Put a tiny drop of oil into a frying pan.

Ask an adult to cook the mushrooms in it over a low heat.

Stir them to stop them sticking to the pan.

Step 3

Cut a tomato in half then put the two halves in a bun tin or on a grill pan.

Ask an adult to put this under the grill for a few minutes until the tomatoes go soft.

Keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn.

Step 4
