Low-fat mushrooms on toast

I first saw this recipe last summer when I was on a diet for my holidays and when the guy cooking this on the telly said it was a low fat breakfast alternative my ears pricked up...I was getting a bit sick of special k! I only tend to make this on a weekend for brunch as I am far to sleepy during the week to make anything other than a bowl of cereal.  It also makes a tasty vegetarian dish.  The recipe below serves one and for those following weight watchers it is only 4 points!

To make the mushrooms on toast you will need the following:
  • 1/2 pack of sliced mushrooms or 7 largish mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1tsp parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp half fat creme fraiche
  • bread of your choice
Firstly add a little olive oil to your pan and add the mushrooms and garlic to it.  Cook for a couple of minutes over a medium heat until the mushrooms start to go brown. While the mushrooms are cooking, toast or grill your bread.  Season the mushrooms with salt and pepper and some parsley.

Add in the creme fraiche and leave to cook for a couple of minutes to warm it through.  Serve immediately on top of your toast.  

A tasty alternative to that bacon sarnie (oh who am I kidding a bacon sarnie would win every time, but still if you are on a diet its nice to know that something is low fat AND tastes nice!)

  1. This sounds as if it would be equally tasty as a starter, perhaps on ciabatta.
