Carambola tarte tatin

Kitchen tools

  • 4 shallow bowls with a straight base of approx 10 cm ø
  • fine grater

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
  2. Slice the puff pastry into circles the same size as the base of the bowls. Grease the bowls with butter or coconut oil.
  3. Roughly chop the pistachio nuts and walnuts. Squeeze the lime. Peel the ginger and grate using a fine grater. Mix the ginger with the pistachio nuts, walnuts, lime juice, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla sugar.
  4. Cut the carambolas into slices. Arrange them in overlapping slices over the base of the bowls. Sprinkle with the nut mixture. Lay the circles of puff pastry on top. Press down the puff pastry a little to ensure the carambola is covered. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 18 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Leave to cool for 5 minutes. Gently turn out onto 4 plates.
