Fresh Croutons

Fresh croutons are incredibly easy to make but can make any soup more exciting.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 french loaf, cut into 1cm to 2cm squares
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Use your hands to gently mix all the ingredients together to make sure all the bread has a coating of oil. Don't be too rough or you risk squashing the bread.
  4. Spread out one layer thick on a baking tray.
  5. Roast in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the bread has a nice golden colour.
  6. Serve with a variety of soups.

Makes enough croutons for 2 to 4 bowls of soup.
