green tomato and feta tarte tatin


1 or 2 green tomatoes (beefeater kind is best)

1 onion, sliced

olive oil

balsamic vinegar

1 packet feta, cubed

puff pastry

You will need a shallow pan that can go on the hob and in the oven.

Cut the tomato into quarters then slice into apple shaped slices. Cook the onion in a slug of olive oil, until just softened, then add the tomatoes. Meanwhile, roll out the pastry and cut a circle about 1 cm larger than the pan (I press the lid into the pastry and cut around that) .Fry for about 5 minutes, then add a splash of balsamic vinegar, and heat until it is bubbling. Remove from the heat and sprinkle over the feta. Place the pastry over the top and tuck down the sides.

Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes at a medium heat - there are guidelines to cooking the pastry on the packet. Once the pastry looks brown and is cooked, remove from the oven and turn out upside down onto a plate.
