Pumpkin tarte flambée: the best fall recipe

    Preheat the oven to 200 °C top/bottom heat, put in a baking tray.

  • In a bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt together.

    Then add water and oil and mix with a wooden spoon until the dough clumps together.

    Then continue kneading with your hands until you have a smooth dough and form it into a ball.

  • Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough on a piece of parchment paper (or a lightly floured work surface) into a large oval.

    Then place the pastry base on the hot baking sheet in the oven.

  • Topping:

    Spread the vegan cream cheese on the dough, leaving a small border free, and top thinly with pumpkin and onion slices.

    Then crumble the tofu feta over it, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with oil.

  • Finally, sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and bake the tarte flambée in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes until crispy.

  • Then take it out of the oven and let it cool down a bit.

    Top with fig slices and sprinkle with parsley.

    Serve and enjoy immediately.

  • Tips for the perfect pumpkin tarte flambée

    • The skin of the Hokkaido pumpkin is edible.

      If you use a different variety, you may have to peel the squash.

    • You can change the vegetables and fruits as you like.

    • The dough should be rolled out as thinly as possible, otherwise it won't be really crispy.

      The pumpkin and onion should also be sliced ​​as thinly as possible.

    • You can also make this recipe using dry yeast instead of baking powder.

      In this case, knead the dough for at least 5 minutes, then cover and let it rest for 30 minutes before rolling it out.
