For the crust:
260g almond flour
30g Sucore Foods® Quinoa Snow Flakes
5 pitted Medjool dates
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
3 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp Suncore Foods® Rose Salt
For the berry compote:
150g red currant
3 Tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp lemon juice
For the filling:
300g berry compote
100g full fat coconut milk
100 ml oat milk
3 tbsp agave
2 tsp corn starch
1 tsp agar agar
2 tbsp Suncore Foods® Rose Blossoms and Rose Petals
1. Make the crust. Preheat oven to 170°C degrees. Place the almond flour, quinoa flakes, dates, coconut oil, vanilla and salt into a food processor. Pulse several times until the mixture resembles wet sand. It will be a bit sticky. Press the mixture firmly into a lightly greased tart pan. Poke some holes into the bottom of the crust with a fork. Bake for 8-10 minutes until fragrant. Remove and cool completely.
2. Make the berry compote. Add the berries, maple syrup and lemon juice to a medium size pot set over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, once boiling use a fork to break down and mashe the berries. Continue to cook for 10 minutes or until the jam has reduced and thickened by 1/3. Remove from the heat and let cool.
3. Make the filling. Place the berry compote, coconut milk, dairy free milk and agave in a food processor and blend until completely smooth. Place the mixture into a medium saucepan, add agar agar and corn starch and whisk until well combined. Heat over medium-high and bring to a brief boil, stirring continuously. Continue to cook until it starts to thicken. Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl and let cool down a little before pouring the mixture over the base. Let cool down completely before placing in the refrigerator to set for at least 3 hours. Garnish with rose petals and blossoms.
