NUTTY TOAST (Contains nuts)

I love this quick little meal, it literally takes a few mins to prepare and will leave you feeling full and happy, and it is also ideal to pack for a picnic.

Heat a table spoon full of oil in a pan and add in a handful of crushed walnuts (you can use whatever nuts you prefer) and heat for 2mins on a medium heat,then add a cupfull of mushrooms…again you can use whichever mushrooms are your fav!

Let them cook through for a few mins and at this stage I add a spoonful of pesto for extra flavour, but that is optional. You can also add some fresh chilli ,chilli flakes or garlic if you would like a bit of a kick.

Toast 2 chunky slices of Seeded, or Sourdough bread.When your toast is ready just add your nuts and mushroom topping and you are good to go.

If you are taking this on a picnic with you then maybe use slices of bread that are not as thick and you could drain off some of the oil before adding your topping,and i would use a top and bottom piece and use your mix as a filler.

Now all you have to do is enjoy!!

ADVICE: Always be careful of your teeth when you are eating nuts, and if you are making this for someone else check that they do not have a nut allergy.
