#loveyourleftovers. Our go-to for Sunday brunch! This classic recipe ticks all the boxes — healthy, creamy, tasty and ready in no time at all. Our Fresh Start twist swaps out cream for yoghurt, as well as increasing the veggie serving, creating a nutritious and lower calorie alternative.


Creamy mushrooms
¼ brown onion, finely diced
½ clove garlic, finely chopped
125g button mushrooms, thinly sliced
½ courgette, grated
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp yoghurt

To serve

1 slice grainy bread, toasted
1 egg, poached or soft-boiled (optional)
