OK I didn't get this right. We ate at 10 pm after I tried 3 times to make the caramel glaze thing. i didn't succeed. Here's what we did eat along with baked chicken wings and steamed silverbeet from our garden. The recipe is from Ottolenghi's fantastic "Plenty", which is all vegetarian.
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
500g small potatoes, skins on
1 large onion, sliced thinly
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp butter
3 sprigs of oregano
150g goats cheese
1 sheet puff pastry
Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Bake them on baking paper with salt and pepper and some drizzled olive oil at 140C for 45 mins.
Boil potatoes in salted water for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool, then cut off tops and bottoms so they are 2.5-3 cm long.
Saute onion in olive oil and some salt for about 10 mins until golden.
Brush a 22cm cake tin with oil and line the bottom with baking paper.
Now this next bit didn't work for me, even though I tried to make it three times! In a small pan, cook butter and sugar on high heat, stirring constantly, until it forms a semi-dark caramel. Pour into cake pan and tilt to spread it evenly over the bottom.
Each time the caramel was too thick. I learned to melt the sugar first and then add the butter bit by bit but it still didn't work. Next time I'm inclined to try melting more butter and then add sugar bit by bit.
Since it didn't work, I decided to put the puff pastry on the bottom rather than the top (as is usual with a tarte tartin, which you bake and then flip upside down). Obviously if you make it properly, the butter caramel becomes a glaze on top once its flipped.
Cover the base with shredded oregano leaves. Lay potato pieces close together and push the tomatoes and onion into the gaps between the potato.
Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, then crumble the goats cheese on top. Normally you'd then add the puff pastry and bake on 200C for 25 mins, then 15 mins at 180C. Let cool for 2 minutes, place a plate on top and flip the tart. If you do it properly like this, the cheese will be at the bottom of the pie. Because I put the pastry on the bottom where the caramel was meant to be, the cheese ended up on the top.
Anyway ts tasted great as it was and I'll be trying again to make it properly!
