    and croutons means fried bread crumbs in oil???

    1. Lightly apply butter to whole wheat bread and toast in the oven till crisp. Cut them into small squares and serve as croutons instead of deep frying.

  5. What a great recipe! Just loved it! I did skip the tomato roasting step and bought cans of fire roasted tomatoes. So hearty yet so much healthier than the cream laden versions we find in restaurants.
