SAVORY TARTE TATIN – Plant-based beautiful dish to impress your guests. Made with spelt crust.




  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 cups heirloom cherry tomatoes, washed
  • 20 pearl onions, peeled and whole or 2 red onions, thinly sliced
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • fresh thyme leaves for serving
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  • 3 cups spelt flour + more for dusting
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1⁄2 cup non dairy milk
  • 1⁄2 cup avocado or olive oil
  • Salt and pepper or everything bagel spice


  1. *Dough
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, dissolve yeast and water.
  3. After 5 minutes add all other ingredients and mix until having a smooth dough. If too sticky, add 1tsp of flour, if too crumbly add 1 tsp of water at the time. The consistency should be firm enough and easy to roll with a rolling pin.
  4. Set aside in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  5. *Stuffing
  6. In an ovenproof skillet (can be a cast iron skillet or an oven proof pan), heat the avocado oil on medium-high heat.
  7. Add the tomatoes and onions with the balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Cook for 4-6 minutes until softened.
  8. Spread evenly at the bottom of the pan to make one layer.
  9. Optional: spread with cheese (vegan or goat cheese for example)
  10. If making this in advance, you can let the dish cool down and reserve in the fridge until ready to bake with the crust.
  11. *Assemble
  12. Preheat oven at 375F.
  13. Using parchment paper and flour to avoid the dough to stick, roll the dough using a rolling pin.
  14. Using the skillet lid or anything the same size than the skillet, make a circle in the dough the shape of the skillet.
  15. Press the dough on top of the layer to secure the tomatoes and onions, tucking the side gently.
  16. Make small cuts in the dough to let it breathe during baking time. Sprinkle with seasoning of your choice.
  17. Bake for 35-40min. Check after 30 minutes to make sure it’s not overcooked.
  18. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
  19. Using basking gloves and a flat plate, reverse the tarte tatin.
  20. Serves best warm or at room temperature.
