It’s so easy to fall into that dull routine of repeating the same meals, week after week. And who can blame us? Life is hectic and you haven’t always got time to try and find a new meal, but thats where we want to help!


With our #mealoftheweek series, we have challenged ourselves to try and create a new dish in the kitchen each week to expand our foodie horizons with plenty of delicious recipes. To kick it all off we are bringing you something very apt for the change in season as we approach the colder months. It is the warm and delicious goat’s cheese, roasted sweet potato and caramelised red onion tart.


Ingredients:

  • 3 red onions
  • 4-5 sweet potatoes
  • 120g goat’s cheese
  • 600g puff pastry
  • olive oil
  • cranberry and port sauce
  • cider vinegar
  • crushed chillies seasoning
  • egg
  • thyme seasoning
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

Step 1) Finely slice your red onions and fry them in olive oil for approximately 20 minutes until they are soft and turning brown.

Step 2) Whilst the onions are frying, turn your attention to your sweet potatoes. Peel and chop into small chunks.

Step 3) Toss your sweet potato chunks around in a bowl with some olive oil, salt, pepper and some crushed chilli flakes. Then spread them evenly on a baking tray and put in the oven for approximately 25 minutes. Remember to shuffle them in the middle and by the end they should be soft and browning.

Step 4) Now turn your attention back to those onions which should be lovely soft and starting to brown at this point. Here you add in 100g of cranberry and port sauce alongside 5 tbsp of cider vinegar. Mix together and continue to fry on a low heat until the liquid is gone.

Step 5) Roll out the puff pastry and lay it out as the base inside the baking tray. At this point, don’t repeat the same mistake I made and forget to check whether you have any baking parchment paper in your cupboard. Otherwise, you will have to attempt something makeshift with cake tin lining paper – see for yourself how that turned out!

Step 6) Now take your caramelised onions off the heat and spread evenly across the pastry base. Be sure to leave a little room at the edges for later. Then break up the goat’s cheese into chunks and spread it across the base too.

Step 7) Next, add the roasted sweet potato chunks on top and then sprinkle some more goat’s cheese on to fill in any gaps that you can see. We want lots of flavour in every bite of this dish!

Step 8) Beat an egg and then glaze the visible parts of the pastry all around the edges. At last, place the whole thing in the oven and cook for 30 minutes at 180°C / 200°C, or until the pastry looks golden and yummy.

Step 9) For final touches, add some thyme seasoning, then just slice it up and serve. There we have it, a lovely, tasty, goat’s cheese, roasted sweet potato and caramelised onion tart – enjoy!
