Mushrooms & Garlic
I used shiitake mushrooms for this recipe, which was a bit of a splurge in comparison to standard mushrooms. I love the texture and flavour of them but you could definitely opt for button mushrooms, chestnut mushrooms or whichever mushrooms you can get your hands on.
Partner with garlic and to me, there’s nothing better than a garlicky, browned mushroom.
Low Fat Cream Cheese
The contrast of the salty, garlicky mushrooms on a bed of cream cheese is so so good. I use low fat cream cheese here, as we use rapeseed oil to fry the mushrooms and butter to toast the bread so this helps to keep the calories a little lower.
No doubt the best bread to pan-fry and toast with! You could use ciabatta or panini but I’d stick with the sourdough!

Everyone has their favourite bread, so the answer for this I’d say is dependent on which breads you love to eat, combined with whether it can handle the pan-fried/ toasting process.
To be considered a good bread for toasting, it should be a thicker cut of bread and be more rigid to ensure that it doesn’t fall apart when toasting.
Some of my recommendations include:
3. Next, add the rapeseed oil and mushrooms into the pan. Distribute across the pan so they aren’t touching (Image 3).
4. Leave to brown on a high heat for a couple of minutes then stir (Image 4).
5. Reduce the heat and add the soy sauce, butter and garlic. Season with salt and lots of pepper and fry for a couple more minutes. Set the mushroom mix aside (Image 5).
6. Add a layer of cream cheese onto your crispy toast, a sprinkle of rocket and then the saucy browned mushrooms. Add a squeeze of lemon juice (Image 6).
You sure can! If you opt for a vegan cream cheese and butter, then this mushroom toast recipe is vegan. I like the oatly cream cheese and any standard vegan butter!
This recipe is best made and enjoyed fresh, as you want the crispy bread to be freshly toasted. What
For an extra luxurious mushroom toast, you can add a few slices of parma ham or prosciutto!
