INGREDIENTS:

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to low broil.
  2. Slice the baguette into 1” slices and place the slices on a baking sheet. Bake the slices for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. 
  3. While the bread is toasting, prepare the mushrooms. Wash the mushrooms and place them in a sauté pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and sauté the mushrooms until they become tender (about 8-10 minutes).
  4. While they are cooking, combine the dairy-free cream cheese with garlic powder and blend the LesserEvil Sour Cream and Onion Sun Poppers into a fine sand-like consistency. 
  5. Once the bread is toasted remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before topping with the cream cheese and additional toppings. 
  6. Once cooled, spread a layer of dairy-free cream cheese on top of each slice, add a pinch of broccoli sprouts and a few fresh oregano leaves. Top with sautéed mushrooms, sprinkle the sun popper crumbles on top, and finish with freshly cracked pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy!
