  • 6 onions, halved (keep root intact)

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomato
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 85g white breadcrumbs
  • 125g log goat's cheese, crumbled


  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Place onions in a steamer and cook for 20 mins, or until tender.

  2. Meanwhile, put the garlic and olive oil in a shallow flameproof casserole dish or large frying pan. Gently cook over a medium heat for 1 min, taking care not to let it colour. Tip in the chopped tomatoes, sugar and half a can of water. Simmer for about 10 mins until thickened, then season. Nestle the onion halves, cut-side down, in the sauce and simmer for 5 mins more.

  3. Transfer to a baking dish if you need, sprinkle over the breadcrumbs and goat’s cheese, then bake for 20 mins, until bubbling and golden.
