R92 Vegan tarte flambées 101

What a nonsense to have tarte flambées only in autumn! Spring, summer and winter: it looks like you miss one of the best dishes in the world. A tarte flambée is so changeable, easy to prepare and not that heavy on the stomach – it is, like we said, just perfect. So we really have to bookmark these recipes for the rest of the year, even it’s spring, summer or winter. At the time there are a lot of autumn-vibes around us, cause well, it’s october, so we HAVE to give you our favorite recipes for tarte flambées. But only if you swear to have them not only this time of the year!

The dough

The most important thing: you need to get a thin and crispy dough in the end. And by the way: you can buy ready-to-cook-doughs now in supermarkets. But it’s really easy to do them, so you can have your own dough within minuts. And it’s way cheaper and healthier than the manufactured ones.

The creme

Traditionally you use sour creme for your tarte flambées. You can find vegan sour cremes in a lot oh vegan-friendly shops like Veganz, but they are actually quite expensive. So the easiest way to get a perfect, fresh creme is to do it by your own. We do not suggest to use soy cream, cause your tarte flambée won’t work that well with it.

At this point there are no boundaries anymore. Go crazy and do whatever your hot for! For a classy one, we prepared a tarte with onions and vegan “bacon”. But there are also potatoes, figs, pumpkin, apples or berries and they also want to dance on your little tarte-party. You can find our 4 favorite recipes and toppings here:
