Gluten Free Croutons

Gluten Free Croutons are so easy to make at home. Really easy. When I first went gluten free I missed the crunch of croutons on my salad. And the store bought croutons I bought, well we don’t even want to talk about those. Tasted like cardboard. Not that I have ever tasted cardboard, but you get the idea. They were bad.

Now my husband is not gluten free, so he could freely eat traditional tabouli, but except for the occasional dessert or baked good, I pretty much cook gluten free so that the whole family can enjoy the same things. So, tabouli […]
