The croutons are really the core part of a vegan caesar salad. The other ingredients are just romaine lettuce, some chopped parsley, and vegan parmesan cheese.

And of course you have to have that creamy perfect vegan caesar dressing too, but the base salad is just the croutons, romaine, parsley and vegan parmesan.

So you need perfect croutons, basically.

How to make perfect croutons for a vegan caesar salad

Making your own croutons is super easy. Though of course if you want to go with a store-bought version, this is totally cool too.

But to make them yourself you just need half a loaf of nice sturdy bread, preferably a little on the stale side. Chop it into squares, toss it in some olive oil, dried basil and oregano and a little salt and lay the squares out evenly on a parchment lined tray.

Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes (turning over halfway through) until perfectly crispy. If they’re not super crispy after 15 minutes, leave them in for a little bit longer. You want them nice and crispy so that they hold up in the salad well, and don’t get soggy.

Toss the croutons up in a big bowl with your chopped romaine and parsley, throw in some vegan parmesan, mix up your vegan caesar dressing and you’re ready to serve a deliciously impressive salad.

If you think there are going to be leftovers, then only add dressing to the portions that are being served right away. Once the salad has been dressed it won’t keep well because of the tendency for the croutons to become soggy if you leave them too long.
