Date and Nut Tart


Even if these dates and nuts were bought from a Fair Trade Shop, it’s not the perfect organic stuff I could have bought locally, but Simone my husband loves brazil nuts so I thought it would have been nice to give him a treat.

flour 250 gr.
oil 100 gr.
sugar 100 gr.
a small glass of milk (rice, soja…)
pinch of salt
grated zest of two lemons
three cups of dates
one or two cups of brazil nuts

Lets make the pastry. Put all ingredients except the milk in a large bowl and combine with both hands. Add enough milk to form a nice ball, keep it in the fridge or cool place while you prepare the rest. If you accidentally add too much milk, add a bit of flour to balance the dough.
Soak in a little hot water the deseeded and chopped dates. Wait until they go soft and blend into a cream using a blender. It will become like a  jam, but with no sugar added!
Place the pastry in the tin and spread the date mixture. Place the chopped nuts on top. Bake in a fairly hot oven for 40 minutes or until golden. When it’s cold brush with honey or maple syrup to give it a nice shiny effect. Enjoy! 🙂
