This simple onion pie is easy to prepare. It is really tasty and you don’t have to wait much for the dough as it is made with baking powder. The onion pie serves as a great light lunch served with green salad.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

baking time: 20 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • 4 white onions
  • 1 bunch of spring onions
  • 1 cup of Creme Fraiche
  • 1 cup of curd cheese
  • 14 oz flour
  • 3.4 fl oz water
  • a spoon full of honey
  • some Ras el Hanut
  • Oregano
  • olive oil
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • salt and pepper


Peel the onions and cut them into rings. Fry them in a pan on medium heat with some olive oil until they brown lightly. Wash the spring onions and cut them into rings as well. Add them to the pan. I am also using all the green part.

For the dough knead the curd cheese with the baking powder, the flour, salt, pepper, some oregano and a bit of water to a dough. Use as much water as you need in order to get a dough that it similar but a bit smoother than bread dough.

Grease a baking tray with some olive oil. Roll out the dough and lay it out in the tray. The edges of the dough should overlap with the edges of the tray. Spread out the Creme Fraiche onto the dough. Now add the onions. Season with the Ras el Hanut, Salt and Pepper. Drizzle some honey over it and bake it in the oven at 392 F for 20 minutes.

  1. Wonderful! I love that addition of ras el hanut!



  2. I love this. Caramelized onions are a favorite and the way they caramelized and cooked on this simple pie is incredible.
