One of the most frequently asked questions when people learn that we have a food blog is: how do you manage to to it together? Where do you find inspiration? For the first question: Each of us finds their role within this project and brings in its creative ideas. It works really well for us, because we are are both receptive to the suggestions of the other.
As for inspiration, it works differently. As far as I’m concerned, it’s often the products that give me ideas. I like going to the farmers market as much as possible, and it is there that I often fall for a vegetable that I find beautiful or that I do not usually cook.
This was the case with this onion pie. I saw the multitude of small onions of all colors on a stall, and I thought there was a good subject for a tasty and visually irresistible recipe.
I wanted to preserve the shape of this vegetable, unlike the traditional onion tart of my little Alsatian region which is made of finely chopped onions. So I had the idea to comfit the onions and the bake them in the oven to get them as soft as possible. I then added a few slices of goat cheese on the outside of the dough to add some salty /sweet flavours.
Colorful onion pie with goat cheese
- 50g Onion bells of different colors
- 1 Goat cheese log
- Olive oil
- 1 Tbsp Honey
For the dough:
- 250g Flour
- 100g Butter
- 5cl Water
Remove the onion skin and cut in half crosswise.
Arrange the onions on parchment paper and season with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.
Bake for 30 minutes at 160 ° C.
When partially cooked, spread honey over the onions.
While the onions are cooking, prepare your pastry crust by mixing the flour with the butter.
Then add water and knead well to get a ball of dough.
Spread out the dough on a baking mold and mke tiny holes in the bottom with a fork.
Prebake the dough for 15 minutes.
Arrange slices of goat cheese along the edges of your crust. Then place your onions until you fill the mold.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes on 160°c.
Gros coup de coeur pour cette tarte à l’oignon revisitée, je pense qu’elle va faire partie
de mes grands classiques. Du genre de ceux qu’on fait le dimanche soir à la maison pour un repas comfort food.
Et vous quel est votre classique en cuisine ?
