Caramelised Onion and Feta Tart

My friends, Emily and Tim had given me a Bill Granger cookbook (Best of Bill The Ultimate Collection of Bill Granger’s recipes) for a present a few years back and I have been drooling over this tart recipe ever since. I finally got around to making it this week and I am so glad that I did as the combination worked a treat and it was full of flavour! I modified the recipe from the original as I wanted to use rocket plus I also wanted the feta to be slightly melted as opposed to the version in the book, where you top the tart with feta after taking it out of the oven.

I know that the option of ‘Meatless Monday’ is popular these days and I try to stick to that as a plan each week by having a vegetarian or vegan option to start the nights of the working week off. This was a perfect choice for that.

I was surprised how filling the tart is as it doesn’t have a lot of bulk to it, but it was very satisfying.

Brisvegas is doing this thing where it is a little bit cold then warms up, then gets cool again, it is hard to keep up. A tart seems like the perfect cold, but not freezing comfort food.  The best thing is the sun is usually always shining, thank goodness!

So I haven’t started doing soups to soothe the winter blues yet, but I think that is on the cards in the next few days, stay tunes and have a great weekend!
