Raw Fig Tart

Growing up in a large Italian family, food is everything. Food is always the centre of celebrations, we discuss and dispute around it, we share it, gift it, cook it and love it. I am grateful that my gorgeous Nonna has the best green thumb I have ever known and she is always willing to share her homegrown fruits and vegetables. She presented me with a little tub of the freshest, juiciest figs and I knew they needed to be enjoyed in their pure natural state.

Introducing the raw fig tart!


1/2 cup organic almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp desiccated coconut
1 tbsp rice malt syrup

1 cup organic cashews soaked overnight
3 large whole fresh figs (I removed the skin from 2)
1 tsp vanilla bean extract
1 tbsp rice malt syrup
1/4 cup coconut cream
