As we say goodbye to summer and send out a hearty welcome to fall, there’s no better time to heat up your oven. Fresh summertime ingredients are still in abundance and the itch to bake is starting to well, get a bit itchier! So, I’ve created a delightfully decadent entrée that is sure to satisfy all your seasonal needs. Featuring a BLENDABELLA Portabello Mushroom Blend, fresh vegetables, and cheeses, say hello to my Rustic Tuscan Mushroom Tart.
The thing I love most about this recipe is that the end product is a fancy, complicated-looking entrée, but it’s actually quite easy to make. But just in case you need a little extra guidance, let’s walk through the steps together. Preheat the oven to 450°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lay out the sliced baby portabello mushrooms on the sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Place in the oven for 10 minutes to roast. Remove from the oven and set aside. Keep the oven heated.
Roll out the pre-made pie crust dough into a rectangular shape and grease a tart pan (either 10×13″ or 14×4.5″). Press the dough into the pan and remove any excess with a knife. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the BLENDABELLA Rustic Tuscan Portabello Mushroom Blend, cream cheese, sour cream, gouda, and egg. I love using BLENDABELLA Rustic Tuscan for this recipe because it has all the delicious flavor needed to finish the dish. A blend of diced portabella, vegetables, and herbs, it is a delicious jar to have in your cooking arsenal.
Pour the mixture into the tart shell and spread evenly.
Top the tart with the roasted baby portabello mushrooms and fresh zucchini spirals.
Place in the oven and bake for approximately 20 – 25 minutes (or until the top and crust is golden brown). Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, and serve hot. Enjoy!
And that’s it, my friends! A delicious farewell to summertime ingredients and a hearty welcome to autumn.
