Artisan Sourdough White

£4.50

A superb example of a crusty sourdough loaf.   Sourdough is a naturally leavened bread which uses a ‘starter’ in place of commercial yeast to rise.  The starter is a fermented flour and water mixture that contains wild yeast and good bacteria. This also produces the tangy flavour and slightly chewy texture you’ll find in sourdough.

Sourdough croutons

Ingredients

  • 200240 g  1-inch cubed bread
  • 3045 g olive oil (23 tbsp.)
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 8 g (2 heaped tbsp.) chopped fresh dill, plus more to taste
  • Ground Parmesan or Pecorino cheese, to taste
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper

Notes & Substitutions

The flavour of fresh dill does not overpower in this dish. It’s delicious. Use chopped fresh parsley as a substitute or a combo of both.


Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F (180 C).
  2. Evenly arrange the bread cubes on a sheet pan in one single layer. Drizzle with some of the olive oil to coat. Sprinkle with garlic powder, fresh dill, and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Toss gently with your hands, adding more olive oil as needed (if it’s too dry), until the bread is nicely coated.
  4. Bake on the centre rack for 20-30 minutes, checking at the 15-minute mark- give it a stir. The croutons are ready when they are crisp and golden brown; total bake time will vary based on size.
  5. Once completely cool, store in an air tight container for up to 1 week.
