One of my favorite movies is Last Holiday, with Queen Latifah and L.L. Cool J. In it, she is a budding chef and the appetizers and entrees she creates throughout the movie are swoon-worthy! This mushroom hash on a toasted baguette is inspired by one of the beginning scenes where she makes a duck hash on toast.
You can mentally taste the crunch and imagine how incredibly delicious it is!
This is a vegan appetizer that everyone will enjoy!
This appetizer has no eggs, dairy, or any other animal-derived product. In otherwords, it’s vegan.
Although I am not a vegan, I am intrigued by all-things-veggies and am constantly trying to get more vegetables in my life! The hash in this appetizer is made of purple sweet potatoes, Swiss chard, green onions, and Big Mountain Food Lion’s Man Mushroom Crumble.
The simple combination tastes anything but simple! It’s a crowd-pleaser!
What is Lion’s Mane Mushroom Crumble?
Lion’s Mane is an edible mushroom that is often referred to as “the smart mushroom.” Apparently, it supports cognitive health. I don’t know about that yet I DO know that if you’re into mushrooms, you’re going to enjoy the taste of Lion’s Mane.
An easy way to try Lion’s Mane mushroom is getting it directly from Big Mountain Foods and their Lion’s Mane Mushroom Crumble. Basically, it’s a blend of organic Lion’s Mane, Portobello, and Shitake Mushrooms. You buy it fresh and keep it in the fridge.
This is a quick and easy appetizer.
Basically, there are three steps to this appetizer. (1) You boil a purple sweet potato, (2) toast some baguette slices, and (3) sauté the Big Mountain Food Lion’s Mane Mushroom Crumble in a skillet with extra virgin olive oil, salt pepper, Swiss Chard, green onion, and the sweet potatoes.
What does it taste like? What do I serve with this?
The combination of mushroom, Swiss chard, green onion, and sweet potatoes all work together in unison: savory, bitter, crunchy, and sweet all tied together with heat and a drizzle of olive oil. Delicious!
Obviously, this is a perfect appetizer that covers a lot of ground where not much else is needed. I also like to make it as a side
Stock up and start toasting!
