Asparagus and mushroom tart


  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Spread the tart dough on the bottom and sides of a 20x30 cm rectangular tart pan and cut off the dough overhanging from the pan.
  • The best preparation for the asparagus is to steam them just enough to cook them but still be a little crunchy, about 3-5 minutes. You can also boil them in a generous amount of salted water, just until they become tender. Drain and set aside until needed.
  • Finely chop the onion and garlic. Cut the mushroom in to 2 cm slices.
  • Place a pan over medium heat and let it get very hot.
  • Add the butter, onions and mushrooms and sauté for 5-6 minutes, until they soften and lose their liquid.
  • Add the asparagus and garlic to the pan and sauté for 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from pan and allow mixture to cool. Then, spread over tart shell.
  • In a bowl, add the heavy cream, eggs, basil, salt, pepper and turmeric. Lightly whisk until incorporated.
  • Place the tart pan in the oven and carefully pour the egg mixture into the pan.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes until the filing thickens. (The center may be a little runny but it will thicken as it cools.)
  • When ready, remove from oven, allow to cool a little and serve.
