I love onions – especially when they’re slowly cooked and caramelised. This recipe has a lot of onions, 700 grams in fact. It was a bit painful to chop them up small; I had to take regular breaks and wipe my eyes. But the end product was worth it.
The pastry is a wholewheat cheese pastry and the filling is simply caramelised onions, eggs, cream and a bit of cheese. My only complaint is that it was too small! It only just fed 4 adults and two onion-phobic Munchkins. (The Munchkins were bribed with the promise of Easter chocolate afterwards). Next time, I would make a bigger tart, but that would mean chopping almost a kilo and a half of onions… But, I’d say it’s probably worth it!
And here is Delia Smith’s Thick Onion Tart recipe.
OK, I must eat some Easter chocolate now.
