Ingredients

  • 1/2 pkg frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 1 pkg goat cheese cubed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup choped onion
  • 4 cups sliced mixed mushrooms shiitake, oyster, cremini and/or portobello, about 12 oz (375 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup light cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch each salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Method

On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry large enough to line bottom and side of 11-inch (28 cm) quiche dish or flan pan with removable bottom. Gently press pastry into pan; trim edges. Sprinkle evenly with goat cheese. Set aside.

In large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; sauté onion and mushrooms, stirring often, until liquid is evaporated, about 7 minutes. Add thyme and rosemary. Remove from heat and let cool slightly; spread over goat cheese.

In bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper and cayenne until frothy; pour evenly over mushroom mixture. Bake in bottom third of 400°F (200°C) oven until knife inserted in centre comes out clean and crust is golden, 35 to 40 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Reheat in 350°F/180°C oven for 20 to 25 minutes.) Sprinkle with parsley.
