- Cook Time: 45 min(s)
- Serves 12
You will need an oven tray (approximately 32cm x 44cm) with shallow sides.
Ingredients2 x 375 g blocks puff pastry, at room temperature
1 egg, beaten with 2 tsp water
200 g store-bought caramelised onion
80 ml (⅓ cup) olive oil
7 x 250 g punnets red grape tomatoes
250 g punnet yellow grape tomatoes
⅓ cup sage leaves
PreparationPreheat oven to 210˚C. Roll each pastry block out on a lightly floured work surface to 50cm x 20cm rectangles. Place side by side on a greased 32cm x 44cm oven tray, slightly overlapping in the centre, and ensuring pastry extends 2cm up the edge of the tray on all sides. Press overlapped section lightly to seal.
Brush pastry with egg wash, then bake for 20 minutes or until golden and puffed. Using a clean tea towel, lightly press down on centre of tart to form an indentation in the middle. Spread over caramelised onion. Cool.
Meanwhile, working in 3 batches, heat 1 tbs oil in a large frying pan over medium heat, add one-third of the tomatoes and cook, tossing occasionally, for 3 minutes or until the skins blister. Tightly pack tomatoes on tart and cool.
Heat remaining 1 tbsp oil in the same pan. Add sage and cook for 1 minute or until lightly crisp. Drain on paper towel, then scatter over tomatoes. Return tart to oven and bake for 10 minutes or until heated through and tomatoes are softened. Serve.
