I have decided to put up some summery recipes. I don't care if it's only 9oC outside; it's summer in my head and no one ever said you had to eat summery food just in summer. I think.
So this is a recipe that is perfect for eating with salad, and can be eaten warm or cold, and is delicious! It's also really simple to make, and does take a while but is one of the easiest recipes ever considering the results.
- 6 small/medium onions (I used white, but have used red before and they work equally well).
- 50g unsalted butter.
- 200g puff pastry.
- 120g taleggio cheese.
- Thyme (however much you see fit!)
- Flour for rolling out pastry.
- A big greased rectangular tray/ lightly floured baking sheet (both the size of your pastry).
- A large frying pan.
- A chopping board
- A sharp knife.
- A rolling pin.
- A wooden spoon.
- Goggles (optional).
1. Peel and chop your onions up into thick segments, or whatever size you prefer.
2. Melt your butter in the frying pan on a low heat, and then add the onions in.
3. The onions will cook for about half an hour, so whilst cooking slice your cheese up and break into smaller pieces, and roll your pastry out to no thicker than a 10p coin. Prick the pastry all over with a fork.
4. Preheat the oven to 220oC/gas 7.
5. When the onions are translucent, golden and slightly sticky tip them onto your pastry and spread out.
6. Make small lines as a border around the edge of the pastry.
7. Put the cheese amongst/over the onions, and break the thyme over.
8. Put the tart in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the pastry is puffing up and the onions beginning to brown.
So this is honestly the most delicious tart ever, and I hope you all make it too! If you do please Instagram me your pictures (@fuchsiaforest)!
