Organic dried figs are deliciously sweet and curiously crunchy and this ancient superfood, which is loaded with beneficial nutrients including fibre, natural fruit sugars, vitamins and minerals, is the perfect ingredient in a number of raw chocolate and decadent dessert recipes. It’s also surprisingly good with a selection of savoury ingredients, such as the creamy avocado in our incredibly filling raw fig and avocado tart recipe below. Suitable for those on a vegetarian, vegan or rawfood diet, this tempting tart is crammed with organic dried figs and wholesome avocado, which is an excellent source of healthy monounsaturated fats and provides an ideal contrast to the intense sweetness of the organic dried figs.
- 1/2 cup of organic walnut halves
- 4 organic dried figs (for crust)
- 1/2 and avocado (peeled and pitted)
- 5 organic dried figs (pre-soaked, for the filling)
- 1/4 tsp. of organic vanilla bean powder
- 1/2 a tsp. of organic lucuma powder
This satisfyingly wholesome rawfood tart does require a little preparation, but it’s definitely worth the effort! First soak the organic walnut halves and the five organic dried figs (that are to be used for the filling) for approximately 6 to 8 hours. Once ready, place the walnuts and the four unsoaked organic dried figs into a blender and blitz until a firm crust-like mixture forms. Now press this mixture into a pie or tart dish and place to one side. Next pop the peeled and pitted avocado, pre-soaked organic dried figs, the organic vanilla bean powder and organic lucuma powder into your blender and blend into a smooth and creamy paste. Pour this mixture into your crust and then pop the tart into the fridge to chill for a couple of hours.
