    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 2 large red onion, trimmed at the root and cut into thin wedges
  • 2 tbsp light muscovado sugar
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
    Balsamic vinegar

    True Balsamic vinegar is an artisan product from Modena, in Emilia Romagna, Italy, and is made…

  • 375g sheet ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 100g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 175g black olive, pitted and chopped
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then gently fry the onions for about 10 mins until golden and soft. Add the sugar and balsamic vinegar, then cook for a further 5 mins until the juices are reduced and syrupy. Leave to cool.

  2. Unroll the puff pastry onto a baking tray. Score a line a finger-width in from the edge all the way around, then cover the middle with the onion mix. Scatter the feta and olives over. Season and drizzle the extra virgin olive oil over the topping.

  3. Bake for 15 mins or until the pastry is risen and golden and the base is crisp. Cut into wedges and serve with a green salad.

I love easy starters which look good when guests come. This looked great and - even better- it tasted great. Everyone liked it at the weekend - a complete success.

Lovely, tasty recipe, I omitted the olives and substituted the feta with goats cheese - lovely alternative, popular with everyone, will definitly make again!

Great for lunch with a side salad!

Made this as a starter for friends coming round last weekend and it was delicious. I cooked the onions for slightly longer than the recipe said as I didn't think they looked soft enough after the initial 10 minutes. Next time I think I would make them as individual tarts and serve with a little bit of fresh rocket on the side. Also did not add the olives - don't think the recipe needs it.

I really liked this, the onions were delicious, I love olives but the reviewer who said that they didn't add much was right. I will definitely make this again but will try it with some stronger tasting olives than I used this time.

simply lovely! i added some red wine vinegar too for some extra zing! also, no olives, but i don't like them anyway. served with rocket and spinach salad and some sweet potato wedges - DELIGHTFUL!

I have to make double quantities every time as everyone loves this so much!

The olives don't add a huge amount to it so don't worry if you haven't got any. It's still worth doing!

always a winning combination - delicious and very easy to make. Left overs are perfect for lunch the next day - but prepare to take extra so that everyone else at work can have a taste!

This is a tasty recipe but be patient with the onions. Also I found if you're not careful the base could be a little soggy, I bake the pastry blind for a couple of minutes before adding the topping and serve with a salad to stop it being too greasy. Its worth making extra for the pickle.

Just making this for the second time - perfect for nibbles / aperitif.

I make a version of this from Good Food about 7 years ago. Its basically the same but you sprinkle some grated cheese over the base before putting the onions on and you don't bother with the olives. It is a HUGE sucess and I have made it time and time again for all my veggie friends.
