Cilantro & Mushroom Chili Cheese Toast
All my readers by now know that I love Mushroom and when I sauté it with herbs or leaves,I love them even more. Cilantro also known as Coriander has been my favorite of the green leafy vegetables and it has immense health benefits. I not only use it to garnish my food but enjoy cooking with it as well. I am always generous with the amount of cilantro I use and enjoy the freshness in taste that it has. We’ve all eaten a regular chili cheese toast I’m sure but I decided to make something different and added mushrooms to it. Sauté a little,bake for couple of minutes and you’ll have the most amazing coriander flavored chili mushroom cheese toast. The mushrooms make a great topping and when it’s layered on buttered garlic bread and baked with cheese,what else could you ask for. A perfect recipe and a great snack – Simply Savvillicious!

Inspiration – Good flavors from herbs and leaves in cooking have always inspired me and helped me discover or rather understand my taste buds better. It is like a self analysis to your palate and helps you identify your preference. Just love Cilantro and all the other Italian herbs in my cooking.
