25 October 2015

Serves 6


3 red onions, roughly sliced

1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced

2 tbsp. balsamic glaze

2 tbsp. olive oil

75g walnuts, roughly chopped

200g Bleu d’Auvergne, stilton or other crumbly blue cheese

150ml chicken stock

150g flour

75g butter, softened

2 tsp. thyme

Sea salt and black pepper



1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.


2. In a medium-sized oven roasting tray, mix together the sliced red onions and diced sweet potatoes with the balsamic glaze, olive oil and chopped walnuts.


3. Crumble over the blue cheese, and gently pour in the chicken stock. Season to taste.


4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, butter and thyme and season generously.


5. Work the butter into the flour and thyme with the tips of your fingers for the crumble topping.


6. Scatter the crumble topping over the onion and sweet potato mixture then bake in the oven for 1.5 hours. If the topping starts to burn, turn down the temperature of the oven slightly and cover with aluminium foil.
