Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 red onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp light brown soft sugar
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 aubergine, sliced into 6-7mm thick rounds
  • 1 x 500g pack all-butter puff pastry
  • 1 x 90g jar chargrilled red pepper paste
  • 150g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 25g pine nuts
  • basil leaves, to garnish

Step by step

Get ahead
The tarts can be fully assembled up to a day ahead and chilled until ready to bake.
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a pan, add the red onions; cook, covered, for 10 minutes over a medium heat, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid, add the sugar, balsamic vinegar and seasoning, then cook over a higher heat for 5 minutes, stirring, until caramelised. Tip onto a plate to cool. Preheat a griddle pan until hot.
  2. Meanwhile, brush the aubergine slices with the rest of the olive oil and griddle, in batches, for 3-4 minutes each side or until tender. Remove to a plate.
  3. Roll out the pastry to a rectangle measuring 24cm x 36cm, then cut out 6 x 12cm discs, using a small plate as a template. Transfer the discs to a lined baking sheet. Spread each with 2 teaspoons of the red pepper paste, leaving a 1cm border.
  4. Divide the caramelised onions between the tarts; top with half the feta and pile on the aubergine slices. Top with the rest of the feta and the pine nuts.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Bake the tarts for 25 minutes until the pastry is puffed and golden. Cover with foil for the final 10 minutes. Scatter with basil leaves; serve with salad and new potatoes.
