Posted by 2142 2142 on Monday, March 09, 2015

Caramelised Onion and kale tart


Olive oil

3 onions, sliced into thin rings

2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

3 stalks kale leaves, chopped

4 eggs

½ cup low fat milk

½ cup ricotta

2 tablespoons parmesan

6 sheets filo pastry


Preheat oven to 180 C. Spray a pie dish with oil.

In a heatproof bowl, pour boiling water over kale to cover and leave to stand.

Heat the olive oil in a non-stick frypan. Add onion and cook over a medium heat until caramelised. Add a little water to prevent sticking if necessary.

Remove from heat and add sugar and balsamic vinegar. Set aside.

Drain water from kale and squeeze out excess moisture with a towel.

In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, ricotta and parmesan.

Lay each filo sheet over the dish one by one in a fan pattern, spraying each with oil. Neaten the edges by folding into the dish.

Place the onions over the filo base, then the kale. Pour over the egg mixture.

Bake for 40 minutes or until golden.

Tip: keep the stalks for your next stir fry or soup
