Crostini With Portobello Mushroom Cream

Easy crostini with portobello mushroom cream is delicious and very easy and quick starter. I love combination of hearty cream with aromatic and full of flavour greek basil. Tarragon would work well so if you got some just add a bunch of tarragon leaves instead of basil leaves.
