Ingredients

1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
16 button (white) mushrooms, thinly sliced 220 g
2 shallots, finely chopped 80 g
4 tbsp butter, unsalted, softened 55 g
1 tsp curry powder 3 g
8 slices country bread, lightly toasted 360 g
1 bunch watercress 120 g
8 slices cheese, low-fat 170 g

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: Thinly slice the mushrooms and finely chop the shallots.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and sauté, with stirring, until the mushrooms are browned and any liquid they give off has evaporated, about 3 min. Lower the heat, then add the remaining oil and the shallots. Sauté about 2 min, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  3. Preheat the top broiler. Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet then grill for a couple minutes until lightly browned.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the butter with the curry, then spread this mixture on the toasted bread slices. Put one half of a cheese slice on each bread slice, then add the mushrooms and top with the watercress. Cover with the remaining half-slices, taking care to cover the watercress leaves so that they will not burn.
  5. Put in the oven at a distance of about 10 cm below the heating element and grill until the cheese melts and the crostini tops are nicely coloured, 2-3 min. Serve.
