Total Time: 40 mins
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 red onions (peeled & sliced)
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme (leaves picked)
  • 1 garlic clove (peeled & finely chopped)
  • sea salt & pepper (freshly ground)

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C Fan/Gas mark 7.

  5. Spread the onion over the base, then pour over the tomato mixture evenly, keeping within the scored lines.
  6. Sprinkle the goat’s cheese pearls over the top amongst the tomato, season with pepper. Then brush the border with beaten egg.
