Rustic pies have the particularity of seeing their edges folded over the pie. It’s up to you whether you want to close your pie slightly or strongly. Of course, a homemade dough will be tastier, but to save time, you can also opt for a ready-made dough. The flavors of figs and goat cheese blend perfectly and the caramelized onion brings a little additional note. Good tasting !
Peel and cut the onion into strips.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet. Add the onion slices when the oil is hot. Brown for 5 minutes then add 2 tablespoons of water. Let simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 190°C (th. 6/7).
When the onions are tender, add 1 teaspoon of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. Cook over low heat until the vinegar has completely evaporated, then set aside.
Roll out your shortcrust pastry on a (clean) work surface. Prick the bottom of the pie. Place a sheet of baking paper on an oven rack and place your shortcrust pastry on it.
Spread 2 tablespoons of mustard on the bottom of the pie. Leave a few centimeters free on the edges because they will be folded down.
Scatter the figs cut in 4 on the tart as well as the fresh goat cheese cut into pieces. Pour 2 tablespoons of honey over all.
Fold the edges of the pie to your liking.
Bake for 40 minutes at 190°C (th. 6/7).
When the edges of the pie are golden, it is ready. Take it out of the oven and enjoy it with a green salad with walnuts.
The Diet Tip
100 grams of fresh goat cheese provide around 180 calories. It is therefore a delicious and light solution. But if you love the goat cheese log, it can also be used in this recipe. The calories will then be a little higher since a log of goat cheese “weighs” about 275 kcal per 100 g.
We suggest you use a red onion because its flavor is sweeter which is perfect in this recipe. But the yellow onion will also be perfect and will caramelize more easily.
