Wild Mushroom Tartlet Recipe

01.07.15 by Jackie

I recently hosted a dinner party and was looking for a gourmet side dish for filet mignon. I selected a savory tart filled with a combination of wild mushrooms such as fresh morels, beech, maitake, Hegehogs and brown crimini mushrooms. 

Playing with such ingredients is a great way to take your guests on a great gastronomical adventure. Plus, preparing this dish is fairly basic and simple. I used  pastry dough that I baked first and then filled with the mushrooms. They're rich in umami, which is the savory flavor quality that sort of mimics what we get from meat. The savory tarts ended up being the perfect pairing for the gourmet meat.

Making savory tarts doesn't require a specific recipe. The basic dish consists of a puff pastry shell filled with your favorite mixture and topped with vegetables. I had Baby Bella mushrooms on hand, so I made a version using them along with an artichoke pesto.

The pesto is a combination of artichoke hearts, lemon, garlic, pine nuts and olive oil. To soften the pesto, I added mascarpone cheese. I topped the tart with the Baby Bella mushrooms and roasted red bell peppers. Cheddar cheese was the finishing touch so the filling formed one piece.

Portobello Mushroom Blue Cheese Tart Recipe Recipe

Most of the time, I have puff pastry in the freezer. That means that when I’m in a pinch, as I was today, I can always whip up a light meal with a few vegetables and make a savory tart. This time around I made a caramelized onion and fennel filling, topped with sliced grilled Portobello mushrooms and blue cheese. I paired the individual tarts with mixed greens and a simple vinaigrette.

Sunny days are back, so I tend to prepare easy, lighter meals like this one and a lot of cooling drinks to fight off the heat. Who wants to be stuck in a hot kitchen when the weather is this nice?
