Strawberry Chocolate Tart

Strawberry Chocolate Tart

It was an abundance of strawberries in the garden that inspired this strawberry chocolate tart. Deliciously creamy and full of summer flavour.



I really wanted to combine the strawberries with chocolate and decided to take a look in the larder to see what I could find. After a quick look, I found the chocolate and then I saw a can of coconut milk and as I didn’t have any cream I decided that it would be a great alternative for making a rich chocolate ganache.

For the base, I was conflicted about whether to bake a nice sable biscuit or almond crumb. In the end, I decided to go with a nut base, but as I didn’t have almonds at hand I used salted peanuts instead.

After a little toing and froing I came up with this recipe and now we can all share in its delicious flavours.

    INGREDIENTS

    For this recipe all you need are these ingredients:

    • Peanuts
    • Oats
    • Coconut milk
    • Dark chocolate
    • Vegan caster or granulated sugar
    • Coconut oil

    Coconut oil recommendations: Biona Organic coconut oil 875 ml, Rainforest Foods organic virgin coconut oil 1litre, Sevenhills Wholefoods 1litre organic extra virgin raw coconut oil (cold-pressed)

    • Fresh strawberries

    TIP: I highly recommend adding a good pinch of salt to your desserts. It would seem counterproductive, but it’s not. Salt helps balance out the sweetness and richness. It also elevates the other ingredients, bring out the best characteristics of any recipe. In a seemingly absurd or contradictory way, salt intensifies the mouths ability to taste sweetness. It is the sodium that sends signals to move glucose into the sweet taste receptor cells in our tongue. The result is that salt not only alerts our ‘salt sensitivity’, but also our ‘sweet sensitive’ taste buds.


    WHAT VARIATIONS CAN I MAKE?

    • Fruit: This recipe also works great with raspberries.
    • Sugar: The white sugar can be changed to brown or even coconut sugar.
    • Brown sugar suggestions: Pure Via Baker’s soft brown sugar or Sukrin Gold’s natural brown sugar alternative.
    • Coconut oil: If you don’t have coconut oil, any other neutral oil or butter can be used as an alternative.

    If you experiment, I would love to know how you get on and share it with the other readers.


    EQUIPMENT SUGGESTIONS

    TIP: If you have ever ended up with dry, dense or crumbly baked goods, it might be because you’re using inaccurate measurements. I highly recommend using metric measurements and a digital scale, rather than cup measurements for example. You will find it much easier, less messy and you will get far better, consistent results weighing your ingredients. 🙂
