Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 yellow onion (~350g)
  • 400g butternut squash
  • 20mL olive oil (~18.3g)
  • 350g chestnuts, frozen
  • 2 cloves garlic (~12g)

  • ½tsp dried rosemary (~0.5g)
  • ½tsp dried thyme (~0.5g)

Method

  1. Peel and dice the onion and squash (approx. 1cm pieces), discarding any seeds. 400g squash was about half the squash.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and then fry the onion and squash until softened, about 10 minutes on a medium heat.
  3. Add the frozen chestnuts and fry for another 5 minutes, stirring regularly to prevent sticking.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F)
  5. Peel and dice the garlic and add to the pan. Dice the mushrooms and add to the pan. Fry for another 2 minutes along with the herbs.
  6. Meanwhile divide the pastry into 6 blocks and roll out (a square with sides about 15 - 20cm or 6 to 8").
  7. Place on a lightly oiled piece of baking parchment.
  8. Divide the mix between the 6 tartlets, placing in the middle of each one.
  9. Place in the oven for 15 to 25 minutes (until the pastry is flaky and slightly golden).
