Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean mushrooms (best not using water) and cut in bite size chunks.
  2. Butter a 26cm dia. baking dish and place/fit puff pastry into it. Use cuts to form a 2 inch high rim. Perforate pastry using a fork and place in oven at 200°C for about 10 minute (I usually form a circle out of aluminium foil roughly fitting the baking dish's diameter and place it in the dish to prevent the pastry's sides from deforming and baking down).
  3. While the pastry is in the oven, melt 1 teaspoon of butter in a non stick pan and add minced onion and garlic (until translucent), add chanterelles and let roast (be careful not to burn the onion and garlic).
  4. Add white wine, stir.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste (you might want to season with a bit of vegetarian soup granulate, but do not overdo it) and stir in parsley.
  6. Let mushrooms cook until tender and the liquid has evaporated. Set aside and let cool.
  7. Mix creme fraiche, 2 eggs, parmesan and half of the mozzarella, salt and pepper until thick and creamy.
  8. Fill mushroom mix into baking dish, cover with egg-creme fraiche mixture and sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella.
  9. Bake at 175°C-200° for about 30min. until golden brown and egg mixture has set.
  10. Serve luke warm and enjoy!
