  • Flour, for rolling out
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 15g butter
  • 2 tsp chopped thyme leaves, plus a few leaves to garnish

  • 220g Extra Special Tomkin Tomatoes, halved
  • 100g pack Chosen by you Goats Cheese, chopped
  • Pre-heat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7. Roll the pastry out to the thickness of a pound coin then cut out 4 rounds using a saucer as a guide. Put on a baking tray. Using the point of a knife, mark a rim around the edge of each tart (take care not to cut right through). Chill for at least 30 minutes.

  • Divide the onion between the pastry cases, spreading it inside the marked rims. Top with the tomatoes, cut-side up, and cheese pieces.

  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastry is golden and the tomatoes are softened. Garnish with thyme leaves.
