Ingredients

8 spring onions, trimmed

2tsp rapeseed oil

175g Asda Light 50% Less Fat Soft Cheese

1 large egg

1tbsp fresh thyme leaves, plus extra for garnish

1tsp English mustard

65g Asda 30% Less Fat Mature British Cheese, grated

4 sheets ready-rolled filo pastry

Method

1
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.
2
Heat a griddle pan on a high setting. Toss the spring onions in 1tsp of the oil and cook for 4 mins, turning from time to time until golden and charred. Set aside on a plate to cool.
3
Beat together the soft cheese, egg, thyme leaves, mustard and 25g of the grated cheese. Set aside.
4
Cover the filo pastry with damp kitchen roll to stop it drying out. Arrange 4 individual flan cases (about 11cm) on a baking tray. Brush the remaining oil over one sheet of filo at a time and cut into 4 equal-sized squares. Arrange the squares in the tart tins, placing each piece at a slightly different angle for a ‘starburst’ effect. Repeat until you have lined all 4 tins.
5
Put the tins on a baking tray. Divide the soft cheese mixture between them, spreading out with the back of a spoon. Arrange 2 spring onions on top of each and sprinkle over 25g of the grated cheese.
6
Bake for 15-18 mins until golden and the filling is just set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before carefully taking out of the tins.
7
Sprinkle with thyme leaves, black pepper and the remaining 15g grated cheese.
8
Serve immediately, or enjoy cold at your picnic.
