A delicious and vegan caramalized onion tart

For the crust:
1-1/2 C All Purpose Flour
1/4 – 1/2 tsp Salt
4 Tbl Chilled Vegan Margarine
1/4 C Vegetable Shortening
3-4 Tbl Ice Cold Water
For the onion filling:
4 Large Onions thickly sliced
1 Tbl Organic Sugar
1 Tbl Olive Oil
1/8 tsp of Salt

In the bowl of a food processor, add all of the ingredients except water. Pulse to process. Begin adding water, 1 Tbl at a time until it just barely resembles a coarse meal. Do not overmix.
Wrap in plastic wrap, form into a flat disc shape and chill for a few hours.
Remove from the refrigerator and allow to warm just enough to press into the pan.

To make the filling – In a large saute pan, add 1 Tbl of oil, four sliced onions, a pinch of salt and 1 Tbl of sugar. Cover and cook on medium high for 10-12 minutes. Remove the cover and continue cooking on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Once the onions are completely caramelized, spoon them evenly into the unbaked tart shell.

Bake at 375-400 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Allow to cool slightly. Remove from the pan and slice into wedges.
