Asparagus Mushroom Shallot Flatbread

This asparagus, mushroom shallot flatbread is crispy, chewy flatbread and covered in bubbly brie! Goes perfectly with a fresh arugula salad and wine.

This is the result of cleaning out the fridge.

Spring Vegetable Flatbread l www.SimplyScratch.com #recipe

I basically scoured my pathetically empty produce drawer and came out with asparagus and mushrooms… I just threw in the shallot for funsies. The best part? I got to eat this all. by. myself. It’s such a shame that no one in my house will eat anything that has or is currently touching mushrooms. So sad for them… and yaaaay! more for me!!

Do you ever just crave a pizza but want to skip the red sauce? {please tell me I’m not a lone on this boat}. I do love pizza sauce {trust me} and there’s a life altering recipe on this here blog, but sometimes I want a pizza {errr flatbread} that is simple, light and goes perfectly with a glass of crisp, chilled white wine. Know what I mean?

This springy flatbread is just the ticket.

There’s a million and one things you can do with asparagus and I particularly love them grilled, roasted, in quiche, made into “fries” and now… under brie cheese and on my flatbread pizza.

What’s that? You love asparagus toooo? Best friends for life.

Now let’s do this.

Spring Vegetable Flatbread l www.SimplyScratch.com asparagus

Start by thinly slicing 5-6 asparagus tips. If you have a mandolin, go on and shave them… I find slicing them this way, by knife, is way easier and I get to keep my fingertips. Win-win.

Slice up 3-4 mushrooms. I’m using cremini or baby portabellas… they’re my fave, but really any mushrooms are fine.

You’ll also need one large shallot, sliced vertically. Leeks would also work splendidly here… just slice thin, rinse in cool water to loosen any grit, drain, pat dry with paper towel and that’s it.

I totally dig brie cheese on my flatbread.

I’ve used it before, but this time I kept it simple by slicing it thin and not bothering to remove its edible wax coating. I’m all about saving time, my friends. Save time = wine time… sooner.

On a rimmed sheet pan, drizzle a good amount of olive oil… about 2 tablespoons.

Earlier I made a double batch of my flatbread dough. One for me and one for the rest of my family.

Once raised, punch it down to deflate the dough and then roll it out thin on a floured surface.

So somewhere in between rolling the dough out and arranging the toppings I must have forgotten to take pictures. Lucky for you {and me} the steps are super simple and you’re not really missing much. After you’ve stretched the dough out, drizzle with a little more olive oil over top, scatter with the slice asparagus, mushrooms and shallots. Arrange the brie cheese in a complete obsessive compulsive manner {just kidding that’s just me} and sprinkle kosher salt, black pepper… that’s it. OH! You can also drizzle more olive oil over top before baking if you wish to. I did.

Pop it into a preheated 500 degree oven to bake for about 15-18 minutes or until the crust is a deep golden and the cheese is a bubblin’. Watch it like a hawk so it won’t burn.

Cut. Serve. Inhale. Repeat.

This spring-y flatbread makes for an excellent appetizer, snack or serve it up with a fresh salad and call it dinner. I would also call it a masterpiece.

Enjoy!

    I am intrigued by the brie. Must try soon. As for people who refuse to try things because they don’t like one ingredient? Well, you can miss out on a lot in life that way.

    The only way this could possibly be improved would be to finish it off with a drizzle of balsamic reduction when it emerges from the oven. I make a similar flatbread pizza with fresh asparagus and mushrooms, and the. Balsamic reduction adds a nice bit of sweet ness at the end! Keep these great recipes coming- you are my go-to source when I need a crowd pleaser, thanks!!

    As for the person who doesn’t like Brie- no recipe is written in stone for goodness sakes!! Get creative and substitute a cheese of your liking.
