- 10 to 12 mushrooms
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 clove garlic, sliced thin
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 4 to 6 pieces bread
- 1/2 cup hummus
- Salt and pepper
In a medium skillet, add butter over medium heat. Once melted, add all chopped mushrooms and cook until they release their liquid and start to brown. Don’t stir them too much. You need them to get some color. They should cook for 5-6 minutes.
Once mushrooms are almost done (wilted, browned in parts, and tender) then add garlic, red pepper flakes along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir together and cook for 30 seconds. Then turn heat down to low and keep warm.
Toast the bread.
Smear each toast with about two tablespoons of hummus.
Top toast with mushrooms and serve while warm.
