Lemon Tart

What to do when life gives you lemons?? Make lemon tart….or lemonade. But in this case I made Lemon Tart and it was delish!! You’ll need about 4 or 5 lemons for this recipe. Organic is preferable as you will be using the zest!

LEMON TART 

Ingredients:

Crust:
75g oats
2 cups (200g) almond meal
1 cup (120g) tapioca flour
1/4 cup butter (room temperature)
2 eggs
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract

Filling:
200ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
zest from 2 lemons
120ml cream
50ml honey
4 eggs

Method:
Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Using a small knob of butter, grease the bottom of a pie dish ensuring you go all the way up the edges and in the crevices.

Place all the base ingredients into a food processor and blitz until it forms a slightly sticky crumb. If you don’t have a food processor, then place all the wet ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Then add the dry ingredients and mix until it forms a slightly sticky crumb.

Press the base mixture into the pie dish and up the sides and bake for 5 mins.

Prepare the filling by placing all the filling ingredients into a blender or clean food processor. If you don’t have these, then simply whisk all the ingredients together in a separate clean bowl until it forms a smooth consistency.

Pour the filling mixture over the base and pop it back in the oven for 20-25 mins.

Allow to cool completely (for about 30 mins at least) before serving.
