HOW super cute is this tart? It would make the most darling centerpiece for your next brunch, amiright? It’s not technically a quiche, although it looks like one, there’s no cheese, no dairy at all actually. It has a layer of mushroom paste under the egg and extra mushrooms and greens on top. The tart crust is from an awesome coconut oil pie dough recipe that I use now for all my pie needs. It’s vegetarian/non dairy but could be transformed into whatever you would like.
Give it a whirl! The most time consuming part is making the mushroom paste but this recipe yields a lot and you can use the leftover for things like dips, pasta or dumplings. Or fried dumplings…like me. Mmmmm…fried. My tart pan is itsy bitsy so I had extra dough and mushroom paste.
- 5-6 cups oyster mushrooms (half a dozen reserved for topping)
- 1 cup olive oil (reserve a couple tablespoons for roasting)
- 1 cup soy or almond milk
- 10 cloves of garlic, medium
- salt and pepper to taste
crust and topping
- one recipe for coconut oil pie crust
- 1-2 eggs (depending on the size of your pie pan
- handful of greens
- salt + pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- Bake your raw pie crust in your chosen pan for 10-15 minutes with either pie beads or popcorn inside. Remove and let sit.
- Turn your oven to 450F.
- Place mushrooms and garlic on a baking sheet and drizzle with a few tablespoons olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 20-25 minutes until everything is golden brown. Reduce the oven temperature to 400F again.
- Put garlic and mushrooms in a food processor or blender. Taking turns with the oil and milk, slowly add to the mushrooms and blend until it makes a thick paste. Depending on how moist your mushrooms are, the amount of oil and milk you use will vary.
- Spread the mushroom paste into the bottom of the baked pie.
- Beat an egg with a tablespoon of water and pour over the mushroom paste.
- Add mushrooms and greens to the top. Add salt and pepper.
- In a 400F oven, bake until the egg is set. Will take about 10 minutes.
It looks super cute! Which program do you use to overlay text?!
Thank you! I use fotor.com to do my editing and text for the pictures. I’m not super tech savvy and fotor is really user friendly. If you download fonts onto your computer they will show up for use on Fotor. Their fonts are good but limited so I like to download my own. Pinterest is a great place to start looking for fonts if you need any. 🙂 Hope that helps!
Thank you! Have a good day!
