Onion Tart - Vegan
|Vegan onion tart|
We have not done much vegan baking at all but Karen wanted to try this dish as a starter at our last dinner party.
The original idea also came from the Leafy Green Cafe recipe book by Antonia De Luca, but we also needed to make this one gluten free.
After much research on the internet, Karen came up with this gluten free version, and it worked pretty well.
1/3 C almond flour
1/3 C soy flour
2/3 C tapioca flour
3/4 t guar gum
1/2 t salt
1/2 cup cold vegan butter
1/1/2 t apple cider vinegar
3 - 5 T cold water
Whisk together all the flours, guar gum and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the apple cider vinegar and water and stir gently till the mixture comes together to form a dough.
Roll out the dough in the usual way and press into a pie dish with removeable base.
Ingredients for filling
10 onions chopped
1 1/4 C water
1 T corn flour
1 T caraway seeds
1/2 t marmite
salt and black pepper to taste
cherry tomatoes for the topping.
Cook the onions in 1 cup of the water till soft.
Stir in the salt, pepper, caraway seeds and marmite and cook a bit more.
Mix the cornflour in the remaining 1/4 water, stir in and let it bind.
Pour the mixture into the pastry crust.
Halve the cherry tomatoes and decorate the top as you like.
Bake in the oven at 220 deg C for about half an hour.
Quite different and delicious.
