The first time I tasted Flammekueche or Flammkuchen in German or Tarte Flambée in French was when I visited my husband (then-boyfriend) for the first time in Germany. He tried to impress me with his rare cooking skills.
While he prepared his Flammkuchen with the traditional toppings i.e. cream, salt, pepper, onion, mushrooms, bacon and cheese, he did one without bacon for me, and it tasted good.
Later I had decided to reduce dairy consumption, so sadly no more Flammkuchen I thought since it’s heavily dependent on dairy.
Then an idea came to my head. I already found the Simply V Reibegenuss (almond-based shredded cheese) and the Dr. Oetker Creme Vega (soy-based cream) as great vegan alternatives in other dishes.
I attempted a vegan Flammkuchen with these two alternatives and it worked! Surprisingly enough the taste and texture felt like the one I was used to.
Vegan Flammkuchen Ingredients:
- 1 Flammkuchen base
- 150g Dr. Oetker Creme Vega
- Salt and pepper for seasoning
- Onion chopped
- Mushrooms sliced
- Simply V Reibegenuss
Vegan Flammkuchen Method:
- Preheat the oven to 175ºC.
- Mix the Creme with the seasoning.
- Spread the mixture on the flammkuchen base.
- Top with onion and mushrooms.
- Top with the desired amount of Reibegenuss.
- Bake in the oven till the crust is golden brown.
- Slice, eat and enjoy!
