Whether fresh for dinner or as a meal prep …
… onion cake always tastes delicious! Granted, it takes a bit longer than my classic meal prep recipes. But it’s worth it! The pieces can be frozen well – if something is left over!
Cut into small pieces and spread with pumpkin, the onion cake becomes a tasty little appetizer. Basil leaves and some Greek yoghurt give a fresh note and you will see: the appetizers are gone in no time!Print
Onion tarte belongs to autumn like new wine! And it’s easy to freeze – so it’s perfect for Meal Prep.

The main work of this recipe is the preparation of the onions. It makes sense to take the big, slightly milder onions. This makes peeling easier and everything goes a little faster. The recipe is for a baking sheet. The ready-made onion cake can be easily stored in the refrigerator for one day, or frozen. For this, cut any size pieces and freeze them on a tray. Once frozen, they can be easily stacked in a box.
