Directions
For this recipe, I used a loose-bottomed Victoria sandwich tin to make a deep tart, about 20cm in diameter and 5cm deep; if you want to make a thinner tart, use a tin that’s about 24cm diameter. Prepare and blind bake the case as for the lettuce tart recipe. Increase the oven temperature to 200C/400F/Gas mark 6. Warm the butter in a pan and gently fry the onions until soft. Add the red wine, vinegar, honey, thyme, salt and a few grinds of pepper. Stir and increase the heat. Cook until almost all the liquid is absorbed and the mixture is glossy; stir in the cooked beetroot and dill and season well. Cut the goat’s cheese into 1cm thick slices and arrange a few on the bottom of the tart. Tip over the beetroot mixture and place the rest of the goat’s cheese rounds on the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and golden. Scatter the dill fronds over the top and serve warm.
