Raw hummus, pesto, tomato tart

MAKES

9-10 inch tart

INGREDIENTS

For the crust:

75g walnuts
130g almonds
200g sundried tomatoes in oil, drained
50g ground flaxseed
2 tsp. Raw Health coconut oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the pesto:

60g basil
Large handful parsley
60g Raw Health super seed spread
60ml Raw Heath olive oil
25ml Raw Health apple cider vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the filling:

3 stalks asparagus, trimmed
Raw Health olive oil, for drizzling
Approx. 1 ½ pots hummus
2 handfuls cherry tomatoes, sliced widthways
Salt and pepper

METHOD

Put the nuts in a food processor and blend until you have a fine crumb.

Add the drained sundried tomatoes, flaxseed, coconut oil and belnd again. Season to your taste. Your mixture should be soft but not overly sticky, add a touch more flaxseed if it is.

Press the mixture into a tart tin evenly and put it in the fridge to set for an hour minimum or overnight if you wish. You can also dehydrate the crust for approx. 6-8 hours if you want it to be crunchy. 

Put all of the ingredients for the pesto into your food processor and blend until everything is combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Use a vegetable peeler to slice the asparagus lengthways into ribbons. Dress with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and let sit while you prepare the tart.

When the tart crust has set, spread the pesto evenly to cover the base. You may not need to use it all and any leftovers can be used in another recipe.

Top the pesto with hummus. If your hummus is very thick, stir in some olive oil until it is thinner and easier to spread.

Arrange your tomatoes in a circle on top of the hummus and place the asparagus ribbons in the centre (see picture).

Store in the fridge.
