Mushroom Tarte Tatin
Finding non-pasta based vegetarian dishes is not as easy as I thought it might be. I had dinner guests last night, hence the special request, and I came across mushroom tarte tatin in Donna Hay's No Time To Cook, it was really, really good, not to mention really really easy. So I have to share:
1 leek chopped
4 mushrooms (I used nice big portobello's and a few little button mushrooms as well)
3 sprigs of thyme
sea salt and black pepper
2 sheet of frozen puff pastry
1 egg beaten
Preheat oven to 180c (or 355f).
Heat and melt butter in a 23cm non-stick frypan with an ovenproof handle, add leek and cook until translucent. Remove leek from the pan and add mushrooms, cook for 2 minutes on each side and then return leek to pan and add tyme. Place 2 22cm rounds of puff pastry on top and brush top of pastry with beaten egg. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until pastry is puffed and golden. Place a plate on top of the pan and turn the tarte out to serve.
