  • Nonstick frying pan
  • Chopping board


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 300 gram chestnut mushrooms sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves sliced
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • 10 gram coriander finely chopped
  • pinch of black pepper
  • pinch of salt


  • Heat a nonstick frying pan with olive oil and when it begins to sizzle, add the mushrooms and cook, on high heat, until lightly browned which should take about 10 minutes.
  • Add the garlic slices, lemon juice, and coriander, and season with salt and black pepper and sauté for 5 more minutes.
  • Remove the mushroom mixture from the pan and add the slices of bread, toast on each side until golden.
  • Spoon the mushrooms and juices over the toasted bread.


Type of bread - my favorite type is the long slices but feel free to use any type of bread! You can toast it on a toaster OR follow my tip and, remove the mushroom mixture from the pan and toast the bread on the remaining olive oil. It gets extra indulgent!
Replacement of coriander - if you are not a big fan of coriander, try this recipe with some fresh parsley! I honestly prefer coriander but it works really well too.
Replacement of chestnut mushrooms - being the most common type of mushrooms I can get my hands on, I prefer to use these ones but this recipe works with any type of mushroom!
