I love quick and tasty snacks like this which are easy to throw together and are packed full of flavour. Garlic is one of my favourite ingredients, and the fact that it has so many healthy properties, is one of the biggest reasons I justify the amount I use when I cook! Getting some decent quality bread makes all the difference for a bruschetta, you want something that has a nice crisp crust and a soft but chewy inside!
200g of mushrooms, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 small ciabatta loaves, sliced in half
A generous pinch of sea salt and ground black pepper
Heat a frying pan over a high heat and add a little olive oil. Add the garlic and fry for 30 seconds, then throw in the sliced mushrooms. Fry the mushrooms until they are soft.
While the mushrooms are cooking, drizzle the ciabatta with a little extra olive oil and toast under a hot grill or on a griddle pan, until golden. Place a generous amount of garlic mushrooms on each toast and season with sea salt and ground black pepper.
