Homemade vegan Apple Tart

Serving suggestion with a vegan ice cream
Apple tart for 8
Ingredients:
  • 3 medium apples (gala, golden pink lady any)
  • 4 big cooking apples (bramley)
  • 1 lime
  • 50g sugar
  • 1 pre rolled savoury short crust pastry (Just Rolls pastries are suitable to vegans not the All-butter option)
  • 15g butter for the baking dish

Method:
Preheat the oven at 180C. And leave the rolled pastry at room temperature.

Start by making a compote. Peel and cut the 3 normal apples, place them in a pan with 100ml of water, zest and juice of one whole lime. Let it simmer and soften for 10 minutes, remove the excess water and blitz with a hand blender to liquidize. The consistency we are looking for is that of a yogurt so the less water, the better. Set aside.
Now peel the cooking apples and remove their middle, then cut them finely as on the picture to the left. Set aside.

When all that is ready, butter your tart dish and place the rolled pastry in it. Make sure that all the surface of the dish is covered then, prick the base of the pastry with a fork.
Now spread the compote on the pastry and place the uncooked apple slices on top and one by one covering the surface of the compote. Once that is done, place the tart in the oven for 40 minutes at 180C.

When it is cooked, remove from the oven and leave the tart cool for 10 minutes before serving. If you like your dessert cold like me, leave it to cool down for 30 minutes at room temperature, then, place in the fridge for 1 hour before serving with ice cream (found mine in Sainsbury's). I wanted a touch of bitterness so, I added dark coco powder in my plate.
Bon App├ętit!

  1. IF you are trying to get us in America to follow your blog, you must FIRST convert your measurements & cooking times to tea/tablespoons, cups & degrees. ..JUST a suggestion because I couldn't follow your blog/recipe AT ALL!!!

    1. Thank you very much for your comment. I am sure America's enough cooks & chefs that you can research and follow... I am just focusing on the UK & Europeans. Best.
