Individual tarts of beetroot, Grace’s Goat’s cheese and hazelnuts – perfect as a dinner party starter.

Makes: 8 Small Tarts

Ingredients & Cooking Instructions

4 tbsp olive oil

3 large red onions, very finely sliced

1 sprig of rosemary, leaves chopped

500g (1lb 2oz) puff pastry

350g (12oz) cooked beetroot

25g (1oz) hazelnuts

250g (9oz) Greenfields Grace’s Goat's cheese, broken into chunks

Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling

Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the onions. Make sure they are coated with the fat, then add 2 tbsp water, season and cover. Turn down the heat very low and let the onions sweat for about 20 minutes. Check every so often to make sure they’re not catching and burning. Add a splash of water if necessary. When they are completely soft stir in the rosemary. If the mixture is wet turn up the heat to drive off the excess.

Roll out the pastry to the thickness of a 10p piece. Using a saucer cut out eight circles about 15cm (6in) in diameter. Place on a floured baking-sheet and prick all over with a fork. Put in an oven preheated to 190°C/375°F/gas mark 5 and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and, if the centres have risen, gently flatten with a wooden spoon. Turn up the heat to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6.

Cut the beetroot into quarters. Chop the nuts very roughly so that some are just halved or quartered and others stay whole.

Top the pastry with the onions, leaving a rim of about 1.5cm (½in), then add the beetroot wedges, then the crumbled cheese. Season and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil. Put the tray back in the oven and cook for 10 minutes, scattering the hazelnuts over the top three minutes before the end. The cheese should be golden in patches and the pastry cooked but not too dark. Serve immediately.
