Creator Notes

This scrumptious tart is modeled after a model native to Fantastic in Southern France known as Pissaladiere. That one makes employ of anchovies – I sub’d with unusual, in-season asparagus! I additionally made a total wheat crust and worn vegan butter to boost the fiber and decrease paunchy. That you have to presumably also basically assemble this on practically about any form of flatbread, puff pastry or pizza dough. But I mediate luminous how one can assemble a scrumptious tart dough is a correct trick to have up your sleeve resulting from it be easy, inexpensive and the detect is rather spectacular. By the system, that is what genuinely caramelized onions are – no butter, merely time and warmth. The sugar and sherry promote that horny caramel color and add to the candy-scrumptious flavor (trust me, it be price the time!) One slice of this tart is a “Dazzling Provide” of fiber, vitamin K, thiamin, phosphorus, and magnesium. —


  • 1 1/2 cups

    total wheat flour

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons

    salt, divided

  • 1/2 cup

    unsalted butter (preferably oil-basically based mostly entirely), cool, diced

  • 1/4 cup

    cool water

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons

    olive oil, divided

  • 2 kilos

    candy onions, sliced thin

  • 2 teaspoons

    asparagus spears, trimmed and decrease into 2″ lengths

  • 1/4 cup

    pitted nicoise olives
  1. In the bowl of a meals processor, pulse the flour and 1 tsp salt together. Add diced butter and pulse until you have to perhaps perhaps also have shocking crumbs.
  2. With the motor running, pour the cool water by the spout until the dough merely comes together. Pour out onto the counter and knead until it merely comes into a ball. Flatten into a 1-2″ disc, conceal with plastic and refrigerate no longer decrease than one hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 levels F.
  4. In a broad skillet with fantastic aspects (known as a sautoir), heat 2 Tbsp EVOO over medium heat. Add onions and put together dinner 20 minutes until they’re all translucent and starting effect to brown, stirring infrequently.
  5. Turn the warmth to medium-low and add the sugar. Cook any other 40 minutes until they’re caramel coloured (no longer browned). Add last 1/2 tsp salt and deglaze with the sherry to tug the total neatly-behaved fond from the underside of the pan and to beef up the flavor. Fetch from the skillet.
  6. Fetch the dough from the fridge and roll it out onto a evenly floured surface. You wish to employ as limited flour as that you have to perhaps perhaps mediate of and work it as limited as that you have to perhaps perhaps mediate of. With each and every roll of your rolling pin, turn the dough a quarter turn to promote the formation of a circle.
  7. When the dough is 2-3″ higher than your tart pan, roll it onto the rolling pin after which out into the cooking sprayed-evenly floured pan.
  8. First, lift the excess dough up while you push it down into the perimeters of the pan. then inch support and press in opposition to the partitions of the pan to real it. Natty the excess dough by rolling the pin over the end to decrease it off.
  9. “Dock” the dough by pricking it several times with a fork. Line the pan with parchment paper (or foil) and beget it with beans. This could occasionally retain the tart in region as you pre-bake it (known as blind baking).
  10. Blind bake for Quarter-hour. Fetch from the oven after which exhaust the parchment and beans. That you have to presumably also reuse the beans an infinite series of times to blind bake so effect them!
  11. In the meantime, after the onions are completed add the asparagus to the onion skillet, conceal and put together dinner 3-4 minutes until rather softened. Fetch from heat.
  12. To assemble, brush the last 1/2 Tbsp EVOO over the crust. Then spread the onions evenly over top, and arrange the asparagus spears in a criss-unsuitable line sample. Space an olive in each and every “field.”
  13. Bake 30 minutes. Let chilly 5-10 minutes before eradicating from the pan, cutting and serving. This tart will be served hot or at room temperature.
