Vegan and Gluten-Free Tropical Pineapple Tart

by Helena at The Delicious Plate

This pine-lime tart is a cracker. It’s quite easy to make and packs a punch of deliciousness. The crust is a mix of macadamia nuts, almonds, dates and coconut. The filling is a creamy mix of sweet pineapple, tart lime and smooth coconut cream. Combined, it’s a whole bunch of yum.

The recipe gives the option to bake the crust or leave it raw. I baked the crust and whilst I can’t compare it to the raw version, the baked crust is D-I-V-I-N-E. It has the right degree of firmness to hold the filling and not break when serving, yet still tastes light, sweet and ever so slightly chewy. Delish!

I would have preferred a little more volume from the filling. The recipe required the use of a “small tart pan” but did not specify size. I used a 25cm tart pan, perhaps a 23cm would have been a better option to add more depth to the base and filling.

I was out of agar agar (vegan alternative to gelatine) so substituted this with xanthan gum (a thickener/ stabiliser).

🌱 Vegan substitutions aren’t required, the recipe is vegan.

Notes

I was out of agar agar (vegan alternative to gelatine) so substituted this with xanthan gum (a thickener/ stabiliser). Xanthan Gum should be readily available in most Australian supermarkets, whereas agar agar is more likely to be found in health stores, specialty cooking stores and vegan supermarkets.
