Magic Mushroom Toast


Oh my, oh my this mushroom toast is to die for! Not that I can't eat avocado toast every single day but this is so good I may take a break from the family's favorite brekkie. This is a compound recipe and requires making a few different recipes, but each one is super simple would also be delicious in buddha bowls. I place this magic concoction on a slice of #Firebrand sourdough, one of my favorite local breads.


This meal boasts a healthy source of plant-based protein. Benefits of consuming protein from plants means you get healthy fiber, something sorely lacking in most of our diets. Fiber supports proper digestion, healthy bacterial growth, reduced bad (LDL) cholesterol, stabilizes blood sugar, helps maintain energy and eliminate waste. Mushrooms are appreciated for helping to boost the immune system and improving our overall well-being. Add in a boost of anti-inflammatory turmeric and your fueled and ready to take on the day!
