• 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 red onions, finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, leaves picked, plus 1 tsp chopped stems to garnish
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 200 g raw beetroot, trimmed, peeled and grated
  • 3 sheets filo pastry, halved
  • 30 g unsalted butter, melted
  • 100 g goats' cheese log, torn in pieces
  • 120 g bag mixed salad


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a low heat and gently cook the onions, thyme, vinegar and beetroot for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. 2

    Meanwhile, lay a sheet of filo across a 20cm round loose-based tart tin and brush with some of the butter. Continue layering with filo, brushing with butter as you go. Trim the edges so they hang 1cm over the side. Prick the base with a fork and cook (on a baking sheet) in the oven for 10 minutes.

  3. 3

    Spoon half of the onion and beetroot mixture into the pastry case and scatter over half of the goats’ cheese. Top with the remaining onion mixture and goats’ cheese. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

  4. 4

    Garnish with the extra thyme leaves; cut the tart into wedges and serve with the salad.
