You might have seen over Instagram recently, that awesome mushrooms on toast I had for breakfast courtesy of Katy. I never usually opt for mushrooms on toast, unless there’s some sort of egg involved too. I don’t know why, but it had always felt like an incomplete order – until I actually tried it of course. Because it was absolutely delicious. Piled high with sliced chestnut mushrooms, rocket and tomatoes. Simple yet fantastic.

So because I couldn’t get it out of my mind, I obviously got hooked on making it at home too. It’s so simple, and so cheap. Plus healthy too, with plenty of fresh ingredients. For the weekends however, I wanted to add a little twist. Something for us to be able to shake it up.

Cue, my creamy, paprika mushrooms on toast.

Made with low fat soft cheese, a small amount of paprika, salt and pepper, the mushrooms are really creamy, with a subtle spiced taste. Combined with the juicy tomatoes, which are tossed in the mushrooms and sauce just before serving, and fresh rocket, it’s one delicious breakfast or lunch!
