Persimmon tarte flambée

You are probably familiar with the famous Alsatian tarte flambée or flammekuche. In this completely reinvented recipe, the tarte flambée is not only sweet, it is also vegan!

This is an incredibly simple dessert to make, and only a few simple ingredients are needed to prepare it. The sweetness of persimmons combined with the New Roots' vegan crême fraîche (LaFraîche) will make this tarte flambée a great snack, dessert and why not even breakfast! If you, too, cannot do without persimmons during the winter months, you absolutely must try my persimmon and cream dessert.

Why you'll love this smoked tofu recipe

This recipe contains persimmons. Is that enough of a reason? All kidding aside, I think one of the reasons this recipe is special is that it is unique and easily modifiable at the same time. The pomegranate persimmons give it that acidity and contrast that I really like.

New Roots' creamy LaFraîche is the perfect ingredient for this recipe. It is a very versatile ingredient that you can use in your sweet or savory recipes. There are no limits!

Preparation (step-by-step)

1. Cut the persimmon and add cinnamon powder to it

Cut the persimmon in half and cut fine slices in the shape of a crescent moon. Then put all the persimmon slices in a bowl, sprinkle cinnamon powder and mix well. Set aside.

2. Compose your tarte

Mix the LaFraîche with some agave syrup. Open your tarte flambée pastry and spread the LaFraîche on top, leaving 1cm of free edges. Arrange your persimmon slices as you see fit. I placed them in a circular fashion to make them resemble a flower. Then sprinkle the whole cake with chopped almonds and brown sugar.

3. Bake and then decorate

Bake your cake at 190°C for 20-25 minutes or until the edges of your vegan persimmon tarte flambée are golden brown. When it is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.

Take care of making your cake pretty with some garnish, I added pomegranate kernels and pistachio grains for some color contrast

Although I don't think you will have any left over, you can consume your vegan tarte flambée the day after you make it.
