creamy mushroom crostini

Iron deficiency is a common problem in women. As per statistics, every second women in India is Iron deficient which causes a lot of serious mental, social and economic issues in her life.

The most simplest and effective way of overcoming this problem is to start early with an Iron rich diet made of foods and supplements that supply enough nutrient to the body. Being pregnant myself, I have devised a daily diet which includes Iron rich ingredients like mushrooms, dates, leafy vegetables, chicken, etc that ensure a good supply of Iron to the fetus for its right development.

Here is an Iron rich recipe – Creamy Mushroom Crostini using mushrooms and whole wheat bread, both excellent sources of Iron, which I regularly whip up for its nutrition quotient as well as the ease in which it can be prepared. The recipe is a equally savored by my 5 year old child making it the perfect dish to prepare for the entire family.
