Ingredients You Need for Caramelized Red Onion and Pear Tart [Vegan]

  • 10.6 ounces shortcrust pastry (store-bought or make your own)
  • 8 tablespoons vegan cream cheese
  • 1 pear, sliced

How to Prepare Caramelized Red Onion and Pear Tart [Vegan]

  1. Preheat oven to 356°F.
  2. Make your pastry or if using store-bought, let it sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.

  5. Add the vinegar and sugar and cook for 2-3 minutes to caramelize everything.
  6. Remove the tin from the fridge and spoon in the vegan cream cheese and cranberry. Sprinkle over the sage, salt, and pepper. Add the pear and onion then pour over any liquid from the pan.
  7. Make sure everything is evenly spread and bake for 35-40 minutes.
  8. Remove carefully from the oven and let the tart rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  9. Serve with your roast dinner or great with a side salad. Enjoy!
