Lunchbox: Red Onion and Prosciutto Tart

We love loveeee a tart lunch in our lunchboxes mostly because they are just super easy to make and very filling. A slice goes great with just a simple salad or some roasted veggies and the beauty is that these taste just as great cold as they do hot!


1 x ready made puff pastry

1/4-1/2 can of passata

2 beef tomatoes, thinly sliced

1/2 packet of parma ham/prosciutto

2 red onions, sliced

1/2 tbsp dried mixed herbs

50g goats cheese (not spreadable/soft)

1/2 bag of spinach

1.5 tbsp soft brown sugar

1-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar


In a saucepan pop in the sliced red onions with about 1 tablespoon of olive oil and let this simmer away and cook through for about 15-20 minutes. Stir every now and again so the onions don’t stick to the bottom of the pan. After this time when the onions are really caramelised add the brown sugar and the balsamic vinegar. Keep cooking for about 5 minutes until sticky!

Roll out the pastry and pop it on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.

Pour over the passata and spread out with the back of a spoon, making sure to leave about a 1 inch gap around the edges. Then top with the caremliased onions making sure to cover as much of the passata as possible. Lay over the sliced tomatoes and then top that with the goats cheese broken up into pieces. Break up the prosciutto slices and lay on the top of the pastry. 

Pop this in the oven for 20-30 minutes until the cheese has melted and the pastry is crispy. 

When the tart is out of the oven top it with the spinach! Cut and enjoyyy!!!!


I hope you love this, its regularly requested in my house!

Love A, x.
