Air Fryer Croutons
Try our EASY Air Fryer Croutons
In the realm of bread, sourdough is king. What makes sourdough different is it’s leavened (aka raised) by fermenting flour and water rather than using yeast. Fermentation releases the B vitamins in the bread and boosts its gut-friendly prebiotic and probiotic properties — all of which aids digestion. Most sourdough bread is made with whole grains, which have more fiber and protein. Given its numerous benefits and its tangy flavor, sourdough should never go to waste. Its airy structure makes particularly good croutons. These healthy air fryer croutons add crunch and flavor to fresh green salads, Caesar salads and creamy soups. As a little extra something to enjoy all week, they’re worth making!
