Cooking time: 30 minutes
These tartlets can be served as is, or you could add sautéed wild mushrooms or line the tartlet shells with a slice of tomato and some fresh herbs.
The tartlets can be served hot as a side vegetable (with the beef tenderloin medallions with caramelized onions for example) or as a cold hors d’oeuvre, served on lettuce leaves with a drizzle of vinaigrette.
