Mushroom Cabbage Tart

Remember my cabbage saga?  I made some delicious recipes, but I forgot to share one with you.   Originally a free-form galette, I took a different route to test out my new tart pan ;)

I liked the tart as-is, but I think I might play around even more next time, leaving the hard-boiled egg from the filling and instead serve topped with a poached egg!

Mushroom Cabbage Tart
adapted from Smitten Kitchen
Serves 4-8, depending on what else you serve with it

The filling can also be prepped ahead of time and refrigerated until you're ready to assemble the tart.

For the crust:
1/2c oat flour (1/2c rolled oats, ground in a spice/coffee grinder or food processor)
1/2c spelt flour
1/4c ground flax seed
1/2t salt
.6oz gruyere, finely grated
2T coconut oil, melted
1/4c milk

For the filling:
2T butter
1 lg onion, finely diced
4oz shiitake, destemmed and caps diced
1/2t dried thyme
1T chopped fresh basil
1t dried dill
6c thinly sliced napa cabage
1t salt
1/2c water
fresh ground pepper
1/4c chopped parsley
1 hard-boiled egg, chopped
1/4c greek yogurt
1t vinegar (I think I used cider vinegar?)

Preheat oven to 400deg.

For the tart shell, mix together flours, flax, salt and gruyere.  Add coconut oil and milk, stir until mixture becomes crumbly.  Press into tart pan (a springform would also work) and bake in preheated oven for 20min.  Remove and place on a cooling rack.

I followed Deb's instructions for the filling, so check out her recipe.  Bake in preheated 400deg oven for 25min, until filling is lightly browned.  I served it with some horseradish mustard that I had been meaning to try, but you can make your own horseradish sauce if you'd like.

I really need a tart pan.

I love finding new ways to use cabbage! This sounds great.

I love how fancy tarts always look! I bought a cabbage to make borscht - I bet I'll have some leftovers... maybe I'll turn them into this tart. Sounds like everything I love in one! :)

When I saw the title I didn't know what to expect but that looks delicious. I love cabbage.

Reeni said...

I love cabbage - this is one way I haven't eaten it! Delicious!

Joanne said...

I love this in tart form! It would definitely get me to eat both my cabbage and my mushrooms, neither of which are serious favorites of mine.

I really, really like the idea of a cabbage tart. Esp with shitake mushrooms...the tart dough is a bit funky for me though. I don't have 80% of the ingredients, but I suppose I can just use regular dough?

This savory tart looks super interesting! I think a poached egg on top would be PERFECT!

Christine said...

Ooh, this sounds incredibly good. The crust look great and I like the ingredients. I'd actually like to eat this tart with a poached egg for breakfast!

Kelly said...

This sounds very creative hun. I love, love, love my tart pans. It's been awhile since I have pulled them out. I may need to remedy that.

Biz said...

I wish I liked mushrooms - turned out good though!

Have a great weekend Shannon!

I like this. Cabbage is so inexpensive. It's amazing how you can turn this simple ingredient into something that looks so elegant! Good job my dear :)

Tart baking can be so versatile with the fillings. New things for me to learn.

Kerstin said...

Oof, a tart pan! That's one of those things that *in theory* is on my wishlist, but I never remember to ask for one. Maybe it's time for me to just treat myself :-)

Your crust recipe is really interesting! I guess the flax helps to bind everything together? I'll have to try this one, too. While I enjoy a traditional buttery pastry, I'm always more intrigued by alternative recipes for crust.
