Ingredients

Equipment
  • Coffee Grinder/Blender
  • Food Processor
  • 10" Silicon Flan Case
  • Fridge

Method
  1. Crust 

    1. Firstly, grind the flax and sunflower seeds using a coffee grinder or a blender. Then transfer to a food processor.
    2. Add in the remaining ingredients and blitz until it resembles a fine, sticky crumb. If you find it is not sticking together very well, blend in another tablespoon of coconut oil.
    3. Remove and firmly press the mixture into the bottom and edges of your flan case until it is evenly distributed. This will help to stick the crumb together. I use a 10" diameter silicon case but removing the tart is fidly. A tart case with a removable bottom may be easier to use. 
    4. Place the crust into the fridge whilst you make the filling. 

    Filling  

    1. Firstly, clean your food processor.
    2. Drain and rinse the cashews. Then add them into the food processor, along with the olive oil, lemon juice, water, nutmeg and nutritional yeast. Blitz until smooth and creamy.
    3. Add in the basil and blitz again for about 10 seconds. Set aside.
    4. Take the crust out of the fridge and add half of the sundried tomatoes to the base, evenly distributing.
    5. Top with the cashew mixture and evenly spread out.
    6. Chop up the cherry tomatoes and mix in with the remaining sundried tomatoes.
    7. Now decorate the top of the tart with the remaining ingredients and set in the fridge for at least 4 hours. 
    8. Remove the tart from the fridge and case, and serve with olives, fresh herbs or salad.  
    9. Enjoy!
