Chestnut mushrooms are good for you. They are packed with Vitamin B (which acts against stress and fatigue), Vitamin D (which helps keep your hair, skin and nails strong and healthy) and minerals such as potassium, selenium, and copper. They taste good, too! Especially when cooked with a little garlic and popped on a piece of buttered toast...


  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 300g chestnut mushrooms, wiped, trimmed and roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2-3tbsp roughly chopped flatleaf parsley
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pieces of thickly sliced bread, toasted
  • a knob of butter

If you donít want to use butter, spread a little pesto on the toast instead.


  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the mushrooms until they start to turn golden (this takes about 5 mins). Add the garlic and cook for another minute or so. Add the chopped parsley, mix gently and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Pop the hot toast on a warm plate, spread with butter if you want, and spoon over the hot mushroom mix.

I bought some mushrooms on special offer, but when I got home I didnt really know what to do with them. When i looked up recipes the picture looked gorgeous so i though ti owuld give it a go. i am not the best cook in the world but this went down a treat. I have also made this to go on top of pasta, it really is gorgeous.
