Celebrity chef Bill Granger shares his favourite brunch recipe – a simple combination of field mushrooms, herbs and creamy taleggio cheese.

Serves 4

8 large field (portobello) mushrooms,

about 10cm diameter

1 tbsp thyme, roughly chopped

4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 lemon, juice

1 large garlic clove, cut into 8 slivers

200g baby english spinach, washed

150g italian taleggio cheese, sliced

4 thick slices toast, to serve

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, to serve

1 Preheat oven to 200C. Put mushrooms in a roasting tin. Mix thyme, oil and lemon juice together and pour over mushrooms. Put a sliver of garlic on each mushroom and bake for 10 minutes.

2 Meanwhile, put spinach (with water clinging to leaves) in a frying pan over medium heat and turn with a spatula until wilted.

3 Remove mushrooms from oven. Top each mushroom with a little spinach and some sliced cheese. Return to oven for 5–6 minutes until cheese has melted.

4 To serve, put 2 mushrooms on each slice of toast. Drizzle with pan juices and balsamic vinegar.
