  1. Put the olive oil, garlic and some seasoning in a small bowl and mix well. Brush this all over the mushroom tops and bases.
  2. Heat a nonstick pan over a medium heat, add the mushrooms and fry for 4 mins each side until soft and lightly golden. Set aside to cool a little.
  3. Preheat the oven to gas 8, 220°C, fan 200°C. Unroll the pastry and cut out 4 x 13cm circles (cut round a plate or small bowl). Place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and prick all over.
  4. Place 1 mushroom in the centre of each circle and sprinkle with half the parsley. Bake for 18-20 mins until the pastry is puffed and golden.
  5. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining parsley and the hazelnuts. Serve hot.
