20 mins


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 12 small fresh sage leaves

  • 12 ounces cremini mushrooms, quartered

  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 ½ tablespoons butter

  • 4 ounces goat cheese

  • 4 slices crusty whole-wheat bread, toasted

  • 4 teaspoons pine nuts, toasted


  1. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add sage and cook until crisp, 2 to 4 seconds per side. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sage to a paper-towel-lined plate.

  2. Add mushrooms and shallot to the pan, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the mushrooms to a bowl.

  3. Add butter to the pan and cook, scraping up any browned bits, until the butter starts to brown, about 30 seconds. Pour the butter over the mushrooms and stir to combine.

  4. Spread goat cheese on each toast. Top with the mushrooms, pine nuts and the sage.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
