We love adding toppings on desserts. So why don’t adding toppings on other dishes? Esgir Croutons are the special touch we need.
Esgir Croutons are delicious and gluten free, unlike other croutons made with wheat flour, Esgir Croutons are made with chickpea flour, a protein source. They don’t contain colourings or preservatives, and they are toasted, so they aren’t high in fat as most of croutons which are fried, therefore Esgir Croutons are a very healthy choice. Moreover, Esgir croutons don’t contain milk or egg, so they are a suitable option for vegans.
We can choose 5 types of Croutons: Natural Crouton, Garlic and Parsley Crouton, Onion and Pepper Crouton, Cocktail Croutons with oil Sunflower and Cocktail Croutons with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. All of them are crunchy and delicious, we can combine their different flavours with a wide variety of dishes.

The next recipe is original and easy to prepare, it is a delicious option for the hottest days.
Cucumber and yogurt soup
This healthy and refresh soup is typical of the Eastern Mediterranean region. It is very nutritious and quick to prepare. We have chosen Onion and Pepper Croutons for this dish. As we can see in the recipe, garlic is optional, if you don’t want the strong flavour of pure garlic, you can choose the light option of Garlic and Parsley Croutons.

- 4 greek yogurts (125ml)
- Onion and Pepper Esgir Croutons/ Garlic and Parsley Esgir Croutons
