Mushroom & Herb Bruschetta

"A simple, quick to make, low-fat and delicious anytime mushroom lovers' snack that I have adapted from a recipe I found in the November 2005 issue of the Australian magazine 'Table: easy family food for every day of the week'. I am posting it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour."

    I scaled this back for 1 serve and I had it with a simple fresh lettuce and tomatoe salad for a lovely refreshing light lunch. Thank you bluemoon downunder, made for ZAAR Chef Alphabet Soup.

    I enjoyed the mushrooms and the juices along with the fresh herbs! I too used button mushrooms and ended up slicing them to cook them to desired doneness. Thanks! Made for the Theirs Yours & MIne game.

    I loved it , my friend liked it - a bit too lemony she said. I chopped the mushrooms and got them half ready early on - by that I mean I 3/4 cooked them. I mixed lemon juice, basil garlic & parsley early in the day and let it meld - 10 minutes before serving I put a bit of butter on each of the bruschetta's and added the mushrooms -put in toaster oven for 10 minutes under broil- just warm then spooned on the lemon mixture & served Mmmmm They were just one step up from room temp.Thanks for posting bluemoon

    This is truly a wonderful appetizer. We were four people and I made this. We got one each LOL But I was making another bruschetta. I used button mushrooms cause I don't know what field mushrooms are. This is so different from regular tomato bruschetta. But so good. We loved the herbs-lemon-mushroom taste. Thanks Bluemoon. Made for 123 hit wonders.


July 2008 update: VERY happy to be back on Zaar after about a two year absence due to having had no internet connection at home, and having been too unwell for a time so that getting re-connected wasn't even a priority! <br> <br>And really looking forward to getting back into the Zaar world and connecting again with the many wonderful people I knew before, and new people, of course!
