Delicious served hot or cold


Brie & red onion pie ingredients


50g butter

3 large red onions (or 4 medium size)

200g puff pastry (ready rolled)

120g brie


Cooking onions


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (check pastry packaging for details).
  2. Peel, then thickly slice the onions.
  3. In a pan, cook the onions slowly over a low heat in the butter until soft and lightly browned (roughly 30 minutes – slow cooking gives onions a delicious caramelised flavour).
  4. Add the spinach to the pan and leave until the spinach has wilted.
  5. Unroll the pastry onto some parchment paper on a shallow baking tray. Lightly score the border about 2cm inside the pastry.
  6. Preparing brie & red onion tart

  7. Spread out the onions and spinach up to the border you created. Then tear the brie into small pieces and dot around.
  8. Brush the border of the pastry with the butter from the onions.
  9. Bake for around 20 minutes until the pastry is golden brown.
