the garnish

You can garnish this creamy potato soup with whatever you like. I like to garnish mine with chives, but you could also use thinly sliced green onions, chopped fresh herbs, or gluten-free herb croutons.


How to make gluten-free herb croutons?

(serves 4 – 6)

  1. Drizzle about 1/4 cup of olive oil over a rimmed baking sheet. Add two tablespoons of your choice of herbs and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Using your hands, mix the oil with the seasoning.
  3. Cut three slices of gluten-free stale bread into small cubes and add them to the seasoned oil. Then, using your hands, coat the cubes.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 F until the croutons are golden. 
  5. They brown very quickly, so keep an eye on them. It should take only a few minutes, shaking the pan halfway to crisp the croutons all over.
