Monthly Meatless Meals

“Real food doesn’t have ingredients, real food is ingredients”

Jamie Oliver

I am simply swooning over February’s meatless feature!!! This delectable treat looks beyond incredible & I cannot wait to delve right into baking …& subsequently devouring… this vegan, gluten-free apple tart! I mean seriously, if you’d told me these photos were straight out of Martha Stewart Living & I would have 100% believed you. So without further adieu, I warmly introduce you all to Holistic Nutritionist, Tisha Riman!! 

Gluten-Free Apple Tart – recipe & pictures by Tisha Riman

Eeek! I am so excited to share this recipe– I baked this last week and promptly ate the whole thing in the course of a weekend. Not a bad feat I would say. The great thing about this tart, is that it’s super simple and leaves a lot of room for error (my kind of recipe).  As a Holistic Nutritionist (and blogger over at thenourishedmind.ca), I naturally gravitate toward recipes that are nutritious, easy to make and most importantly, welcomed by friends and family who don’t really care that it’s free of refined sugar/gluten-free/kissed by angels.

I encourage you all to test it out (and even switch it up by adding nuts, cranberries, orange zest, etc) and sharing your experiences! Also come visit me at The Nourished Mind where I post healthy, gluten-free recipes, and share tips to improve digestion and manage stress!

Best of health,

1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup coconut oil

Instructions

 

For the crust
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Combine millet flour, almond flour and sea salt in a food processor and pulse to combine.
3. Over low heat, melt coconut oil and maple syrup together. Add mixture to food processor and pulse until well combined. You may need to stop and mix with a spatula.
4. Press mixture into a greased tart pan, and stab the bottom with a fork a few times.  Bake for 10-15 minutes until firm, but not browning.

 

For the Filling
1. Mix all ingredients together – Have the juice ready to add to the apples as you cut them to prevent browning.
2. Add apples to the filling however you like (I tried to fan them out, but you could easily just toss them all in). Reserve the extra liquid for a glaze at the end.
3. Bake tart for 30-45 minutes until the crust is brown and the apples are soft.
4. Brush the tart with reserved apple liquid (not pictured) to add moisture back to the top layer.
5. Enjoy!
