Balsamic onions

  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp (45 ml) balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp (45 ml) brown sugar
  • 1 sprig rosemary, roughly chopped
  • 400 g ready-rolled frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 3 Tbsp (45 ml) grated Parmesan
  • 1 x 200 g packet kalamata or black olives, pitted and halved
  • 100 g Chevin, cubed (or you can use goat’s feta or Danish feta)
  • ½ C (125 ml) fresh cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 180 ˚C in a convection oven or 200 ˚C in a conventional oven. Lightly grease a tart pan.

Place all the ingredients for the balsamic onions into a small pot and simmer for about 15 minutes until brown, soft and sticky. Keep to one side.

Line the greased tart pan with the pastry, prick a few holes on the base and sprinkle with half of the grated Parmesan. Spoon the balsamic onions onto the base and arrange the olives and goat’s cheese on top.

Whisk together the cream and eggs and season. Pour this over the onion, olive and cheese mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan and bake for 25 minutes.

Serve with a rocket, tomato and Parmesan salad.
