Onions, pear and gorgonzola dolce in a ‘tarte tatin’

Puff pastry is not on the list of ‘healthy food’ but it’s so delicious. I always loved quiches, but if you prepare a quiche for 2p you don’t want to know how many kcal you’ve eaten, unless you can stop after 1/4 😉. A tarte tatin can contain the same ingredients but without cream or eggs.

Slice 1 red onion, 1 pink, 1 white and 2 shallots. Spread on baking paper which on itself is spread in a large quiche form. Spread 20 grams of butter. Bake in the oven at 200° for 30 mins. Stir halfway. Cut 2 peeled pears in wedges. Mix the with 1 table spoon of dried thyme and 2 table spoons of white balsamic vinegar. Stir the onions. Season with 4 chopped garlic cloves, pepper and salt. Spread the pears and vinegar and thyme. Bake for another 20 minutes. Stir gently and try to keep the equal spreading.

Cover with a ready made pastry. Make a small hole in the middle. Bake in the oven at 180° for 20 mins. Turn the tarte tatin gently. Spread 200 grams of gorgonzola dolce. Put back in the oven for another 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted.

Inspired by Yvette van Boven but in a ‘lighter’ version. 😋
