Easy Crouton Recipe

I was making zucchini soup the other night and while waiting for it to cook I suddenly felt the urge to make some garlic croutons to go with it. I love making croutons as they make a dish crunchier, yummier and more visually appealing. So here is my quick and easy crouton recipe that uses pantry staples! These are so delicious that I would highly recommend making a double batch just so you can eat them while serving dinner. Have a nice day :)

serves 4 

   1 1/2 cups wholemeal bread sliced into small squares
   1 clove garlic, minced
   1 tablespoon olive oil
   1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely sliced
   sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper

  1. Carefully toss all ingredients in a bowl until bread squares are evenly coated.
  2. In a pan on high heat, toss croutons until browned and crunchy on each side.

  • To prevent sticking, you can spray oil the pan first before tossing the croutons.
  • Feel free to use spray oil instead of the 1 tablespoon of olive oil to reduce your oil intake.
  • Add any of your favourite fresh herbs. You could use parsley, basil, sage etc...
  • Add more garlic if you want more of a garlic-y zing.
  • You can use white bread if desired.


  1. Garlic Croutons to go with Hot and Sweet Sauce was best of my family's snack this weekend :D

  2. All I can say is GARLIC!!! Can't wait to try this - hopefully on the weekend. Much better than the ones my mum used to make with yucky old bacon bits!
