Deviled mushroom toasts: Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a nonstick skillet, add 1 thinly sliced onion and cook over
medium heat until softened. Stir in 1 crushed garlic clove, 1 pound halved mushrooms, and 1 seeded and diced red bell pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes, then stir in 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, and 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar. Lower the heat and cook gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 2 tablespoons chopped parsley and season lightly with salt and pepper. Toast the bread and spread with 1/2 cup low-fat soft goat cheese. Spoon the hot deviled mushroom mixture over the toasts and serve immediately.
- Though there are over 2,500 varieties of mushrooms grown throughout the world, not all are edible and some are poisonous. All edible mushrooms are a useful source of several B vitamins.
- 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.
