These Goat Cheese and Mushroom Crostini are fun and easy to prepare. They taste even better and if you add some fresh herbs to them. Perfect for a party.
4 Tbsp olive oil (2 Tbsp for crostini + 2 Tbsp for mushrooms)
10 slices sprouted rye bread or any other low GI bread, sliced in half
1/2 cup goat cheese
herbs to decorate, I used chives
For the sauteed mushrooms:
1 pound brown mushrooms, chopped
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Place the bread slices on the pan and toast them on each side until crisp and golden brown. Work in batches if needed.
To saute the mushrooms, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, garlic powder, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper and saute, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms shrink in volume, turn brown, and the liquid has evaporated, for about 10 minutes.
Spread the goat cheese on toasted bread slices and arrange the mushrooms on top. Decorate with herbs.
The crostini taste better when warm.
