  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the peppers and cumin seeds in a roasting tin, drizzle with 1/2 tbsp oil and toss together. Put the oats and chives in a blender, season, and whizz to coarse crumbs. Put in a shallow bowl.
  2. Put the beaten eggs in another shallow bowl. Dip 1 trimmed, whole mushroom in the egg mix, then dip in the oat mix, until fully coated. Repeat with the remaining mushrooms.
  3. Put the coated mushrooms in the tin with the peppers and cook for 25-30 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and crisp on top.
  4. Meanwhile, make a dressing by whisking the remaining olive oil with the mustard and honey.
  5. Remove the mushrooms from the tin. Add the spinach to the peppers in the warm tin and allow to wilt. Serve the mushrooms on the peppers and spinach, drizzled with the dressing.
