RECIPE: Super Quick Mixed Vegetable Toasts


This was a meal which was a positive out of a negative. I'd come back from Tescos doing my grocery shop and was a little bit traumatised to be honest with all the panic buying. After seeing empty shelves it gave me a sick feeling in my stomach. I then switched on the news and then it was like my stomach dropped. After watching a little too much of good old Sky news, I was no longer in the mood for the big meal I had planned. I wanted something easy, filling and quick. This was what I made and it comforted me no end.

I hope you guys are all staying safe and trying not to get too stressed (I know, easier said than done right!). This little recipe helped feed my soul and grounded me too. I could eat it on the sofa, knees up to my chest with the plate balancing on top of them. 'Finger food' as it were!

WHAT YOU NEED - serves 1 little soul

  • 1 -  2 tsp garlic or chill oil (or a combination of the two)
  • 1 tomato chopped into cubes
  • 2 - 3 mushrooms sliced thinly
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1 slice of sourdough bread
  • salt & pepper
  • truffle oil
  • parmesan cheese
  • fresh chopped parsley and basil to garnish
METHOD
  • In a frying pan, add your garlic oil and allow to warm.
  • Add the mushrooms and fry for a few minutes before adding the tomatoes. season with salt and pepper and finally add the spinach. Continue to cook until the tomatoes and mushrooms are cooked through and the spinach has wilted.
  • Pop your bread in the toaster now.
  • When everything has cooked, stir through a little truffle oil off the heat (optional) and top your toast with the cooked veggies.
  • Serve with another grinding of pepper, a good grating of parmesan and a sprinkle of freshly chopped parsley and basil leaves
  • Apply to face
I hope you try this recipe out. It's great as a quick lunch or a light evening meal if you're just feeling a little overwhelmed.

Stay safe guys and sending lots of love,
