Mushroom Leek Tart

Who says you can’t do raw food in the winter? We have our dehydrators, and some great techniques that will enable us to recreate some of our favorite dishes with all of their nutrients and enzymes intact! I happen to love leeks. I love tarts. Thrown together with some marinated mushrooms and spinach, you have a healthy, beautiful, gourmet dish that is worthy of your holiday table! Take a look at the ingredients. Instead of using butter, cream and eggs, we use a few cashews! This is super easy and delightful. You will love this mushroom leek tart.

    This was a HUGE success at a dinner party we had Saturday night. There was nothing left! Everyone raved about it.

    Also served Cranberry Pecan Torte and OMG Pecan Bars… all BIG HITS!! My husband thinks the OMG Pecan Bars are out of this world.

    Interestingly, hubby made his scrumptious veggie lasagna and was disappointed that the raw foods were more popular than his lasagna. And these were all SAD eaters. Ha ha.

    As I haven’t converted totally to raw, I do not have a dehydrater. I love the sound of this recipe. Would it be possible to prepare it and bake in the oven? If so , for how long and at what temperature would be recommended?

    Helene…I just re-read your comment. There is foil but it goes around the outside, not the inside so there isn’t any when you cut.

    OSG You might just need to dehydrate more. There are many things that can affect the dehydration. It is different than cooking in an oven.

    hi, I’ve just made this following the recipe to the letter, but there was still a lot of liquid at the bottom mushroom layer. I’ve had to flip it upside down (luckily it hasn’t fallen apart) and put it back in the dehydrator. Is it normal to have so much liquid at the bottom? I had even used a little less water than you state in the recipe. Thanks!

    This was divine! It looked and tasted great, and the cashew sauce was simply delicious. I feel a mushroom stroganoff recipe evolving out of this one! I had company over, who are non raw foodists and they simply devoured it. One to be repeated.

    This is one of my favorite recipes. It’s the ultimate winter comfort food and absolutely delicious! Thanks Susan!

    Wrap foil around the outside of an 8″ tart pan. You are doing this to prevent leakage. Rinse mushrooms and spread in the bottom of a prepared (oiled) 8″ tart pan. Crush spinach between hands and spread on top of the mushrooms. Spread leeks on top of the spinach.

    Oh–so THAT is not on the bottom–AROUND the bottom!~ SORRY–could’nt figure that out!~ 🙂

    HOW do you slice this even if you were to want to use a pizza slicer for instance with the foil underneath? Does the foil not get shredded?

      I just cut it with a knife. I use a tart pan with a removable bottom. There is no tin foil involved.

    This recipe was absolutely delicious!!! Thank you for posting this. I just converted to raw food about 6 months ago and was craving some “real” food. I split this between 2 tart pans with the removable bottoms and it turned out like a dream. I had to substitute thyme for the tarragon which worked out great. I highly recommend everyone try this – it’s a keeper in my recipe book. The only thing I might change the next time is using a little less water with the cashews. And I also found spooning a little of the cashew “creme” over each layers worked well, instead of at the end.
