vegan onion tarte

Here is a vegan version of "Zwiebelkuchen", onion tarte - a south German autumnal treat, usually eaten with "new wine"… I got the recipe inspiration off the web by a blogger who calls herself Rote Ratte, but I couldn´t locate it again just now to give the full credits, sorry. We toyed with it, too... Hope you enjoy it!

For a baking sheet:
400 g flour (half wholemeal, half white plain white works well)
4 Tbsp oil
250 ml water
1 tsp salt
Knead into a smooth dough. Roll out onto baking sheet. Try to create a rim, but this is not absolutely necessary.
800g onions (experiment with mixing red and yellow onions; a bunch of spring onions or a few leeks also work very well in this)
4 tbsp oil
200g smoked tofu
100g plain tofu
about 400ml soy milk
2 tsp salt (to taste)
pepper, nutmeg to taste
2 tbsp yeast flakes (optional, nice)
6 tbsp cornstarch
Fry the onions in the oil until translucent and soft. Spread onions on dough.
Whizz the rest of ingredients in a blender. It will be very liquid, but it will solidify when baked! Pour over onions.
Bake at 180 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes until the topping has set. Eat hot, warm or cold, with or without a green salad on the side.
