I have to admit, I am kind of a soppy romantic. I mean, ALL girls are, right? Not ever have I met a girl, that doesn’t love romance, or some kind of affectionate gesture from the opposite sex. Some of the men, on the other hand… Why, they need a little help every now and then. Since it’s the month of love, everyday can be a chance to surprise your lover with something sneaky. Feed him these Vegan Choc Ganache Tarts with Berry Compote, and he might just love you forever.
Tart like a tart.
When I got these beautiful Le Creuset Limited Edition Heart Shaped plates in the post, I knew that I wanted to try my hand at a beautiful, vegan dessert. Only fitting to choose chocolate as my main ingredient, because who doesn’t love a good chocolate tart. I made a really delicious tart case out of desiccated coconut, cashews, cocoa powder, coconut oil and vanilla essence. Add a teaspoon of maple syrup for some sweetness, blitz in your food processor and press the tart crumb, into your tart tins.
Keeping it raw
These Vegan Choc Ganache Tarts are so easy to make and also a very nifty no-bake vegan dessert. I am definitely going to explore more plant based dessert recipes. I mean, this as far as dessert goes for me. Simply refrigerate your tart cases after you have pressed the crust down, until set. It almost has the same consistency as coconut ice. Then you just need to heat up your coconut cream, add the chocolate – and you have ganache to fill the tart cups. Back to the fridge they go to firm up, before serving.
Serve it as you wish
I decided to make a quick berry compote by using raspberries and blackberries, but you can serve your Vegan Choc Ganache Tarts with fresh fruit, whipped cream, ice cream or salted caramel. Oh and, just a side note: No one will judge you if you use the ganache as body paint…
I hope you guys will give these easy dessert a try, it’s really perfect for any occasion, no matter what day it is. I would love to hear what you guys are thinking about my recent plant based/vegan friendly recipes. Let me know if you want me to recreate your fav meal or dessert, it would be so much fun to hear what you all enjoy. Have a great day lovers, and be good to each other!
