serves 6 as a garnish
4 slices of bread, cut into 1/3″ thick cubes (i suggest something dark and whole-grain for extra flavor)
1 teaspoon each minced fresh rosemary, thyme, oregano, and tarragon (or any and all herbs you have on hand)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 cup olive oil
1. preheat oven to 300°f.
2. toss bread cubes in a bowl with the olive oil, herbs, and salt. spread evenly on a foil-lined baking sheet.
3. bake for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and hard.
4. if you have leftover croutons, keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. they are also delicious in salads!
