It’s simply Yummilicious …
Caramelized Onion Tart!
I love this Caramelized Onion Tart! The flavors have that buttery and nutty gorgeous taste from caramelizing the onions first and then topping it off with olives – OH need I say more?!? Yum.
You can also pimp it up by adding some roasted garlic cloves scattered generously for an added burst of nutty flavor and if you like, top it off with some Feta or Goat’s cheese to make it irresistible.
This is one of those recipes that include simple on hand ingredients. I try to keep the puff pastry sheets in freezer at all times. Puff Pastry is so versatile for both sweet and savory foods that makes it a must have. Also the oil cured black olives are some of my favorite olives … which come to think of it, actually makes it a bit harder to keep them in the pantry, but I do try. Onions … I go through so many onions weekly – a lot of onions – but they are always available to grab and use.
The Caramelized Onion Tart is tasty, easy to prepare even at the last minute and is a perfect match with a bottomless bowl of salad!
Absolutely nosh worthy food!
