For the Filling


  • 300g cherry tomatoes, sliced in half 

  • 2 Tbsp Greek extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 medium red onions, finely diced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • a few sprigs fresh thyme

  • 200g feta cheese, crumbled

METHOD.

  1. Make the tart dough. Shape into a disk, wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes or can be made ahead of time up to 2 days.

  2. In a medium frying pan, add the olive oil and sauté the onions, garlic and the leaves of a few sprigs of thyme on low heat until caramelised and fragrant. Transfer to a bowl.

  3. In the same pan, place the tomatoes in an even layer, add sea salt and pepper to taste and fry on medium for a few minutes until they begin to blister. Remove from heat.

  4. Grease a tart tin or skillet pan with olive oil and place the tomatoes sliced side up/ visible (so when it's flipped over the rounded skin side is visible).

  5. Layer the onion mixture over the tomatoes.

  6. Crumble the feta evenly over the onions.

  7. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  8. Lightly flour the dough and roll out between baking paper (it makes it easer to transfer later) to approx 4mm thickness and a bit wider than your tart case/ skillet pan. Remove the top layer of the baking paper (if using).

  9. Place the pastry over the tart case/ skillet pan, peel the back layer of the baking paper (if using) then tuck the edges into the pan to fully cover the tomatoes.

  10. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

  11. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then flip upside down onto a large plate. 

  12. Top with remaining fresh thyme and a drizzle of Greek evtra virgin olive oil before serving.
