Caramalised Balsamic Onion and Goat’s Cheese Tart

Caramalised balsamic onion and goats cheese tart text

With goat’s cheese in the fridge and my night to cook dinner I decided to make this easy and simple dish that is perfect for a nice light meal. The sweetness of the caramalised balsamic onions balances with the slight bite of the goat’s cheese that I picked up at the local food festival. The flaky filo pastry along with the creamy filling makes for a comforting, easy meal.

Caramalised Balsamic Onion and Goat’s Cheese Tart

Ingredients-

1 red onion

1 clove of garlic

6 tbs butter

1/2 tsp brown sugar

4 tbs balsamic vinegar

200g semi-hard goat’s cheese (I used Sunhill’s Chevrolin)

150g creamy ricotta

4 sheets filo pastry

 

Method-

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Thinly slice red onion and garlic. Fry the onion over medium heat in 2 tbs of butter until soft. Add garlic. Add balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Stir frequently over a low heat until caramalised. Remove from heat.

Melt remaining butter and brush over two sheets of filo pastry. Repeat for the second half of the pastry and place over the top of the first. Cut in half to make two long rectangles. Layer these on top so there are now 8 layers of filo. Place the base on a lined baking tray. Crumble ricotta over leaving 1cm from the edges. Add the caramelised onion. Cut the goats cheese into cubes and sprinkle over the top. Fold in the short edges. Bake in oven for 30 minutes.

Serve with fresh rocket and cherry tomatoes.
