Sweet Potato, Caramelised Onion and Feta Tart

Sweet Potato, Caramelised Onion and Feta Tart

As much as I love cooking, I’m a busy lady and I just don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen each day. So I’m always trying to create cooking shortcuts, either by making more than I need (so I get more than one meal from the effort) or by cooking extra of one part of the meal and then reworking it into another meal.

This Sweet Potato, Caramelised Onion and Feta Tart is an example of the latter. When my kids were babies I would bake a heap of spiced sweet potato – so I wasn’t just cooking for them, I’d mash some of it for them and the rest was made into this tart or tossed into a salad or curry for dinner.

1 large or two medium sized sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into approx. 1.5cm cubes
2 tablespoons of butter, ghee or coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon of cinnamon, ground
375g pack of Carême All Butter Puff Pastry (contains no vegetable oil or nasty additives)
1 large red onion, peeled and sliced
1 teaspoon of coconut sugar or rice malt syrup
1 tablespoon of aged balsamic vinegar
100g of feta or goat feta, crumbled
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
Rocket leaves (optional), to serve

2 tablespoons of olive oil mixed with
1 tablespoon of aged balsamic vinegar


  1. Preheat your oven to 200℃.
  2. Toss your diced sweet potato in 1 tablespoon of the fat or your choice and cinnamon.
  3. Arrange in a single layer on a baking dish and bake for approx. 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
  4. Whilst the sweet potato is baking, cook your onion slices in the remaining tablespoon of fat over a low heat for 10 minutes (or until they become opaque). Add the sugar and 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and cook for another 10 minutes or until the onion starts to caramelise.
  5. Once the sweet potato is cooked through, remove from the oven, set aside enough sweet potato for baby and season the rest.
  6. Babies meal – you can mash or puree the sweet potato with a little bone broth mixed though or serve as is if you are baby-led-weaning.
  7. Family meal – assemble your tart by spreading the middle of the puffed pastry (leave a 2cm border) with the onion, then top with the sweet potato and feta. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until your puff pastry is golden brown.
  8. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a small jar or bowl.
  9.  Remove the tart from the oven, top with the rocket and drizzle with the dressing.
  10. Serve immediately.

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose
