Beetroot and Feta Tart

These are a delicious option for lunch or morning or afternoon tea. The sweetness of the beetroot is enhanced with roasting with a bit of honey in addition to the sticky onion jam and is balanced by the salty feta and the savoury walnuts . This recipe makes 8 tarts which are fairly large , each being a quarter of a sheet of puff pastry.

The addition of steam to the roasting and the pastry cooking avoids the beetroot drying out and also creates a puffier pastry, but if you dont have a steam or steam assist oven you will still get a delicious result with a regular dry oven .

 

If you are short on time you can use a pre purchased onion jam.


For 8 tarts:

 

3-4 beetroot, peeled and diced to 1-2cm size

2 T olive oil

1 t fennel seeds

salt and pepper

1 T honey

200gm feta cheese

1/2 cup walnut pieces.

2 sheets puff pastry.

For Onion Jam:

3-4 red onions sliced

2 T olive oil

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

2t mustard seeds

1t fennel seeds

2-3 star anise.
