Take advantage of the many types of mushrooms in store with this wonderfully earthy supper dish.

Serves 4-6 Preparation: 10 min Cooking: 10 min

  • 60 ml (¼ c) olive oil
  • 30 g butter
  • 400 g mixed mushrooms, halved if large
  • 2 red chillies, chopped
  • 2 leeks, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 60 ml (¼ c) white wine
  • 100 g green beans, blanched
  • 4 slices bread
  • extra olive oil for brushing
  • 1 garlic clove, halved
  • handful of fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • handful of grated mozzarella cheese

1 Heat the oil with half the butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Fry the mushrooms for 2 minutes or until wilted. Remove and set aside. Reduce the heat to medium.

2 Add remaining butter to the pan with the chillies, leeks and chopped garlic. Stir-fry for 2 minutes or until soft, then add the wine and cook for 2 minutes or until evaporated. Return the mushrooms to the pan and stir in the blanched beans.

3 Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan over medium-high heat. Brush the bread on both sides with extra oil, then toast on the griddle pan for 2 minute on each side or until lightly charred. Rub one side of each slice with the cut side of the halved garlic.

4 Stir the parsley into the mushroom mixture, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over. Pile onto the toasted bread and serve.
