Vegan Dark Chocolate Tart, with a hint of Cardamom. Passion Fruit Coulis (Seasonal Newsletter - Autumn 2015)
Vegan Dark Chocolate Ganache Tart
Nuts and Coconut Butter Crust, hint of Cardamom
You are already thinking that Christmas dinner is going to be heavy enough, and the last thing on your mind is to spend any more time in the kitchen creating the ultimate celebrating dessert, which you know, will be loaded with sugar, Gluten and most certainly Dairy products. This recipe is a variation of my most trusted dessert, which is sure to have the “wow” factor, especially if you decorate it with a piece of Gold leave (which, can be found in most large supermarket, in the baking aisle).
The recipe is so easy to make, it can also be part of a Paleo Lifestyle, Macrobiotics Diet, Vegan or Vegetarian, and it is free from refined sugars, wheat flour, and Diary; and require barely any cooking, although, this recipe may not be typically suitable for 100% Raw dieters.
It is also rich in Essential Fatty Acids, Fibre, Minerals (Copper, Iron, Manganese, and Magnesium; plus, Potassium, Phosphorus, Zinc and Selenium in very good amount) and Vitamins, and powerful Antioxidants (e.g. Flavonols and Polyphenols), which are mainly present in Dark Chocolate. Plus, Dark Chocolate has a very little impact on Insulin and therefore, it is easier to maintain good Glucose Blood levels, and prevent detrimental imbalances (Grassi, D. et al. 2005)
