Tips to Double This Mushroom and Arugula Toast
Like most toasts, here’s the easy one: you can duplicate the ingredients and toss them together super-quickly for a crowd. I even recommend making a double batch of mushrooms when you make our Mushroom & Black Bean Tacos in the plant-based RE:SET, as your mushroom mix will be ready to reheat and put on toast your ricotta even in the middle of a busy day.

You want each mushroom to come into direct contact with the pan and get crispy pancakes, instead of gathering together and “steaming”. So I allocate a little more time to this step: after pan frying the first batch, I transfer to a plate while cooking the second batch, then I put them all back in the pan together to keep warm. until it’s on the plate.
