Onions seem to do well in my garden. They like me.
It's a no fail crop for us.
We grow 3 types of onions, yellow, white and red.
Besides make onion jam, what am I going to do with all these onions?
Well, I made a red onion tart with the surplus and I highly recommend you make this too.
It's so easy, with just 4 ingredients......frozen puff pastry, red onions, olives and feta cheese.
This is a great weeknight dinner with a salad, or a special appetizer for a party.
Watch this disappear.
Red Onion, Olive & Feta Tart (adapted from BBC Good Food):
1 sheet of defrosted frozen puff pastry, rolled out
3 large red onions, sliced thin
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp muscovado sugar (the grainy stuff)
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
pinch of kosher salt
handful of kalamata olives, sliced lengthwise
a few tbsp of crumbled feta cheese
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a medium, heavy skillet, heat the oil and butter and cook the red onions slices for about 10 minutes on low heat.
After 10 minutes, add in the sugar and balsamic vinegar. Cook another 5 minutes, the mixture will be nice and syrupy. Add in a pinch of kosher salt while cooking. Let mixture cool.
Roll out the puff pastry and lay it on a baking sheet lined w/ parchment paper.
Spread the cooled caramelized onions over the puff pastry evenly.
Dot with olives and sprinkle with feta cheese.
Now you are ready to bake!
Bake 15 minutes until puffed and golden.
Cut into squares and serve w/ some arugula on top.
