Green Onions

Usher in Spring with this easy green onion tart using the first of the delicate onion harvest. Green onions are available throughout most of the year but they are especially delicious at the peak of the season.  Although they can have a spicy bite to them when they are raw, once cooked they become mild, delicate and slightly sweet.

Green onions are also called scallions….then there are the Spring onions which are a little larger and have a small onion bulb at the base.  The Spring onion can easily be interchanged for the green onions in this tart.

Making the Green Onion and Goat Cheese Tart

Frozen puff pastry makes this recipe easy yet delivers a special decadence. Let the pastry thaw just enough so that it is pliable then roll it out slightly. Blend some soft goat cheese with an egg and a dash of salt then spread it on the pastry. Leave a two-inch border all around and fold the border over for an instant “crust”.

Next, you will place the green onions on the filling and dust it lightly with salty parmesan cheese. Pine nuts are sprinkled on top and give the tart a delightful texture. The pine nuts were not part of this recipe the first time I made it but I saw how Jamie Oliver used them in his Spring Onion Tart and love the addition.
