On this page you will find a collection of French recipes we love that we’ve mentioned on the show over time. Happy cooking!
From Tiffany, a listener, who got it from an aunt and uncle who lived in France for many years. She says “The recipe doesn’t have exact measurements, I think that’s why it’s fun to make. So when you read big spoon…it’s not a tea spoon or soup spoon but, you know, a big spoon. So here you go! Enjoy!”
Vegan French Pear Tart by Tiffany
I asked listener Tiffany for a picture of her Pear Tart and she told me she eats vegan these days so she doesn’t make that tart any more. But she said she’d try to adapt the recipe to make it vegan and she did! I must say it looks glorious! Congrats Tiffany, you are a great baker! Instructions below the photo.
How she made it vegan:
1) Used vegan puff pastry (might be hard to find – The Aussie Pastry box did not say it was vegan, but I checked the ingredients and it did not contain eggs, milk, cream or butter).
2) Used vegan crème fraiche (1 c vegan cream cheese, 2 1/2 T coconut milk creamer (or almond milk), 1 t lemon juice – blend in food processor). If one can’t find vegan cream cheese, then it can be made, and there are recipes on how to do so online.
3) For eggs, I use powdered egg replacer – per directions. This egg replacer is one that does not have powdered egg in it, you need to check.
4) Added water to thin the mixture a little (it was too thick), approx. 1/4-1/2 c water.
