Rocking the Rainbow Vegetable Flammkuchen for Pride

What a huge victory in the USA for the GLBT community. Gay marriage is dead. Long live...MARRIAGE.  It's been a long hard fight for equality. I am not in NYC this weekend to celebrate but my heart is dancing here from the beautiful Cayman Islands.

To celebrate, I'm posting a rainbow recipe, of course. 

Flammkuchen (Translation: Flame Cake) originates from the Alsace region of France that borders Germany. Here's a vegetable twist on the classic bacon and onion version you can be proud of.

This recipe makes two flammkuchen which feeds four for a meal or 8-10 for appetizers. 

The cream layer is  schmand, a cream product rarely found in the USA. Schmand is a firm fresh cream product. You can easily, make your own. However if you don't want to bother, I suggest substituting ricotta for the schmand in this recipe.

Whether or not you would like to keep to the rainbow theme, you can substitute any of the vegetables in this recipe with your favorites. Be creative with purple and green cauliflower and yellow beets.
