It’s kind of hard to make a Caesar Salad without croutons. I’ve tried…it comes out looking like a sad bowl of romaine lettuce. Not a Caesar Salad at all.
So when B wanted a true Caesar Salad this weekend, I put my thinking cap on and came up with this recipe for Garlic & Parm Croutons.
There’s no reason to bend your diet for gluten & dairy filled croutons when you get that hankering for Caesar Salad. Simply make a batch of these awesome croutons and you can thank me later.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Slice the bread into ¾ inch cubes. Set aside.
Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet. Remove from heat. Stir in the nutritional yeast and garlic powder.
Mix the bread cubes into the skillet, stir until the cubes are coated with the coconut oil mixture.
Spread the bread cubes over a shallow baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Cool and enjoy!
