    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 small onions, thinly sliced
    • 1 garlic clove, crushed
    • pinch of sugar
    • 25g butter, melted
    • 8 sheets filo pastry, about 115g in total, halved
    • 1/3 cup walnut pieces, chopped

    1. Heat half the oil in a heavy-based saucepan. Add the onions, garlic and a pinch of sugar. Stir, cover and cook gently over a low heat for 30 minutes. Leave to cool.
    2. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Mix the butter and remaining oil together. Brush half a sheet of filo with a little of the oil mixture, then lay three more pieces on top at angles to each other to form a star shape, oiling each sheet as you go.
    3. Scatter a quarter of the onions in the centre of the pastry and sprinkle with a quarter of the walnuts. Place one round of goat's cheese on top. Scatter over 1/2 teaspoon of the thyme leaves and season with pepper. Gather up the edges of the pastry and pinch together to enclose the filling and make a purse shape. Repeat to make three more purses.
    4. Put the purses on a non-stick baking tray. Brush lightly with the remaining oil mixture. Bake for 10–15 minutes until golden. If you like, tie each purse with a sprig of thyme.
