2013-02-27 - VI Olive Croutons - 0011

So I finally made those Olive Croutons from Vegan Italiano and HOLY SHIT ARE THEY GOOD! So good, in fact, that I’ve already dispensed with the salad altogether. That’s right, I’m eating these suckers like popcorn, by the fistful. No regrets. Especially not since I overbought Italian bread last week and it was either this or rock-hard sammies.

I did have a little trouble getting the Kalamata olives to adhere to the bread. Instead of “tos[sing] well to thoroughly coat” (yeah right!) I rubbed the topping in by hand. Much better!

With a few tweaks – namely, more olive oil – I bet this would make a damn fine topping for baked Italian bread. Filing that one away for future use.
