Add the 'nduja and cook for a further 2 minutes. The Calabrian 'nduja will melt and break down, releasing an intense red colour

Once it has cooked, place the mushroom mix on top of 4 slices of the toasted bread and add a teaspoon of crème fraiche on top of each piece to finish. The 4 remaining toasted slices will be for the next bruschetta recipe

Place the strips of peppers on a baking tray and mix with a pinch of salt and pepper and sunflower oil. Place in the preheated oven 8 minutes, or until just soft
