Marinated Oyster Tartine

with Mushroom and Lemon Herb Chèvre

Marinated Oyster Tartine

Lemon and chèvre pairs wonderfully well with Le Pleurote Delicieux Oyster Mushrooms. These open-faced mushroom tartines spread with herbed chèvre and arugula are terrific for a weekend lunch. Topped with a soft poached egg and a fresh grinding of black pepper, they become a perfect brunch dish.

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 5 oz log (140 g) soft chèvre
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp (2.5 mL) freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) lemon zest, finely chopped
  • 3 Tbsp (45 mL) fresh basil leaves
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) fresh oregano
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) fresh dill
  • 4½-inch (1.2-cm) slices of ACE Bakery Harvest Grain, Multigrain or Garlic Oval
  • 1 cup (240 mL) baby arugula, loosely packed
  • ¾ cup (180 mL) marinated mushrooms, preferably Le Pleurote Délicieux Oyster Mushrooms

Instructions

  1. Place the chèvre, olive oil, pepper, lemon juice, lemon zest and fresh herbs in the bowl of a food processor and process for about 1 minute, or until smooth and the herbs are finely chopped.
  2. Lightly toast or grill the bread and while still warm, spread each slice generously with 2 Tbsp (30 mL) of the Lemon Herb Chèvre. Divide the arugula and marinated mushrooms evenly over the tartines and finish with a little more black pepper if desired.
