Sliced mushrooms in a white sauce, served on triangular slices of wholemeal toast


  • 4 handfuls of cup or button mushrooms, washed and sliced
  • 300ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 4 slices wholemeal bread
  • 4 teaspoons lower-fat spread
  • 4 tablespoons cornflour


  1. Put the mushrooms and milk into a saucepan, and heat until just boiling. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile toast the bread. Spread each slice with lower-fat spread.

  3. Mix the cornflour with 2 tablespoons of cold water, then stir the mixture into the mushrooms. Heat until it thickens (this takes only a few seconds) and cook gently for 1 minute.


    Another time, use the mushroom mixture as a delicious filling for omelettes.

  4. Divide the mushrooms evenly between the slices of toast and serve straight away.


    You can use regular or mini pitta breads instead of toast if you prefer. Warm the pittas first and stuff them with some shredded lettuce before spooning in the mushrooms.
