shallot canopesYou’ll need:

12 shallots, peeled and quartered
2 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
5 or 6 sprigs lemon thyme, leaves picked
2 flat breads
30g goats’ cheese
handful of rocket

What to do:

1. Heat the oven to 220C/Gas 7. In a bowl combine the shallots, oil, vinegar and thyme and season well. Swirl everything together so the shallots are well coated then tip into a roasting tin covered with foil.

2. Cook for 20 mins in the centre of the oven. Then remove the foil and cook for a further 20 mins. Spoon the caramelised onions out onto a plate and set aside to cool.

3. Using a circular pastry cutter, cut 15 disks out of the flat breads then mound some of the shallots on top. Crumble some goats’ cheese on each one and grill for a minute or two until the cheese melts slightly.

4. Top each canapé with a sprig or two of rocket and serve.

NB. If you can’t find flat breads in your supermarket use chapattis instead.
