Goat’s cheese, red onion marmalade & walnut sandwiches

Put aside: five minutes for prep and ten minutes to cook the marmalade 

Makes enough for: four 

What you’ll need

For the marmalade

2 red onions finely sliced
50g light brown sugar
10ml soy sauce
5ml olive oil
1 heaped tbsp apricot jam
A pinch of sea salt flakes

For the sandwiches 

200g goat’s cheese crumbled
80g walnuts chopped
20g fresh rocket
1 fresh spelt loaf

What to do

1 Put a thick-based saucepan on a medium heat with the olive oil, red onion and a pinch of sea salt.

2 Let the onions gently cook until they’re soft and tender.

3 Add the sugar, apricot jam and soy sauce. Turn up the heat a notch so the mixture bubbles and reduces down (so all the liquid disappears and you have a jammy consistency).

4 Let the mixture cool as you slice the loaf into 1cm thick wedges.

5 Spread the onion marmalade onto one half of each sandwich with the crumbled cheese, walnut and fresh rocket on top.

6 Now all each sandwich needs is the top slice of bread and they’re ready to be wrapped up and packed up.

You could always...

Go the extra mile and individually wrap the sandwiches in parchment paper tied with string. Such a novelty, but a lovely picnic touch.
