Impress your friends with this exclusive recipe from Larissa Takchi.

 

Perfect for an outdoor picnic spread on a sunny day or a cheese and wine night with some friends. Here is Larissa’s twist on an old classic.

Ingredients
• 150g caster sugar
• 75g unsalted butter
• 30g white miso paste
• 4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
• 6 -7 shallot onions, peeled and cut in half lengthways
• 375g butter puff pastry, cut into a rough circle (keep chilled)
• Bee pollen honey
• 3 sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves picked
• Goat cheese
• Sea salt, to taste
• Lavender, to garnish
Method
1
Preheat the oven to 200C.
2
In an ovenproof dry medium pan over medium high heat, cook the sugar until melted to a dark amber colour. Add the butter and carefully stir until melted through. Add the apple cider vinegar and the miso paste and whisk to combine.
3
Bring to a simmer and add the onions cut face down. Reduce the heat to medium and cook the onions for 10 minutes until lightly softened.
4
Drape the pastry over the pan, tuck the sides in and prick with a fork all over. Place the pan in the oven and bake for approximately 25 to 30mins or until pastry is lightly golden brown.
5
Allow the tart to settle for 5 minutes before turning out onto the serving platter, drizzle honey all over whilst the tart is still warm.
6
Allow the tart to cool down before sprinkling with thyme and sea salt and adding pieces of goats cheese on top. Garnish with lavender.
Best served with a fresh side salad. Serves 6.
