A delicate filo shell holds caramelised red onion and melting goats cheese flavoured with thyme and garlic. Perfect as a dinner party starter.
  • 50 gram (2 ounce) butter

  • 2 small red onions, thinly sliced

  • 2 teaspoon brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tablespoons Dried Thyme

  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Granules

  • 2 sheets ready rolled filo pastry

  • 175 gram (12 ounce) goats cheese

  • 1 tablespoons olive oil


  • 1 Repeat with the remaining pastry and onions to make 4 tarts. Place a slice of cheese on top of the onions on each tart. Lightly brush the edges of the pastry with butter.
  • 2 Chill for 30 minutes. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the pastry is golden and the cheese is melting. Serve with a few rocket leaves.
  • 3 Pre-heat the oven to 220°C, 435°F, Gas Mark 7. Melt half the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onions and cook for 25-30 minutes until soft and golden. Stir in the sugar, balsamic vinegar, Thyme and Garlic Granules. Leave to cool.
  • 4 Melt the remaining butter. Unroll the pastry sheets and cut each one into four. In a patty tin, layer two quarters on top of each other, brushing lightly with butter between the sheets and on top. Spoon 1/4 of the onions into the centre and set aside.
