Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the mushrooms on both sides until tender. Remove and place in a greased ovenproof dish in a single layer.

Wash the spinach and cook quickly in the water remaining on the leaves until wilted. Drain well and use to top each of the mushrooms.

Mix the walnuts and Brie together in a bowl and season well. Top the mushrooms with the mixture and place in a preheated oven (190°C/Gas Mark 5) or under the grill and cook until the cheese is bubbling and golden.

Serve on a bed of mixed salad leaves and garnish with cherry tomatoes.
