onion tarte tatin

Onion Tart Tatin- Vegan
1 batch of vegan pastry- 250g plain flour, 85g oil, pinch of salt, enough water to bring the dough away from the sides of the dish
Don’t chill this, it makes it very hard to handle!

500g onions, sliced
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp sugar

2 teaspoons oregano

Heat the oil and sugar in a pan
Meanwhile, slice the onions and arrange beautiful slices on the base of a flan dish/ 2 9inch cake tins/ovenproof lasagne dish etc
Add the onions and cook for around 10 minutes then add the balsamic and give a good stir
Put the oven on at GM 4 or 180C
Keep an eye on the pan and cook for another 10 mins, they should go a lovely brown colour but burn easily.
When they are reduced down, layer in the bottom of the tin/baking dish and gently press down to form an even layer
Place your pastry crust on top (doesn’t matter if it doesn’t cover the whole thing or has holes in as the upside-down nature of it means it will still cook!)
Bake for 35-40 mins, until golden brown
Turn out onto a plate.

This will be a generous portion (half a 9inch cake tin sized pie!) which would be luuurrrrvely with some bread on the side and a bit of veg

The balsamic adds a little extra tartness that is very tasty!
