Recipe: Red Onion, Goats cheese and Red pepper Tart

Hey guys. So this is a delicious recipe, that at first i thought of it really as a storecupboard use-up, but it works out as a very tasty combination of ingredients. Its also very quick and easy, a bit of a 'cheats' recipe, only taking 10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook.

This recipe was published in "Take a Break My Favourite Recipes" magazine- and won me £25!

Red Onion and goats cheese tart (serves 3-4)

A sheet (rectangle) of ready rolled puff pastry
4-5tbsp red onion chutney
100g roasted red peppers (the ones you get in jars), sliced
15g baby capers
100g soft goats cheese
15g pine nuts
Sprinkling of fresh thyme leaves
Black pepper
1 egg (for egg wash)

1. Heat oven to 200C. Place pastry onto a baking sheet. Score (with a knife) a little border around the edges, and prick the middle to prevent it from rising.

2. Spread the chutney evenly over the middle. Top with all the other ingredients, brush egg round the sides, and put in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve with a nice green side salad, or new potatoes.


  1. Not really very original for a chef

  2. Not all my recipes are not supposed to be gourmet or 'chef-y', infact many of my recipes are designed to be tasty and easy to cook family meals. There will be a large range of simple and comforting recipes to complicated and beautiful 'dinner party' recipes as i continue with this blog, so watch this space.

  3. Well, it may not be an original recipe... but unless you're Heston Blumenthal what is? Looking at the pic and recipe has just solved the conundrum of Monday Lunch. I have some puff pastry from yesterday, half a packet of feta cheese and half a jar of Lidl's roasted red peppers (which are fantastically good value and I stock up with them whenever I'm in the UK as they're a pound cheaper in England than they are in France. Go figure. ...and breathe )

    Thanks Mel. :-)
