There is something about the combination of Dates and Goat Cheese that I just adore. The sweet with the tang and creaminess, it just works together.
This gorgeous recipe combines these flavors along with crunchy Pistachios and earthy Oyster Mushrooms all laying upon buttery Puff Pastry.
1 Sheet of Puff Pastry
1 Organic Egg
1/2-3/4 Cup Organic or Local Goat Cheese
1/3 Cup Oyster Mushrooms, wiped clean with a dish towel, then chopped
6-8 Dates, Chopped into pieces
Handful of Pistachios
Sea Salt and Pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degress
Cut a pre rolled 9 x 9 sheet of Puff Pastry in to 6 pieces. Brush with egg wash and lay the pieces on a parchment paper covered baking sheet.
Chop the chives and sprinkle on the puff pastry. Then combine the Goat Cheese, Mushrooms, Egg, Salt and Pepper and put a few tablespoons of the mixture onto each of the pieces of pastry. Then a layer of chopped pistachios, dates and pistachios again.
Bake for 15-16 minutes until the edges of the pastry is puffed and golden brown.
Serve warm with a beautiful salad and a glass of wine
