Top tip: This tastes great served with green beans or a tossed green salad.
- Unroll the pastry and cut out four 7.5cm (3in) circles, or cut around an individual ramekin to get the correct fit .
- Fry the mushrooms and grated carrot in the butter with the garlic for 5-7 mins
- Sprinkle the grated cheese in with the mushroom mix while it's still hot, then stir in the crème fraîche.
- Divide the mushroom mix between the four ramekins and top with the pastry circles
- Bake in a hot oven for 15 mins at 200°C (400°F, gas mark 6), or until the pastry is golden brown, then serve.
