1 Preheat grill to high. Line a baking tray with tinfoil. Place mushrooms stem-side down on prepared tray and spray with oil. Grill for 8 minutes or until tender.
2 Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine bread-crumbs, parmesan, parsley and thyme with half of the oil. Turn mushrooms stem-side up and sprinkle with thyme mixture. Grill for 2 minutes or until golden.
3 Heat remaining olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan set over a high heat. Add chickpeas and paprika and cook for 2 minutes or until warmed through. Add spinach and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until wilted. Transfer vegetable mixture to a large serving bowl.
