Avocado Toast is is the next best thing to sliced bread, we can all agree on that. Few things can match the simplicity and amount of flavours you can pack onto a perfectly toasted piece of bread. The base of every avocado toast? The bread, of course! Healthy Planet has taken that same piece of perfectly toasted bread and added another level of flavour. Curried mushrooms! Earthy, rich and loaded with flavour, continue the trend of every and anything on toast and show off to your friends and family next time you want a snack! Take a look at the Healthy Planet Curried Mushroom Toast recipe below!
12 ounces sliced mixed mushrooms (button, crimini, maitake)
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
12 tablespoons Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (available at all Healthy Planet Locations)
⅛ teaspoon curry powder (you can add more according to your taste!)
1 large minced garlic clove
2 tablespoons unsalted butter (available at all Healthy Planet Locations)
1 medium shallot, finely sliced
½ teaspoon zest of a lemon
1 ½ cup washed sunflower sprouts
sliced gluten free bread
A standard slice of toasted gluten free bread is always acceptable, but, if you want to get fancy, grab your bread and with a large round baking mold, punch out 12 round slices of bread. Toast the sliced bread until it has a golden brown color. A well toasted, crunchy slice is perfect for catching all the flavour from the hummus and mushrooms!
Check out our Roasted Red Pepper Recipe for instructions on how to create your own, or you can simply go into any Healthy Planet location and pick up one of our favourite Hummus Brands! Any hummus will do for this recipe, we just love the combination of roasted red peppers and curried mushrooms!
Heat a large pan and add your olive oil, unsalted butter, mushrooms, shallots and garlic. Saute for roughly 5 min on high heat before adding your curry powder. You want your mushrooms to brown and absorb all the flavours from the curry, garlic and shallot. Stir occasionally to mix the flavors while evenly coating the mushrooms. Add a pinch of sea salt and ground black pepper to taste. Once you have you sauteed your mushrooms to perfection, add your lemon zest and mix thoroughly. The more you create this dish, the more familiar you will be with what level of flavour you want from the curry. A little goes a long way! Add more curry as you see fit and make it your own! Set aside your mushrooms and let them cool to room temperature.
Now that the main attraction is finished preparing, grab your toasted gluten free bread and swipe 1 tablespoon of roasted red pepper hummus per piece. This will add some creaminess as well as keep your mushrooms firmly in place on top of the bread. After you have swiped all 12 pieces with hummus, start adding your mushrooms! Take 2 tablespoons of mushrooms for each slice. Once you have evenly distributed the mushrooms to the toast, top off with the remainder amongst them. In a separate bowl, wash and then dry your sunflower sprouts, garnish your mushroom toast with the sprouts and you are ready to enjoy! Perfectly served on wooden cutting board or your favourite serving platter! #livelifehealthy
