Red Onion Tart with Blue Cheese Recipe
- 1/2 cup / 125 Gr whole wheat flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup/ 65 Gr Steel-Cut Irish Oatmeal (I use McCannâs from Ireland)
- 1/2 cup/ 65 Gr plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 5 tablespoons Butter
- 3 oz/ 85 Gr Guyere, shredded
- 3 tablespoons cold water
- 2 lbs/ 900 Gr red onions, peeled and sliced
- 1 cup/ 250 Ml Balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 tablespoon honey
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Sprigs of fresh chervil, for garnish
- 4 oz/ 113 Gr blue cheese (I prefer Cashel Blue Cheese)
- 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
- Combine the flour, salt, oatmeal, flour, butter, and cheese in the bowl of a food processor and process until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs.
- Transfer to a bowl, add the water, and mix until a soft dough forms. Form the dough into a ball and let it rest for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface.
- Cut pastry into six 4-inch rounds, line six individual tarts pans with the pastry, prick the bottoms, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine onions and vinegar. Cover with wax paper and lid. Cook gently for 30 minutes.
- Remove paper and lid, add the honey, and cook until the liquid has nearly evaporated and the onions are caramelized. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- In a small bowl, mash the blue cheese with a fork and blend with the yogurt.
- To serve, remove pastry from tart pans and place in the center of a warmed serving plate.
- With a slotted spoon, fill each with enough red onion mixture to cover base.
- Place a spoonful of blue cheese mixture on top. Drizzle with reduced balsamic vinegar and garnish with a sprig of fresh chervil.
