Meat Free Monday… Caramelised Onion and Goats Cheese Tarts.

Another manic Monday here, looking forward to dinner.

I made some caramelised onions last week (Homemade Christmas Hamper Treats ๐ŸŽ„)ย so to use them, I thought a Caramelised Onion and Goats Cheese Tart would be nice, with boiled new potatoes and a salad.

I am cheating slightly, by using Aldi ready made puff pastry, it makes it quicker for me, and uses another part of the freezer stash.

This is so simple, it’s barely a recipe, more guidance ๐Ÿ˜„ I start by cutting a strip off of the pastry roll about 6 inches deep, then cut that into 2 rectangles. Lay onto a lined oven tray.

Slice the Goats cheese and place the slices on top of the onion base – I add a sprinkle of fresh thyme leave and a pinch of ground black pepper, with a slight shake of olive oil.

Put your potatoes onto boil till tender, put the tarts into a preheated oven at 200 for 20-30 minutes till golden and bubbling, then leave to cool for a few minutes.

Serveย with buttered new potatoes and a big green salad – Yum…..

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
