Gluten Free Caramalised Onion and Goats cheese pasty
This recipe is a twist on the humble pasty, this makes 6-8 small sized pasties. We loved these and had these with chips and salad.
Ingredients for pastry:
300g of gluten free plain flour
150g of cold diced butter
1.5tsp of xanthan gum
1tsp of salt
2 table of ice cold water
1.5tsp of dried basil
Ingredients for filling:
2 red onions
2tsbp of soft brown sugar
In a bowl mix the xanthan gum and flour until incorporated and then add the cold butter. Once this is done mix together to make a breadcrumb like mixture. Add the salt, dried basil and mix. Then add the egg, use a knife to mix all ingredients. Then add 2tbsp of cold water, continue to mix with the knife until the mixture becomes a dough, which should be slightly sticky
Transfer from mixing bowl to clingfilm and chill in the fridge for an hour.
Whilst the pastry is chilling finely dice the onions and place in a saucepan with the sugar and drizzle some olive oil in too. You then need to cook the onions for 5-10 minutes or until caramelised
Once the pastry is out of the fridge roll to half a centimeter thick.
Once you have cut your shape, egg wash one side of the pastry and add the filling before folding over and crimping ( Either on top or on the side)
Once this is done place in the fridge for another 20 minutes.
When the Pasties are chilled place an egg wash on top before place in the oven for 25 minutes on 180C.
