      crouton is a piece of rebaked bread, often cubed and seasoned. Add Croutons to get texture and flavor to the salad. It is an accompaniment to soups and stew or eaten as a snack food.

      The preparation of croutons is relatively simple. Typically bread cubes are lightly coated in oil or butter are seasoned or flavored for variety) and then baked. Croutons cut into sticks. Some commercial preparations use machinery to sprinkle various seasonings on them. They may be fried lightly in butter or vegetable oil until crisp and brown to give them a buttery flavor and crunchy texture. Add additional cheese to croutons.

      Nearly any type of bread—in a loaf or pre-sliced, with or without crust—may be used to make croutons. Dry or stale bread or leftover bread is usually used instead of fresh bread. Once prepared, the croutons will remain fresh far longer than unprepared bread.

       Also, we can use varieties of squash that have dense, orange flesh, such as butternut or onion squash.

      It is most important to use good chicken stock and season the soup well to bring out the nutty, sweet flavor of the squash. Once you’ve mastered this recipe, you can take the soup in different ways by adding pearl barley, dried pasta, or some chopped smoked bacon. Even the smallest amount of dried porcini made this in a pressure cooker the other day, with really great results – it’s so quick!

      Put a large saucepan on medium heat and pour in a couple of lugs of olive oil. Add the sage leaves and fry for around 30 seconds or until dark green and crisp. Quickly remove them with a slotted spoon to a lined with kitchen paper.

      You’ll use these for sprinkling over at the end. You’ll get a beautifully flavored oil in the pan, so put it back on the heat and throw in your onion, celery, carrot, garlic, rosemary leaves, chili, and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Cook gently for about 10 minutes until the vegetables are sweet and soft. Add the squash and the stock to the pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for around half an hour.
