These are the easiest garlic croutons you'll ever make! Ready in just 10 minutes, they are the perfect last minute complement to homemade soups and salads.
Yield 2 cups
3 slices bread
Vegan butter or extra-virgin olive oil
Fine sea salt
Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Spread the oil or butter over both sides of the bread.
Now, sprinkle on a generous amount of garlic powder and a light dusting of salt onto one side of the bread. Press down on it lightly with your fingers, if desired, to help it adhere.
Slice the bread into croutons—about 1/2- to 1-inch pieces.
Place the croutons onto a single layer onto the preheated skillet. Toast for 2 to 3 minutes until lightly golden (watch closely so you don't burn them), and then flip each piece. Toast the other side for 2 to 3 minutes until golden.
Remove from the skillet and serve immediately on top of soup or salad.
