EASY RED ONION TART

I love onions, as long as they are cooked in some fashion or other.  Raw onions just do not agree with me, never have.  Here is a recipe I found in a British cooking magazine so the ingredients are metric.  However, since my cooking scale does both, I never have to try to figure out the equivalents.  You can cut calories on this by keeping the puff pastry thin and using low fat cream cheese.

EASY RED ONION TART

250 g puff pastry

500 g halved and sliced red onions

olive oil

3 cloves garlic, brushed

3 sprigs thyme, leaves picked

100 g light cream cheese

Heat oven to 190 C.  Roll out the pastry to a thin circle of approx. 25 cm and put on a baking tray.  Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes until golden and crisp.  Cook the onions slowly in 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large wide pan for about 20 minutes until very tender.  Add the garlic and most of the thyme leaves and cook a further 5 to 10 minutes until the onions just start to caramelize.  Season and cool to room temperature.  Spread the cream cheese over the pastry, leaving a 1 cm border; then spread the onions on top in an even layer.  Scatter over the rest of the thyme leaves to finish.

ENJOY!
