Hedgehog (Hedghog) Mushroom and Onion Tart

Hedgehog Mushroom and Onion Tart

It might be July but the mushrooms are back and gathered a lot of Hedgehog (Hedghog) fungus this weekend , so easy to recognise due to its spiney underside, its has a fantastic firm texture and a peppery taste . For a summer treat and trying to use up the mound of onions from the vegebox made a version of the traditional french onion tart to
be served with some warm green beans with vinagrette
