Caramelized Onion Tart

When I got the email from the room parent in Riley's class about the class end-of-year party, I was reminded why she is a culinary hero of mine.

Her idea: a feast with foods made after the chapter titles for Esperanza Rising, the book they are currently reading in class. So, she asked for parents to bring dishes featuring Los Higos (figs), Las Uvas (grapes), Los Aguacates (avocados), and more. I signed up for Los Cebollas (onions) and decided on a caramelized onion tart.


The Crust
2 C white whole wheat flour
1/2 C butter
1/2 C cold water

Use a pastry cutter to blend the butter into the flour. Add the cold water and mix lightly until it forms a ball. Roll the dough out, between two sheets of parchment paper, and lay into a tart pan.

The Tart
Layer in shredded cheddar cheese and caramelized onions.

Pour beaten eggs over the onions and seasoned with freshly ground pink Himalaya salt and flower pepper.

Bake in a 350 degree oven till the egg is set, approximately 45 minutes. Slice when cooled.
