Wild Mushroom Crostini


12 Pieces

NOTE: This is an easy and super-quick version of everyone's favourite topping combination. (If you can't find fresh wild mushrooms near you, look for the dehydrated ones in your produce aisle and re-hyrate with some hot water for a 10-15 minute soak.)

The spreadable cream cheese is a shortcut to extra garlic flavour but a classic, whipped cream cheese or mascarpone would be tasty too!

1 Whole Wheat Baguette, Cut Into 1/2" Slices
2 tsp Fresh Thyme
16 oz Wild Mushrooms, Stemmed & Diced
2 cloves Garlic, Minced
4 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Salt
125 g container of Herb & Garlic Light Spreadable Cream Cheese
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, For Serving

  1. Broil the baguette slices until they are lightly browned on both sides. Set aside.
  2. In a sauté pan set over medium-high heat, add olive oil, garlic, mushrooms and thyme.
  3. Sauté for about 5 minutes until mushrooms are just cooked through. Season with salt.
  4. Meanwhile, smear a teaspoon of cream cheese onto each toasted baguette slice.
  5. Divide mushroom mixture over baguette slices and put on a platter for serving.
  6. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over crostini and serve immediately.
