We were needing a quick lunch at the studio and figured avocado toast lunch doesn’t get any quicker than 5 minutes. Then we found mushrooms in the fridge and sautéed those up with some garlic. That took about 7 minutes. And topped it all off with a handful of sunflower seeds and we had a wowzer-delicious lunch.

Wow the flavors of the garlic mushrooms with creamy avocado was outstanding. The crunch of the salty nuts was an extra treat all topped off with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkling of salt and pepper. All within 15 minutes we were able to feed so many people and looked like culinary geniuses to the production teams. Well, that will all change when they read our post here and find out how ridiculously easy this quickie lunch was! hahaha.

Make sure to season the mushrooms with salt when you first put them into the pan. Other than just seasoning the mushrooms, the salt will also help the them release some of their moisture.
