Sydney foodie, Ayeh Far, has shared her recipe for creamy mushroom toast that she says is a perfect healthy for lunch or brunch option
‘I love cooking with mushrooms for their umami flavour. They have a meaty texture so they’re a great meat substitute in so many dishes,’ she wrote.
She adds a tablespoon of olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt to a pan with her sliced onion and sautés until translucent.
Ayeh adds the garlic to the pan then the mushrooms with a light drizzle of olive oil, turns up the heat.
Ayeh starts by frying up some onion, garlic and mushrooms in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil then once the mushrooms are browned she seasons with salt, pepper and chopped parley
Once the mushrooms have browned, she seasons with salt, pepper and chopped parley and removes the pan from the heat.
For the salad mix on top, the foodie adds rocket leaves to a bowl and mixes in some balsamic vinegar, a light drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt.
After toasting a couple of slices of bread – Ayeh said her favourite to use is whole grain sourdough – she layers her bruschetta by spreading on some ricotta cheese, adding some of the dressed rocket leaves then layering some mushrooms on top.

In a previous video, she revealed how to make the ‘the perfect sandwich’ with lashings of avocado, hummus and beetroot.
‘I’m not kidding when I say it’s one of the best sandwiches I’ve made in so long’, Ayeh said.
To begin, prepare your ingredients by grating beetroot, slicing cucumber and tomato into thin slices. Ayeh prefers to use Persian or Lebanese cucumbers as they’re less watery and crisp.

Next, smash your avocado, make sure to season after smashing. ‘It’s so nice and creamy and replaces the need to add a sauce, butter or mayonnaise’, says Ayeh.
Then, choose the bread you desire and toast it, Ayeh uses wholegrain sourdough as it’s high in protein and her favourite.
Now you’re ready to assemble, spread hummus generously to one slice of bread, then layer with cucumber, tomato and season.
