Croutons – a yummy addition to soup (especially if home made!) – 93 calories

Version 2Since I have cut back on bread, I may still occasionally have half a slice of seeded bread made into croutons. Home made croutons are so easy and quick to make! Don’t waste your money on ready made….

Preparation Time: 2 mins

Cooking Time: 5 mins

Serves: 2

Calories per serving: 93.4

Ingredients

Bread, Granary, Wholemeal, Seeded, Medium Sliced -1 Slice/44g

Butter, Salted – 5g

Olive Oil -1 Tsp/5ml

Mixed Herbs – ¼ Tsp/1.25g

Method

Cut the slice of bread into 1cm cubes.

Heat the oil and butter over a medium heat and when sizzling, add the bread cubes.

Cook for around 5 minutes, turning over as they brown – don’t allow to burn, they should be crisp and golden.

Add the herbs at the end of cooking time.
