  • 6 Shallots; peeled and left
  • ; whole

  • 1 sm Quantity fresh thyme leaves
  • 3 tb Balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tb Double cream
  • 4 tb Vegetable stock
  • 1 sm Quantity lemon thyme leaves
  • 1 sm Salad leaves to decorate


Gently braise the whole shallots and shredded leeks in the balsamic vinegar
and honey with the thyme leaves for up to one hour or until the shallots
are tender. When the shallots are cooked the liquid should be very syrupy.

Use the shortcrust pastry to line two small tartlet tins (approximately 10
cms across) and blind bake until the pastry is golden and crisp.

Reduce the vegetable stock until you have around three tbsp left and
separately reduce the cream until you have the same quantity. Combine the
two and season to taste.

In the warm tartlet case arrange the shallots and pile over a small
quantity of the salad leaves. Put the lemon thyme into the hot sauce and
pour around.

Serve immediately.
