Feta, Tomato & Onion Tarts

This blog has moved! See this post on the relocated blog here: http://spiceboxofearth.co.uk/2012/12/18/feta-tomato-onion-tarts/

We enjoyed the Manchester Vegan Potluck Festive Edition this past weekend. One of our attendees made an absolutely delicious almond feta, which inspired me to make my own ASAP! The recipe is from one of my very favourite food blogs, Maple Spice. Check it out here!. I made own rather more herby and garlicy, and after leaving it in the fridge overnight, was ready to have a go at it today....

I had some homemade shortcrust pastry left over from yesterday's pie, and decided to go right ahead and put the cheese into a recipe.....if you can even call it that! This is so simple (once the cheese is made!) - it's perfect Christmas party food.

Roll out your pastry (or use ready rolled) and cut out large circles. Press the circles gently into a shallow bun tray, oiled with a little olive oil, and add the cheese, chopped onion and chopped tomato.

Bake for around 10 minutes at 200C or until the pastry is thoroughly cooked.

This cheese is so easy to make, and requires no fancy ingredients - simply blitz everything in the blender, leave overnight, and bake. I highly recommend you give this a go - add it to your cheeseboard at Christmas and see if anyone notices! :)
