Recipe For Onion And Tomato Tart With Puff Pastry

For ready steady cook  my starter was a simple onion tart.  With my list of ingredients it seemed to me the obvious choice. It would also be the first time I was using the techniques involved with the puff pastry – and it really led on to my main course.

Onion and Tomato Tart


  • 15 g butter *
  • 15 mls olive oil *
  • 1/2 an onion sliced
  • 5 mls sugar * - I used fructose
  • 2.5 mls cumin *
  • 5 mls paprika *
  • puff pastry
  • fresh basil
  • cherry tomatoes taken from a tin of cherry tomatoes - drained *


  • Preheat the oven to 180° Celsius
  • melt the butter in a frying pan and add the olive oil
  • add the onions and the fructose and cook for 2 minutes
  • then add the cumin and paprika and fry gently until the onions are completely cooked
  • lay your puff pastry on a lined baking sheet
  • make an incision around the edge, about 1/2cm in - making sure not to cut through to the bottom of the pastry
  • using a fork prick the inner section of the pastry to ensure it does not puff
  • layer the onions into the inner section
  • then some torn basil
  • add the cherry tomatoes (I will use more if I make it again)
  • bake for 20 minutes
  • serve and enjoy!
