Red onion and thyme

The earthiness of the red onion and thyme complement the sharpness of the goat feta.

Cooking down the onion

As the red onion becomes translucent by adding the thyme to the fry pan the herb creates a beautifully fragrant filling.

Gluten free tartlet shells

What I love most about these tartlet shells, besides being gluten free, is they can be pre-made then stored in the freezer. All you then have to do is make the filling, bake the tartlets and you have a scrumptious appetiser to serve your guests in little to no time!

Egg filling

By mixing the almond milk with the eggs for the filling it ensures it goes that little bit further and the tartlets don’t taste too heavy.

Ready for the oven

Make sure you fill the tartlets to the top, I did this by spooning the egg filling over the goat cheese.

Perfect to serve when entertaining!

These tartlets will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for two days or in the freezer for up to two weeks! Simply warm in a 180C/350F oven for 10 – 15 minutes then serve!
