Directions

GETTING READY
1. Grease 4 small ramekins (oven-safe dishes). Set aside.

MAKING
2. In a dry pan, cook cabbage and apple with honey, salt and pepper over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally (if using red onion, add it now).
3. Add garlic and chives. Cook 2 - 3 minutes.
4. Add wine, turn heat to high and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 4 minutes.
5. Remove from heat. Add olive oil, stir.
6. Divide cabbage mixture and put into the greased dishes.
7. Divide pie crust into 4 discs. Roll out. Top ramekins with crust, crimp around edges, as shown in the video. Cut four vent holes in top of each tart with the point of a knife.
8. Whisk egg with water. Brush just a little over pie crust.
9. Bake (in an oven toaster) at 350 F for about 30 minutes, or until crust is flaky and baked.
10. Meanwhile, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook until the liquid is reduced, thickened and syrupy. (Be careful not to burn it)

FINALIZING
11. Top each tart with some gorgonzola cheese and a drizzle of reduced balsamic vinegar.

SERVING
12. Serve the tarts with a steak salad (spinach, arugula and lettuce topped with a sliced steak and some homemade gorgonzola dressing) or a regular green salad, roasted chicken, bacon or beef (or chicken) crostini as per your choice.
