Mushroom, fetta and mint tart
Prep Time : 0:10 | Cook Time : 0:45 | Total Time : 0:55 | Serving : 4 person.


  • 3 sheets frozen reduced-fat puff pastry, partially thawed

  • 60g butter

  • 500g button mushrooms, halved

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/4 cup pure cream

  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped

  • 60g low-fat feta, crumbled

  • Baby rocket, to serve

  • Extra fresh mint leaves, to serve


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 220C/200C fan-forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

  • Step 2

    Place 1 pastry sheet on each prepared tray. Cut 8 x 3cm-wide strips from remaining pastry sheet. Place 1 strip along 1 edge of pastry square on each tray. Repeat with remaining strips, overlapping at the corners, to form a border. Using a sharp knife, score pastry squares along inside of the borders. Lightly score pastry centres at 1cm intervals.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. If pastry puffs up in centre, gently push down with a folded tea towel. Set aside.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add mushroom and oregano. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until mushroom is coated in butter. Add garlic. Cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Cover pan. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until mushroom has softened. Remove lid. Cook for a further 5 minutes or until liquid has almost evaporated. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Set aside to cool slightly.

  • Step 5

    Whisk eggs, cream and mint in a jug. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon 1/2 the mushroom mixture into the centre of 1 pastry square. Pour over 1/2 the egg mixture. Top with 1/2 the fetta. Repeat with remaining pastry square, mushroom mixture, egg mixture and fetta.

  • Step 6

    Reduce oven to 200C/180C fan-forced. Bake tarts for 20 minutes or until filling is set and cheese is golden. Stand for 5 minutes. Serve with rocket and extra mint leaves.
