Caramelised onion and feta tarts

Serves   12
Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 30 mins

Add some colour and finesse to entertaining with these delicious, and dead simple bite-sized tarts.

  • Tarts
  • Onion
  • Vegetarian




  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 savoury pastry shells
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes
  • 150g feta cheese
  • Fresh thyme leaves + extra to serve


1. Heat the oil in a large frypan over low heat. Add the onions and a good pinch of salt and cook slowly for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

2. When the onions are soft and starting to turn a light golden brown, add the balsamic and sugar. Continue to cook over a low heat for a further 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sticky and caramelised.

3. Stir through a small handful of thyme leaves and remove from heat. Season with black pepper and set aside.

4. To prepare the tarts, place the empty cases out on a work surface. Using 2 teaspoons, almost fill the cases with some caramelised onion. Top each tart with tomato pieces and a good crumble of feta cheese.

5. Finish with a sprinkle of thyme leaves and set on a platter to serve.
