- 1 cup Vegetable Broth
- 1/4 cup bottled chili sauce, or catsup
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger root, grated
- 1/4 cup minced onion
- margarine, or sesame oil
- 2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 4 slices whole wheat bread, toasted
Heat the stock, chili sauce, ginger and onions in a small saucepan; simmer for about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt some margarine in a small frying pan; saute the mushrooms for about 5 minutes.

You may quarter or halve the pieces of toast. Spoon the mushrooms and sauce over, and serve at once
