My Hungry Husband

I love food that is simple and rustic (and requires minimal effort of course). This tart looks awesome, can be customized to suit any combination of ingredients and looks like you put some serious effort in the kitchen.

Caramelized Onion, Tomato & Feta Tart


  • 1 roll Today puff pastry, defrosted thoroughly overnight
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2-3 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 Tb butter for cooking onion
  • 30ml brown vinegar
  • 1 Tb brown sugar
  • mini Italian tomatoes, halved
  • 2 blocks of feta cheese (you can use cream cheese instead, I used this feta & egg white mixture to incorporate some protein into this tart. It was a happy accident as I did not have cream cheese and wanted to make creamed feta)
  • 2 egg whites (* retain egg yolks for egg wash)


  1. In a roasting tray/dish, line with greaseproof paper.
  2. Lightly spray with spray and cook.
  3. Un-roll the pastry onto the greaseproof paper. Cut the edges off, then paste them back on with water to create a boarder around the pastry. Using a fork make holes all over the pastry, so it does not rise.
  4. To make the caramelized onion, melt the butter in a frying pan. Add onions, thyme, brown vinegar, brown sugar. Cook on a low – medium heat. You do not want crispy onions but soft caramelized ones. Keep aside to cool. Remove the thyme stalks as the leaves would have fallen off during cooking.
  5. To assemble: I made the creamed feta by blending 2 blocks of feta cheese with 2 egg whites. Spread this over your rolled out pastry.
  6. Spread the caramelized onion all over the feta mixture, top with halved tomatoes and sprinkle more thyme over the tart.
  7. Add some water to your egg yolks and brush the pastry boarder with the egg wash.
  8. Bake at 180deg Celsius for 40-45 minutes.
  9. The pastry should be a light golden color. Carefully take the tart out of the pan and cool on a cooling rack.
  10. Slice and enjoy!


You can serve this tart hot or cold, drizzle some olive oil over the tart before serving. It gives it a nice gloss. If you want you can serve this with a rocket salad and have it as a light meal. Or sprinkle some rocket leaves over the whole tart and drizzle with balsamic glaze. The possibilities are endless.
