  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the mushrooms for 5–6 mins over a high heat until they begin to brown. Stir in the spinach and cook for 3-4 mins until it has wilted and the liquid has evaporated. Stir in the butter and garlic, season and cook for 2 mins.
  2. Divide the mushroom mixture between the toast, then top with the pine nuts, parsley leaves, a twist of black pepper and a drizzle of truffle oil, if using.

Tip: When buying mushrooms, the best ones have smooth white caps without soft spots or brown patches, but imperfect ones are great for blitzing into soups or adding to pasta sauces. Store, unwashed, in the fridge.
