    Olive oil

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

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

    Balsamic vinegar

    bal-sam-ick vin-ee-gah

    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.

This was really tasty. I have rated 5 stars but really based on my version and tips from other comments, but I do imagine the original recipe would be very tasty. I added a tomato sauce and some grated cheese to the base. I also included some cherry tomatoes, green olives, walnuts and oregano to the mix. I also used the amount of sugar it said for the onions, for myself and my husband found it really nice and not too sweet. Will definitely be making it again.

Worked out really well, great recipe? Good flavours, made one change which was adding mushrooms as not a fan of olives? Fried off the onions for 10 mins as said but threw the mushrooms in for last 4-5 mins of frying, good substitute for anyone who doesn't like olives :)

Went down really well for tonight's tea, I used a teaspoon of sugar for caramelising the onions as I thought a tablespoon was too much. I spread the base of the pastry with tomato purée before putting the onions etc on so the tart wasn't too dry. I also added fresh tomato and spinach to the tart in addition to the onions, feta and olives. Was really easy and would make again.

I also doubled the amount of onions and used goats cheese instead of feta, I think this works better. Very tasty!

I love this recipe, it's so simple and full of the flavours I love best. As everyone knows olives, feta and caramelised onions are a winning combination, and the balsamic adds that extra tang. Try adding some tomatoes and spinach to the mix if you want to change it up a bit, but the recipe really is great as it is. Alongside the salad, try serving with some new potatoes roasted with fresh thyme or rosemary. It's always a winner at home!

plus forgot to add that not enough onions to cover pastry either. so would use three large ones. Also onions didn't stay in wedges like the photo above! Same recipe but a different photo in the magazine.

YUK! too many olives - overpowering, tasted awful. Next time will only sprinkle a few halves.

Bit disapointed in this recipe. Next time will try mozzarella as this will melt unlike the feta. And will use less sugar next. I have a sweet tooth but not that sweet !

Have made this several times & it always get good comments. I left off the olives as we don't like them but don't think it matters there are lots of nice flavours!

Gonna try this with goats cheese for a main meal. Can't help thinking that walnuts would be nice on this? haven't got any so poss. next time :)
