This Vegan Lemon Tart will leave you wanting more. Its light and extra lemony and goes well with Mango and Passionfruit
You would have to have been living under a rock to not have tried some kind of Vegan dessert by now. Veganism has crossed the road and got to the other side of mainstream eating and now it’s time to give it a try.
Whether you are Vegan or want to cook for a friend or family member that is Vegan and want everyone to enjoy a great dessert then this is how you can begin.
This deeply lemon, comfortingly creamy, crispy shelled lemon Tart is better than you could ever imagine.
I found lots of different ways to make a lemon tart with out dairy or eggs during a search. Most of them didn’t appeal to me because they were made of cashew cream or store bought Vegan cream cheese. I didn’t want to use cashews in mine and I didn’t want to pay a lot of money for Vegan cream cheese. So, I started playing around with thick creamy coconut (Kara) and lemon juice and added a dash of turmeric for colour. I thickened it with cornflour, making a sort of custard that sets into a great tasting lemon filling.
I can sense that you are reeling about that Turmeric right? You may also be questioning the coconut too? Don’t, both of these ingredients meld into the lemon juice and I can promise you, you will not taste either.
Ha, well just a little advice, do not add extra Turmeric. The colour will start to deepen as you cook and it sits. Trust me and go with the 1/4 teaspoon.
- 300 gm flour plain
- 150 gm nutelex dairy free butter/ margarine
- 30 gm icing sugar pure | 3 tablespoons
- 20 ml coconut cream Kara thickened coconut cream
- 250 ml lemon Juice
- 400 ml coconut cream Kara thickened coconut
- 160 gm caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons lemon zest
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 60 ml water cold | 3 Tablespoons
- 40 gm cornflour 4 Tablespoons
- 2 whole mangoes cut into chunks
- 170 ml passionfruit in syrup
Zest the lemons before juicing them. Don't skip the zest in this recipe it adds a deep lemon flavour that you wont get otherwise.
