Try to use a wine in your recipe that you would drink with your meal so that they compliment each other.
If you don’t have garlic flavored croutons you can totally make your own by toasting bread that you have at home. Take untoasted bread and put butter on it and then sprinkle either garlic powder or even better if you have either minced garlic or a garlic bulb that you can rub all over it then just stick it in the oven. Then you can just press it in the bottom of the bowl. Then there ya go, instant crouton.
