Yesterday was a very productive day,we set up our Christmas tree ,the small one and the big one (I know it is late for those of you who do it right after thanksgiving ) ornamented it and put up the lights,the home now looks so festive with candles and greetings and the Christmas classics playing softly in the background. Manasi loves this time of the year and it is fun to have her participate whole heartedly in all this. She enjoyed her hot cups of coco while decking up the tree.Mahir & myself were enjoying cups of tea as usual.
I was looking for something simple for lunch which could be fixed in less time and was complete in nutritional values along with being tasty :) I looked through Light Bites And Lunches by Readers Digest and came up with this amazing recipe for Mushroom & Thyme Toast. I loved it ,it was healthy & tasty with fewer calories and we all love mushrooms. I have tweaked the recipe a little and trust me the result is YUMMY !!!
Ricotta Cheese: 4 tbsp
2 celery sticks finely chopped
1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
Good pinch of cayenne pepper
chestnut mushrooms: 1 pound
sweet peppers: 6 yellow & red
Garlic clove: 1 crushed
fresh Thyme: 1 tbsp chopped
creme Fraiche: 2 tbsp OR Sour cream
Lime Juice: 1 tsp
8 Thick slices cut from a small loaf of mixed seed bread
Salt & pepper
Preparation & Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Note: This recipe will serve 4, so you can increase or decrease the amount of ingredients according to your requirement.
I have substituted dried parsley for fresh.
Like other cheeses, ricotta is a good source of protein and calcium. Because of its high moisture content,it is lower in fat than many other varieties of soft cheese.
