A BIG HIGH FIVE TO CROUTONS – AS THESE CAN INSTANTLY ADD SOME CRUNCH AND FULLNESS TO ANY DISH.
TIP: Make a big batch at the beginning of the week, then store these in an air tight jar which will last you several days.
Let’s start with the these delicious sweet ones, which are Honey and Coconut Croutons, these you can sprinkle on top of your yoghurt, or add to a smoothie, even add some crunch to ice cream or sorbet.
Then you can give your savoury croutons an injection of extra goodness by adding the superfood that is beetroot , these brighten up any salad and give more taste and a great crunch, these also work well in soups and are great with scrambled eggs.
Plus you can simply just have them to accompany any snack, so this is why croutons are a great healthy food accessory and you can watch my full video on how to make these by clicking down below on the YouTube video, but in short it is simply, mixing your cubed bread with whatever flavour you chose, and in a bowl making sure your bread pieces are coated evenly, then on a baking tray place them evenly, and simply at about 400 degrees cook for about 8 minutes or until, golden and crispy, then remove allow to cool then place in an air tight container and these will last you for a few days.
