with Barley, I had some leftover bread and herbs, so I turned that bread into these tasty croutons.
The aroma of the herbs permeated the house drawing my daughter the taste-tester to the kitchen, before I knew it half the pan was gone. "These make a great snack", were her words.
What's so great about this recipe is, it's super easy and quick!
If you don't have any old bread around, go buy a loaf of french bread, wait a day or two and give this recipe a try. You might just give up boxed croutons forever.
Impress your family and friends, heck, impress yourself. Give it a try!
