Homemade croutons


  1. Tear kale into bite size pieces and massage with oil and salt until wilted. 
  2. Add Romaine, chickpeas, croutons and dressing. Mix well and enjoy!

Homemade croutons:

  1. Cut bread into cubes and put them in a mixing bowl.
  2. Pour 3 tbsp of oil over cubes and stir.  
  3. Add the spices to the mixing bowl.
  4. Stir to combine your bread, oil and seasonings completely.
  5. Pour the seasoned bread mixture into the air fryer basket — or onto your air fryer tray!
  6. Air fry your croutons for 6 to 8 minutes at 400 degrees or until crunchy. Be sure to stir the croutons once or twice during cooking to keep them from sticking or burning.

Please note: If you are making your croutons in the oven vs. the air fryer – bake at 350 for 30-35  minutes (or until crunchy). Stir half way through.
