A really tasty thing to do with spring onions

I’ve never thought of cooking spring onions before, usually they are chopped up and thrown randomly into a salad. So this River Cottage recipe caught my eye, it’s called ‘Spring Onion Galette’. We call it Spring Onion Tart. It is very quick to make and is best when slightly charred. spring onion - close-up 26-4-14tart - just out of the oven 26-4-14Serves 4
375g packet of all-butter ready-made puff pastry
3 large bunches of spring onions, about 600g spring onions - bunch 26-4-143 tbsp olive oil
100g parmesan cheese, grated [or any other hard cheese]
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6.

Lightly oil a baking sheet.

Roll out the pastry into a rectangle, 4-5mm thick, and lay it on the sheet.

Trim the root ends of the spring onions, and the green ends, leaving 2-3cm of tender green part attached. Strip off the outer layer if it looks tired. Rinse briefly and pat dry. If the onions are slender, use them whole, otherwise cut them in half lengthways.

Put the onions in a bowl with the 3 tbsp olive oil and cheese. Season to taste, toss together thoroughly. spring onions & cheese - in bowl 26-4-14Lay the spring onions on the pastry in a single layer, leaving a 2-3cm clear margin around the edge of the pastry rectangle. Dot any remaining cheese and oil over the onions. tart - ready to go into the oven 26-4-14Bake for 25 minutes.

    Yum 🙂 The G.O. won’t eat leeks but will eat their cousins the [in Australia] shallot and I include them in many cooked dishes. I’ve not tried this but love the cheese combination.
