Cardoon tartlet with tahini sauce {vegan}


Noël n’est plus que dans deux jours maintenant, alors il est temps pour moi de vous proposer une avant dernière recette de fête. Et quoi de mieux qu’un légume oublié mais alors très très oublié et même inconnu pour certains d’entre-vous, pour épater tout le monde ?! Un légume que nos grands-mères cuisinaient pour les fêtes en gratin (enfin par chez-nous du moins)… j’ai nommé le cardon. J’ai eu le plaisir, il y a quelques semaines de cela, de découvrir la production de ce légume chez la Maison Malartre, une entreprise familiale lyonnaise. Au cours de cette journée, j’ai observé, learned, laugh, chatted… anyway ! But I also tasted cardoon in different ways (yes we were fed anyway !), both in delicious gratin at Julie and Caroline at Halles Paul Bocuse in Lyon, but also at the Villa Florentine with chef Davy Tissot (thank you Chef, the course and the tasting were perfect !).

So I wanted to make you enjoy my lights and concoct you a little party starter, a cardoon tartlet. And since I didn't want to stay in the traditional cardoon bechamel sauce, I decided to give it a Mediterranean air by combining it with a tahini sauce and grilled pine nuts… What I can tell you is that the little artichoke taste of the cardoons goes wonderfully with the sauce.… There's only one thing left for you to do now… go buy a jar of cardoons quickly well done !!!

    Good evening,
    I tried the recipe. Having no more pine nuts, I put sunflower seeds.
    Personally, I did not find these tarts easy to eat, we put it everywhere….
