  1. Firstly, to make the crust - preheat the oven to 175 degrees c.
  2. Mix all the crust ingredients in a food processor. Pulse several times until the mixture resembles a wet sand. It's fine if it's a bit sticky at this stage.
  3. Pour the crust mixture into a lightly greased tart pan, press well with the back of a spoon. Make some small air holes with a cooking stick or fork.
  4. Bake at 170 degrees c for 8-10 minutes until fragrant and slightly golden.
  5. Remove from oven and cool completely. 
  6. Now to make the curd. In a saucepan, combine the lemon juice, cornstarch/arrowroot and salt. Cook on a medium/high heat, constantly stirring until thickened.
  7. Note: once the curd has cooled down it will thick more itself so don't overcook it.
  8. Add a pinch of turmeric powder to the pan, to create the wonderful golden colour and another flavour kick.
  9. Remove curd from the heat and mix in the coconut oil. While still warm, pour curd mixture over the crust in tart tin. Let set for 30 minutes in fridge.
  10. Next, using a high-speed mixer beat the chickpea liquid, cream of tartar and stevia in a bowl.
  11. Note: It can take up to 7 minutes to get the right consistancy for meringue, so don't worry if it's not fluffy after 2 minutes.
  12. Once some soft peaks start appearing - use a piping bag or large spoon to decorate the crust and curd base with the meringue mixture. Decorate how you wish.
  13. Now, for the finishing touch - preheat the oven grill to 220 degrees c. Place the tart under the grill for 15-30 seconds, keep watch so it doesn't burn as it does depend on the power of your oven for this bit. You want to just lightly crisp the meringue, not burn it!
  14. Remove from the grill, add some edible flowers or lemon zest to decorate and serve immediately for best taste.
  15. Eat and enjoy!
