1 slice bread that is not made with an enriched flour, such as an organic multigrain oat bread
1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon parsley
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cut bread into cubes. Melt butter and mix with parsley and garlic powder. Drizzle butter mixture over the bread cubes and stir. Bake for 20 minutes or until crisp. When cool, put croutons on top of a salad or a cup of soup. Make sure to eat croutons with a good source of protein. For example: put nuts, seeds, or hard boiled eggs on the salad; put croutons on top of a soup made with cheese; or have with a glass of milk.
