These delicious vegan homemade sourdough croutons with garlic & Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat are amazing! They rock in soups, salads, stuffing, casseroles, and more.

If you’re anything like me and adore the rich crispy taste of buttery croutons, you’re going to love this vegan croutons recipe made with Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat sourdough bread.

It packs more flavor and nutrients than prepackaged croutons hands down.

That’s because Tartary, also known as HTB, is an exceptional seed. Long a mainstay of Asia and other parts of the world, it was developed here in the US after Dr. Jeffrey Bland and other scientists learned how nutrient-dense it is.

It rocks four bioactive compounds—rutin, quercetin, luteolin, and hesperidin—and a powerhouse free-radical scavenger that’s considered pretty rare (2-HOBA). It also stacks vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, and immense prebiotics for your gut.

This recipe is organic, vegan, and gluten-free.

Homemade sourdough HTB croutons are the best.

I’m a huge fan of Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat these days because it’s literally one of the most nutrient-dense plants on Earth. That’s why it’s key to make your own bread using the flour so your croutons are rich.

Not to mention once you get the starter going, you can keep it going for infinite loaves. I tell you how to do it in the bread recipe.

If you’re super busy, you can always grab a starter here.

  • Preheat oven on 375.
  • Slice the bread into cubes.
  • Chop the garlic cloves.
  • Saute the olive oil, Earth Balance, herbs, and garlic in saucepan on low only until butter is melted.
  • Spread the bread evenly on large pan with parchment paper or directly on cast iron skillet.
  • Baste generously with the sauce.
  • Bake until crispy but still tender for 15-25 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with nutritional yeast and fresh minced garlic when cooled.


Placing the croutons directly on a seasoned cast iron skillet is my go-to. The sauce and herbs flavor the pan for something afterwards.
