- Make a mushroom stew by slowly frying 1 small, finely chopped onion, 2-3 cloves crushed garlic, a handful of chopped coriander or parsley stalks, a little fresh thyme or oregano and the zest of 1 lemon in little hot oil until onion is soft.
- Add 50g butter and 200g finely sliced mixed mushrooms and cook until mushrooms are soft. Sprinkle with a little flour and cook it into the mix, then add enough stock or wine to form a thick gravy. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
- Pile stew on to toasted bagel halves, generously cover with grated cheddar and gruyere cheese and bake or grill in a hot oven until golden.
