Fay Ripley smoky cheese and onion tart

Makes: 4

Ingredients:

  • a splash of olive oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and fi nely sliced
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves, roughly chopped
  • 180g (6óoz) smoked Cheddar, e.g. Applewood, grated
  • 200mI (7fl oz) half-fat crème fraîche
  • 320g (11óoz) pack ready rolled
  • shortcrust pastry (or homemade)

Method:

  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the sliced onion until soft and starting to go golden at the edges, about 10 minutes. Throw in the thyme leaves and transfer to a large bowl along with the grated cheese and crème fraîche. Add some black pepper and mix well.
  3. Unroll the pastry onto a lined baking tray. Fold over the edges of the pastry, 1cm (óin) in, all the way around to give the tart an edge. Use a fork to press it into place and mark the border.
  4. Spread the cheesy mix over the base of the tart and scatter with the tomato halves.
  5. Allow to cool slightly and serve on a big wooden board with a crisp green salad.
