Tarte flambée and green juice

2013-04-05

Ying and yang. The 2 extremes together : a tarte flambée and a veggie juice. Both are made quickly for a weekday lunch.

The new onions were screaming : “Une flammekueche ! Une flamm’ !An onion tart !”.
The traditional recipe of this Lorraine-Alsace delight requires bread dough :

la flamme tutorial (click here)

DSC09269-001

It’s a very quickified version : baking powder dough, onions, a little ham and some home-made coconut yogurt. Lots of black pepper. Baked in the oven-toaster.

DSC09250-002

The juice : lots of fresh komatsuna leaves and a little yuzu juice.
小松菜 komatsuna, litterally means “little pine tree greens”, but they are sorts of turnip leaves. The juice is slightly bitter but not too much to drink it.

Serve the 2 together and enjoy sin with health.

Tarte flambée à l’oignon blanc et aux 3 poivres

The “tarte flambée” is made with creme fraiche in my place, cottage cheese in other areas. Toppings are onion and bacon bits.
What did I have ?

Onions, white ones. The sauce is yogurt blended with cream cheese that was getting old and dry. I had to finish the cheese. The white mix was very liquid but dried a bit too much. If I had to do it again, I’d add a little butter or oil in it.

No bacon in view…. I flavored it with 3 peppers freshly grounded : pink, green that you see in the mortar and black that has its own mill.


The dough raised a lot, but it was very crispy under. Well, with a little white wine, that’s a good dinner.
