  • 1 baguette
  • 1 cup butternut squash cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup mushrooms sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup vegan cream cheese
  • 3-4 thyme sprigs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Balsamic reduction optional


  • Preheat your oven to 425 and grease a small sheet pan.
  • Place your butternut squash on the sheet pan and drizzle ½ tsbp of olive oil on it. Place it in the oven and cook for 25-30 minutes (until you are able to pierce it with a fork).
  • While your squash is cooking, place ½ into a small skillet over meduim heat.
  • Once the oil is warmed up, add in the garlic for 1-2 minutes.
  • Place mushrooms into skillet and sauté for 3 minutes, stirring often.
  • Cover mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove cover and add thyme. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  • While the mushrooms are cooking, slice your baguette and place it in the toaster or oven. Toast for 5 minutes or until you desired crispness.
  • Once everything is done baking, begin to assemble your bruschetta. Smear cream cheese on top of toasted bread, then place cooked mushrooms and baked butternut squash on top.
  • Option to add more thyme or salt and pepper and to drizzle with balsamic reduction. Serve immediately.


Baguette – You may use any loaf of bread you like! I choose a small baguette from trader joes (it is actually take and bake) because I wanted a smaller top (meaning more pieces!).
Mushrooms - Mushrooms are important star to this recipe, but if you are against mushrooms, you may use apasrgus.
Butternut Squash - Again, another star. If you need to sub this, you may use acorn squash or sweet potatoes.
Garlic – You certainty can leave this out! It is to add flavor to the mushrooms while they are cooking.
Vegan Cream Cheese – You may also use a vegan ricotta or vegan brie. You may use regular cream cheese, as well as another smooth based cheese.
Thyme – You may use oregano or omit this.
Oil - You may use any oil you usually use in a skillet. I used olive oil.
