Favorite Vegetarian meal (or one of them)

This recipe is adapted from Molly Wizenberg's Orangette blog (which due to her restaurant opening has gone sadly quiet recently) we all miss her but we know she is busy and will come back to us. But anyway I believe she adapted it from Jamie Oliver's Italian cookbook "Jamie's Italy".. there ! I hope all the proper acknowledgements are in place.

So incredibly simple and so delicious! The amount of ingredients is immaterial, it depends on how much you want. You go and look for fresh delicious wild mushrooms, or anything fresh you can find actually. I used chanterelles on my first try here. Clean them and slice them up and put them in a baking dish. Then tear fresh mozzarella into chunks and scatter them over the top of the mushrooms, add some fresh thyme (leaves stripped from stems) and a couple of pinches of kosher salt or sea salt if you have it. Drizzle the whole thing with some good quality extra virgin olive oil, and place in a 450 oven until the cheese bubbles.

I like to serve it with hot crusty bread, you could add a small salad to make a complete meal.

Sorry I don't have pics. But you can check out Molly's lovely prose and photos at

See you soon
