10 Servings

  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup (125ml) milk
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • Dill sprigs to serve
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ⅓ cup (80 ml) olive oil
  • ¼ cup (35g) plain flour
  • 50g soft goat’s cheese
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 onions, peeled, halved
  • ½ cup (60g) buckwheat flour
  • 2 pickling onions, thinly sliced
  • 100g soft goat’s cheese, crumbled
  • 20g unsalted butter, melted, cooled
  • 100g dried chorizo, casing removed, finely chopped



For the Onion Dip

  • Preheat oven grill to high.
  • To make burnt onion dip, place onions on a baking tray and brush with two tbs oil. Grill onions, turning every 4-5 minutes, for 15 minutes or until blackened.
  • Sprinkle with sugar and drizzle with vinegar, then cover tray tightly with foil and set aside to cool.
  • When cool, transfer the onion to a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add the goat’s cheese and whiz to combine. Season then set aside.


For the Blinis

  • Combine flour, baking powder, and sugar in a bowl. Make a well in the center, then add the milk, goat’s cheese, egg, and butter. Season, and whisk until smooth.
  • Heat a large non-stick frypan over medium heat. In batches, place teaspoonfuls of batter into the pan, spreading out into small circles.
  • Turn over halfway through cooking, for 1-2 minutes or until golden.
  • Remove and cool on a wire rack. Repeat to make 30 blinis.
  • Add remaining two tbs oil to frypan and increase heat to medium-high.
  • Add the chorizo and occasionally stir for four to five minutes or until crisp and golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside, reserving oil in the pan.
  • Add pickling onion to the frypan and occasionally stir for two to three minutes or until crisp.
  • Spread blinis with onion dip, then top with crisp chorizo, onion, and dill to serve.
