Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Slice the chestnut mushrooms finely


Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chopped garlic and sliced chestnut mushrooms with a pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 min or until golden


Top, tail and slice the leek[s] finely into rounds, then wash carefully to remove any grit

Cut the red onion[s] into 6 [12] wedges

Once the mushrooms are golden, remove the pan from the heat and add the soft cheese with half the cider vinegar

Season with a grind of black pepper and stir it all together – this is your creamy mushroom mixture


Meanwhile, line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper

Unroll the puff pastry and cut it into 2 [4] squares

Add the pastry squares to the tray and score a 1cm border around the edge of the pastry with a knife

Tip: The pastry border will puff up to give you a nice crust!


Spread the creamy mushroom mixture over the pastry squares (keep it within the borders!)

Layer the sliced leek over the top and season with a grind of black pepper and a pinch of salt


Add the onion wedges to the tray around the pastry

Put the tray in the oven and cook for 15-18 min or until the pastry is cooked through, puffed up and golden and the leeks are lightly charred – these are your leek & mushroom tarts


Whilst the tarts are in the oven, slice the apple[s] into matchsticks (skin on)

Combine the remaining cider vinegar with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil and a pinch of salt and black pepper – this is your dressing

Add the rocket, apple matchsticks and walnuts to a bowl with the dressing and give everything a gentle mix up – this is your apple & walnut salad
