Green Bean, Mushroom and Caramelized Onion Tart

Green Bean and Mushroom Tart
Simple sauteed green beans, mushrooms and onions has to be one of my favourite side dishes but it is always nice to change things up and to use that fabulous combo in other dishes! I recently came across the idea of using the combo in a green bean and mushroom tart on A Spicy Persective and of course I just had to try it. I have been enjoying the ease and simplicity of puff pastry tarts for a while now and you really cannot get much easier that rolling out some puff pastry, topping it with your favourite toppings and baking it for a few minutes in the oven! For this particular tart we are topping it with blanched green beans and caramelized mushrooms and onions. Of course it is always nice to have something on your tart to hep the other ingredients stick to it as you eat and some blue cheese works wonderfully well with green beans and mushrooms on this tart!

Green Bean and Mushroom Tart
This tart works well as an appetizer or even a light meal!

Crazy question..if you cut your puff pastry in half what do you do with it? Layer them on top of each other?

Delicous combo, Kevin. I used Marsala wine for a little more oomph. LOVE your recipes!

Chele said...

Oops, left off the fact that I used gruyere, since I was out of blue cheese, and that's why I added the Marsala wine. I'm pretty sure blue cheese and Marsala would be overkill - but you already know this, since you used white wine to begin with 😊

That's a gorgeous tart! Love the bean and mushroom combo. Normally wouldn't think of pairing them together on a tart.
Glad to have discovered your blog!

oh this looks so yummy and perfect for a quick light meal!
It's on my shopping list!

Anonymous: I cut the puff pastry in half so that I would have 2 tarts that were both as wide as the green beans. You could leave it in one big square and have two rows of green beans on it or even just scatter the green beans on it rather than neatly ordering them.

Looks so good! Going to make this!
