Jy hoef nie te wonder wat om vir aandete te maak nie - Checkers en Sjef Sune Niemand het elke Woensdag die antwoord op die vraag: "Wat eet ons vanaand". Op vanaand se spyskaart: Sampione tertjies met heerlike slaai.
Easy mushroom tarts
500g store bought puff pastry from Checkers
1x punnet button mushrooms
Few sprigs of fresh thyme leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
1ea lemon, zest and juice
½ ea leek, finely sliced
200g smooth cottage cheese with chives
Melt the butter in a saucepan and toss the mushroom, thyme leaves, lemon zest and juice as well as the leeks in the saucepan over medium heat to lightly cook the mushroom filling – 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Lightly roll the pastry on a floured surface and cut into round or square shape – transfer to a baking tray (spray and cook on the tray).
Spread the cottage cheese over the pastry leaving a 5cm border, top with the mushroom mixture.
Fold the 5cm border over the just create a rough ‘border’ still – do not cover the mushrooms, border only.
Bake the tart for 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden and crisp. Serve with a simple green salad.
Can also use bacon with the mushroom tart – first fry the bacon then the rest of the mushroom filling in the same pan. Can also fill whole brown mushrooms with the filling above – omit the button mushrooms in the filling, use the bacon and some chopped nuts with the rest of the filling ingredients – spread the cottage over the raw whole mushroom – lightly fry in a saucepan or bake in the oven – use with or without pastry.
