Instructions

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F/Gas 6). Roll out the pastry on a floured work suface, and use to line the tart tin. Trim away the excess, line the pastry shell with greaseproof paper, and fill with ceramic baking beans. Bake in the oven for 15–20 minutes until the edges are golden. Remove the beans and paper, brush the bottom of the shell with a little of the egg wash, and return to the oven for 2–3 minutes to crisp. Remove from the oven, and set aside. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4).


  2. 2

    Heat the oil in a pan over a low heat. Add the onion, and sweat gently for about 5 minutes until soft and translucent. Add the garlic, and cook for a few seconds more. Spoon the onion mixture evenly over the bottom of the tart shell. Arrange the artichokes and olives over the top, and sprinkle with the feta and thyme leaves.


  3. 3

    Mix together the cream and the 2 eggs, and season well with salt and black pepper. Carefully pour over the tart filling. Bake in the oven for 25–35 minutes until set, puffed, and golden. Leave to cool for about 10 minutes before releasing from the tin. Serve warm, or at room temperature, with a rocket and tomato salad.
