Mushroom Tart Tartin

This is a simple recipe for Mushroom Tart Tartin which makes a lovely vegetarian main dish for any occasion!

Here is a wonderful Puff Pastry recipe for an Onion and Mushroom Tart Tartin. What is a "Tart Tartin" you ask? Well, basically it is an upside-down quiche. I mean, that's over simplifying. But for a Tart Tartin, you prepare the filling, cover the top with puff pastry, bake and then flip over to serve. Sounds complicated? – not in the least!

4 red onions
3 tbsp. olive oil
200 gr. (1/4 lb) mushrooms, any type
1/4 cup walnuts
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 cup cheese – the stronger flavor, the better – try mixing parmesan, stilton or blue cheese – whatever works for your family
Salt and pepper to taste
250 gr. (1/4 lb) puff pastry, defrosted

1. Peel the onions and cut into 8 wedges each.

2. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the onions.

3. Clean and cut the mushrooms fairly large – for example, if you are using button mushrooms, cut each one in half. If using any other type (example Portobello) cut into cubes about the size of half a button mushroom. You want the filling to be rather chunky.

4. After about ten minutes of sautéing the onions, add the mushrooms for another 5 minutes.

5. Now add the balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and cook another 5-8 minutes, or until the onions are soft and the liquid is evaporated.

6. Remove from heat and stir in the walnuts.

7. Now, take a round cake pan or deep pie dish. Spray cooking spray or grease with butter/margarine.

8. Spoon the onion-mushroom mixture into the pan and sprinkle the cheese over top.

9. Roll out the puff pastry and cut a round which is just slightly larger than the circumference of your cake pan.(it doesn't have to be exact)

10. Place the pastry over the filling. Tuck the edges inside the cake tin all around the filling – like you're tucking a blanket in.

11. Bake at 180C (350F) for about 35-40 minutes or until the pastry is golden and puffy and yummy-looking.

12. Cool for 5 minutes before serving. Turn the Tartin out onto a flat plate so that crust is on the bottom and the delicious filling is facing up.

13. Serve.
