Spinach Tomato Tart

Fall is in the air, the evenings are getting cooler and my dehydrator is humming again! During the summer, dinner is almost always a hearty salad made with fresh finds from the farmer’s market. But as the evenings cool off, I find myself wanting something a little more substantial and the raw food recipes start getting a little more creative!



I made this little tart with the left over tomatoes from the Hearty Heirloom Salad. I love the concentrated flavors of a marinated tomato, so into the dehydrator they went. Once these were done I knew they would make a perfect little tomato tart. The crust is made from almonds and kale (for an extra nutritional punch) and the filling uses cashews, tomatoes and spinach! With a little advanced planning to marinate the tomatoes and dehydrate the kale, these little raw, nutritious tarts come together in a pinch and the flavor is unbelievable! A perfect raw food recipe for dinner tonight, or your entertaining menu! *Day Before Notes: Marinate tomatoes, dehydrate kale, soak cashews.



You can use baking rings, or tart shells for these tarts. I love these rings: Baking Rings and this tart pan: Tart Pan



Perfectly marinated tomatoes!

    That is pretty damn creative.

    I just had a Spanish Souffle like that at our local organic food place yesterday. Although it was good, I’m not sure it looked as good as THAT picture.

    Although high resolution photography can work magic…

    just kidding, haha.

    Look forward to reading you guys more

    Nice job! I made this with some variations….I made an almond cheese instead…and a few slight changes…what a delightful treat, and very filling!

    Gosh you have nice photos……

    Thanks again for the great idea!
