Beef, Mushroom and Chevre Puff Pastry Tart

Store bought pastry makes this savoury tart a simple, family-friendly meal. Blending mushrooms into the ground meat mixture means lower calories, but a lot more flavour!


Store bought packet of puff pastry
400 grams grounds beef
400 grams mushrooms, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp. olive oil
100gms Chevre (goats cheese)
Bunch of fresh thyme


Add a splash of olive to a heavy base fry pan on medium high heat. Add 400 grams ground beef, pinch of salt, 400 grams finely chopped mushrooms and 3 Tbsp. Dijon mustard. Continue to cook off for another 2 mins. Remove from heat and set aside.

Slice store bought puff pastry into 5 to 6 inch squares and place on a parchment lined baking tray. Brush side inch or so of each square with olive oil. This will help crisp it up. Add a couple of Tbsps. of mushroom mixture onto each pastry square. Add a few knobs of Chevre to each tart, then a few sprigs of fresh thyme. Bake for 425F for 10 to 15mins or until golden. Remove, slice into halves and drizzle with a little olive oil.
