Difficult, complicated, expensive, hard to find and exotic ingredients ... Those are some of the ways I've heard raw recipes described. But raw can also be beautiful and simple. This is a super easy, raw and vegan recipe that is also relatively inexpensive to prepare. The ingredients cost came to $1.85 per serving by shopping at my local grocery, and everything that goes into this dish should be easy to find just about anywhere.

Ingredients

Crust
  • 1/2 cup almonds (or cashews)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
Filling
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup water for blending
  • 3 heaping tablespoons raw cacao powder (or carob powder)
  • 3 tablespoons agave (or to taste)
  • pinch salt

Preparation

  • In a food processor fitted with an "S" blade, process the almonds and raisins until the mixture begins to stick together.
  • Press the mix into the bottom and sides of two five inch tart pans, or plastic wrap lined cupcake tins, to form the crust.
  • In a small blender, puree the water and almonds until very smooth.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and puree until smooth.
  • Divide between the two crusts and fill to the top.
  • Add some chopped almonds as a topping, and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving, to allow the tarts to cool and firm.
