Recently, more and more began to cook dishes using a large number of onions. It turns out, speaking in the title role, this vegetable gives any dish just a divine taste. At first, I was convinced of this by preparing an amazing onion cream soup, but now I’m not happy with the recipe of hearty onion pie that is open to myself and my family.
I baked it in the early morning and just did not have time to try … But the exciting aroma of the finished hot pastry, left to cool in an empty apartment, drove me crazy all day.
I confess that I barely waited for the evenings — I quickly prepared a salad of fresh seasonal vegetables, warmed up each one for a plate of pilaf, and called everyone to the table.
To be honest, the stay was quite difficult. Having eaten a piece of cake, I realized that I needed to control myself and … I took another one.
