Baked, Melted Crispy Mushrooms

4 large flat mushrooms

1 bunch spring onions, trimmed and sliced

1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped

a few sprigs fresh thyme, leaves picked

250g cheese, thinly sliced

2 thick slices bread, made into breadcrumbs

1 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped

4 handfuls rocket, washed and dried

juice of 1 lemon

extra virgin olive oil

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6. Lay the mushrooms on a large baking tray and sprinkle with the onions, garlic and thyme. Top the mushrooms with the slices of cheese.


Toss together the breadcrumbs and the parsley and sprinkle over the mushrooms. 

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven until breadcrumbs are brown and the mushrooms are cooked through. Meanwhile, dress the rocket with the lemon juice and some olive oil. Serve the mushrooms with the dressed rocket.
