Mushrooms and Humous on Toast

This is going to be a quick post!! I’m sitting here writing this post two minutes after having demolished this for my lunch! You learn to eat quickly when you have a small baby as you don’t know when you will have time to eat next. I videoed how I manage to take photos of my food whilst learning to look after Rowan and posted it on my Instagram stories so check it out. The gist of it is that I usually have Rowan in my sling so I have both hands available, plus he does not like being put down! I have to be really quick too, no time to set up and add extra props, just plate up and snap!

This is a really quick and simple lunch, I think it is going to become a household staple. It only takes 5-10 minutes to make (longer with a tiny human!) yet is really nourishing. I have to make sure I am keeping my calorie intake up for breastfeeding yet still getting a balanced diet (just to be clear though I am still eating my weight in chocolate!).

Mushrooms and Humous on Toast

Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 100g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • Juice of 1/3 lemon
  • Handful of parsley
  • 2 tbsp humous
  • Two slices of bread (I used homemade granary), toasted
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Place the mushrooms in a skillet or frying pan with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Cook for a few minutes until they are just starting to soften, then add the garlic and cook for a further couple of minutes. Add the lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper, stir everything through then take off the heat.
  2. Spread the humous on the toast, then top with the mushrooms!

Enjoy! H xx
