Caramelised Onion and Goat’s Cheese Tart


450g puff pastry

2 tbsp olive oil

1 large red onion, thinly sliced

3 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tsp soft brown sugar

150g goat’s cheese, diced

Salt and black pepper



1. Preheat oven to 220C (200C fan oven) gas mark 7. Line a baking tray with grease

proof paper.

2. Roll out pastry to a rectangle measuring approximately 25 x 30 cm, then transfer the

pastry to the lined baking tray. Prick the pastry all over with a fork.

3. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then add the onion, vinegar, sugar and a sprinkling of salt

and pepper. Cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes, until the

onions have softened and browned slightly. Spread the caramelised onion evenly

over the pastry.

4. Scatter the diced goat’s cheese over the onion, then bake the tart in the oven for

about 30 minutes, until the edges of the pastry are golden brown. Remove from the

oven and serve warm, or leave to cool.
