INGREDIENTS

Caramelised Onions
3 onions, cut in half and thinly sliced
2 Tbsp butter
Drizzle of oil
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp brown sugar
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar

Tart
350g puff pastry approx. 30x20cm
1 block blue cheese, crumbled (food snob 150g)
1 bunch thyme, leaves picked

METHOD

Preheat oven to 220°C.

  1. Prep & cook onions. Thinly slice onions. Heat butter in a pot with oil on high heat. Add onions and salt and cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until very soft.
  2. After 10 minutes, add brown sugar and red wine vinegar and cook for 5 more minutes, stirring often, until golden brown. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. While onions cook, prep tart. Cut pastry down the center so you end up with two 30x10cm long tarts. Use a small sharp knife to score a cm border around the pastry only cutting down halfway into the pastry. Prick center with a fork and once onions are cooked, divide between tart staying within the border.
  4. Finish tart. Crumble blue cheese over onions and sprinkle over thyme. Bake in center oven for 15-20 minutes, until pastry has puffed around the edges and is golden brown. Cool on tray for 5 minutes before slicing.
