Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 and grease 2 x 15cm sandwich tins with solid bases. In a non-stick pan, gently cook the shallots in the oil until golden and softened. If they start to colour before softening, add a dash of water and cover the pan. Tip out the shallots and wipe out the pan.

  2. Put the butter in the pan with the nuts, garlic, rosemary, maple syrup and vinegar. Season and allow to bubble until syrupy. Tip in the shallots and cook briefly, stirring to coat them. Spoon half the shallots and syrup into each tin, then add the beetroots, alternating them with the shallots as you go.

  3. Cut the pastry in half, then roll out each piece on a lightly floured surface until just larger than the tins. Place the pastry over the vegetables and tuck it down the insides of the tin. Trim off any excess with scissors and pierce the middle of the pastry with a knife to make a hole for steam to escape. Bake for 15-20 mins until golden. Cool for a few mins in the tin, then turn out onto plates and top with the rocket.

Just finished eating this a minute ago.

Really, really good, and not at all complicated to make. And filling! I can hardly move. I was slightly doubtful about how this recipe would turn out - I haven't made anything of from the tatin family before - haven't cooked with beetroot before either - I only decided to give this recipe a go because I bought some discounted, and had to use them up somehow; my local shop didn't have shallots so I used eight small onions instead, and substituted vegan marg for butter, and balsamic vinegar for red wine vinegar. And despite all that, it was still great! Definitely will be returning to this recipe.

Lovely recipe. Followed recipe except added some feta once tarte was tuned out. Served with salad dressed in balsamic vinegar which was a nice contract to the sweetness of the tart. Definitely recommend but ensure sandwich tin is non stick!
