Ok. I changed this some but had mushrooms and baby spinach on hand and a game to play it in. I made ours dairy free by substituting light extra virgin olive oil for the butter and omitting the cheese. The cheese would have been good but it was fine vegan-wise without it. We have an aversion to dried thyme so I replaced it with dried marjoram, a common substitution of mine. I used sea salt, to taste, no pepper but a bit of recipe#257499 and served the dishes separate but together - no oven time. Not sure this is authentically Omani but I made it for DD1 (5 years old) DD2 (14 months) and I & for January 2013 ~ NA/ME Explores OMAN!
