I love working with Honey for Life. Not only are their products delicious and good for me, I am learning to examine the ways in which I use a highly rated TA honey, I am making a lot more recipes starring honey.
If you have a great honey, it is better not to heat it, to retain the health benefits. This recipe barely has honey in it if we're honest. BUT, the small amount it does have is essential to the finished flavour of the recipe and yes, it remains unheated thus retaining all it's health benefits. (So don't forget it!) You can use the Fermented Chilli Honey if you happen to have some ready, but it is equally delicious with just a drizzle of any honey. In fact, my (grown up) kids were skeptical about the drizzle, they were eating the last couple of pastres and couldn't be bothered adding it...I insisted. They were amazed and agreed that it did make the dish!
SO...These are super easy, very impressive, you do need to make the Caramelised Onion Relish recipe, but the rest is non Thermomixy. Have fun and serve with a big leafy green salad.
Your tastebuds will thank you (and me)!
A TA rated honey offers a range of therapeutic advantages, such as its natural antibacterial properties, soothing effect on sore throats, potential for wound healing, and its rich antioxidant content that supports overall health and well-being.

- 1 Batch Puff Pastry ready to roll Recipe
- 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) BUY
- 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- fresh thyme leaves BUY
- pink salt flakes BUY
- black pepper
- 4 pears, sliced thinly, skin on
- 50 Grams parmesan cheese grated

- 100 Grams marinated goats cheese, crumbled
- 2 Tablespoons Caramelised Onion Relish Recipe
- 1 Tablespoon Fermented Chilli Honey or regular runny honey Recipe
Preheat oven to 200°C. Line 2 large trays with baking paper.
Roll out puff pastry to a large rectangle. Cut into 8 rectangles. Set aside. Sizing doesn't really impact cooking time, but try and make them even if you can.
On each tray, drizzle EVOO in the 4 places where your puffs will be. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar, add salt, pepper and thyme leaves.
Arrange pear slices on top, then sprinkle with grated parmesan.
Lay puff pastry on top of these ingredients and push down onto the paper, then seal edges with a fork. Brush with egg wash. Sprinkle with more parmesan.
Bake for 15-18 minutes.
Carefully flip upside down and serve with crumbled goats cheese, a good dollop of caramelised onion, a drizzle of the honey and fresh thyme sprigs. (Time for an Instagram pic we think!)
