Preheat the oven to 200C.
In an ovenproof dry medium pan over medium high heat, cook the sugar until melted to a dark amber colour. Add the butter and carefully stir until melted through. Add the apple cider vinegar and the miso paste and whisk to combine.
Bring to a simmer and add the onions cut face down. Reduce the heat to medium and cook the onions for 10 minutes until lightly softened.
Drape the pastry over the pan, tuck the sides in and prick with a fork all over. Place the pan in the oven and bake for approximately 25 to 30mins or until pastry is lightly golden brown.
Allow the tart to settle for 5 minutes before turning out onto the serving platter, drizzle honey all over whilst the tart is still warm.
Allow the tart to cool down before sprinkling with thyme and sea salt and adding pieces of goats cheese on top. Garnish with lavender.
Best served with a fresh side salad. Serves 6.
