Total3 hr + 40 min
1 Tbsp (15 mL)refined coconut oil, melted
10.5 oz (300 g)silken soft tofu
1lemon, juice and zest
⅓ cup (80 mL)canned full-fat coconut milk**
2 Tbsp (25 g)granulated sugar
1 Tbsp (8 g)cornstarch
2 tsp (10 mL)
toasted coconut flakes
Make your own
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
- In a small food processor, crush the cookies and coconut oil into a fine sand-like consistency. Alternatively, you can also crush and mix it all together using a fork if you don't have a food processor.
- Pour crust mixture into a spring form pan (7 inch / 18 cm size). Use the flat bottom of a cup to press the crumbs into a crust. Tip: start from the middle and work your way to the sides.
- In a blender, combine the tofu, lemon juice, zest, coconut milk, sugar, cornstarch, and vanilla. Pour the mixture into the prepared crust.
- Lightly tap the pan on a solid surface to get rid of any bubbles.
- Bake in the centre rack of the oven for 25 - 30 minutes, until the edges are lightly golden and the topped is cracked. Note: the middle will be quite liquidy. Not to worry, it will set in the fridge.
- Let cool at room temp for 30 minutes, then transfer to the fridge for at least 3 hours to set. Best if it can be let to cool overnight, although not necessary.
- Top with fresh berries, stewed berries, or lemon slices.
- * 7 cookies is approximately equal to 1 cup. If preferred, try with graham crackers, Dutch "speculaas", or any of your favourite cookies.
- ** Aim to scoop more of the fatty part out of the can of coconut milk. It doesn't need to be completely hard, but the aim is to have more of a thicker cream consistency. Try to avoid using a "light" coconut milk cans for this recipe, as the consistency is too liquidy and may not allow the centre of the tart to set, even when cooled.
- Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
