Tomato and Onion Tart

Egg, gluten, lactose, milk, nut, peanut, sesame & wheat free

I was excited to spot some Jus-Rol gluten free (and dairy free) puff pastry in Sainsbury's this week. The pastry comes as a ready rolled circle and so I was able to simply top it and bake. It didn't puff up hugely but it was lovely and crispy and held together well. All in all an excellent and useful product. The pastry ingredients are: water, corn starch, vegetable oils and fats (palm, rapeseed), rice flour, pea flour, vegetable fibres (pea, plantain, rice, psyllium, potatoes), thickeners: xanthan gum, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose; alcohol, salt, buckwheat flour, natural flavouring, flour treatment agent: transglutaminase; acidity regulator: citric acid.
