  • 4 slices crusty bread
  • 250 g saffron milk cap (pine) mushrooms washed & chopped into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 small onion peeled & finely chopped
  • 2 whole red chillies finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic peeled & grated
  • 1 knob butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp whole milk or double cream
  • ½ tsp sweet paprika
  • salt & pepper to season


  • Add your olive oil and butter to a frying pan and place on a medium heat.
  • Add your garlic and onions to the pan and sauté for a few minutes until your onions start to become translucent. Season with salt and pepper as they cook.
  • As your onions begin to soften, add your mushrooms, chillies and paprika and stir them around to coat them in the butter and oil. Saffron milk cap mushrooms are quite robust so will need around 8-10 minutes to soften.
  • Now pour your milk over the mushrooms and onions and turn the heat to low.
  • Stir and allow to simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, lightly toast your bread and place on two plates.
  • Spoon the garlic mushrooms over the top of your toast and serve immediately.
