Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 10 min.
Mushroom tart
Prepare and slice 100 g mushrooms, then set aside.

Stage 2 - 2 min.
Mushroom tart
If not ready-rolled, roll out 200 g Puff or flaky pastry (pâte feuilletée) to a circle 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter.

Transfer the pastry to a sheet of cooking parchment laid on a baking sheet.

Preheat the oven to 410°F (210°C).

Stage 3 - 2 min.
Mushroom tart
Spread 30 g cream over the the whole surface of the pastry, then season with salt and pepper.

Stage 4 - 3 min.
Mushroom tart
Add 150 g Mushroom duxelles evenly.

Stage 5 - 3 min.
Mushroom tart
Arrange the sliced mushrooms on top.

Stage 6 - 2 min.
Mushroom tart
Finish by brushing the top of the tart with melted butter.

Stage 7 - 30 min.
Mushroom tart
Bake low in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes.

Stage 8
Mushroom tart
Leave to cool, preferably on a wire rack.
You can use olive oil instead of butter in stage 6, or – for a bolder effect – hazelnut oil.
Should be eaten as soon as possible while the puff pastry is still crisp.
Home made, based on a recipe by Diego Alary.
