I absolutely love creating mushroom puff pastry tarts in my kitchen. This delightful dish combines the earthy flavors of mushrooms with the buttery, flaky goodness of puff pastry. Whether it’s a cozy night in or a special occasion, this tart never fails to impress.


  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • 2 cups of mixed mushrooms (such as cremini, shiitake, and oyster), sliced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of gruyere cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, and sauté until softened.
  3. Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook until they are golden brown and any liquid has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Roll out the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface and place it on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the pastry, leaving a border around the edges.
  6. Spoon the cooked mushrooms over the cheese and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is golden and the cheese is bubbly.
  8. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with fresh parsley, and let it cool slightly before slicing.
