    Onion, caper and olive pissaladière

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 1 hour
    • Total time: 1 hour 15 minutes

    Serves: 6


    3 large onions, very thinly sliced
    4 sprigs thyme, leaves picked
    1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    10g unsalted butter
    4 garlic cloves, crushed
    320g sheet ready rolled all butter puff pastry
    25 black olives, pitted
    1½ tbsp capers, drained
    ¼ x 25g pack flat leaf parsley, leaves roughly chopped 


    1. Put the onions, thyme, oil and butter in a large heavy-based pan and set over a very low heat. Cook gently for 20 minutes, then add the garlic and cook for 15-20 minutes more, stirring now and then, until the onions are very soft and sweet. Take care not to let them burn.

    2. Preheat the oven to 220˚C, gas mark 7. Lay the sheet of pastry out on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Score a border 2cm in from the edge, taking care not to cut the whole way through. Spread the onions inside the border and scatter over the olives and capers. Bake for 20 minutes, until the edges of the puff pastry have risen and are deep golden and crispy. Scatter over the parsley; serve at once.
