Mushroom Tart

I love mushrooms and onions so when I found this recipe, I had to try it. It's been the perfect recipe to make whenever any of my vegetarian friends come over.


  • Flour for rolling out puff pastry
  • 1 (from a 17.3-ounce package) sheet frozen puff pastry thawed according to package instructions
  • 1 medium onion halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) white mushrooms trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 packages (10 ounces) fresh baby spinach
  • 2 ounces soft goat cheese crumbled


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a floured surface, roll the puff pastry out to a 16-by-10-inch rectangle. Trim uneven edges. Place the pastry on a baking sheet. With a sharp knife, lightly score dough to form a 1-inch border. Using a fork, prick dough inside the border every 1/2 inch.

Bake until golden, rotating pan once, about 15 minutes or until tender.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, toss onion with 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt. Cover and cook over medium heat until onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir. Continue cooking with cover on for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Set aside.

In a large saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, heat remaining oil. Add mushrooms; cover and cook until tender and all liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Fold in spinach; season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes more. Drain any liquid.

Top dough with mushroom-spinach mixture. Scatter onion and goat cheese on top. Bake until cheese is lightly browned, about 15 minutes.

There were no left-overs for our family.

I had to cut myself an edge piece because I love the puff-pastry crust.
