Spring Thyme Onion Tart Recipe

Spring Thyme Onion Tart Recipe

By the Care2 Staff.

This fragrant, appetizing quiche is a lower-fat version than many but its flavor is outstanding. The lively seasonal tastes of green spring onions, mild cheese, and fresh thyme make it a great choice for a light spring supper.

Omega-3 oils, calcium, and beneficial anti-oxidants make it not only good but good for you. And using a store-bought crust makes it a cinch to make.


Frozen tart-shell, thawed
1 tablespoon butter
24 green onions, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 cup vegetable stock or water
1/4 pound fresh goat cheese
1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped plus sprigs for garnish
salt and freshly-ground pepper, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 375F. In a large heavy-bottomed skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat and add the onions, garlic, and stock, stirring to combine. Cover the skillet and reduce heat to low. Simmer about 15 minutes, until onions are softened.

2. In a bowl, mash together the goat cheese and sour cream until well-blended. Add eggs and thyme and stir to combine.

3. Take the lid off the skillet, turn heat up to high and cook about 3 minutes until liquid has evaporated. Add onion mixture to cheese mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour into tart shell.

4. Bake on top rack of oven 25-30 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and garnish with thyme sprigs. Allow to cool to warm. May be served warm or room temperature.

Serves 6 to 8.
