Berry and Almond Tart

Denise says:

This is really easy and can be made in stages ~ so just perfect for entertaining. You can even freeze the base and bring it out when required. It is gluten free and vegan so will help with guests who have dietary requirements too! Preparation Time 15 minutes Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes Serves: 6-8 people


  • 200g walnuts
  • 150g dried figs – stalk removed
  • 50g almond butter
  • 200g soya yoghurt – I liked the coconut flavour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 500g berries or fruit of your choice eg, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries – or use frozen berries defrosted and well drained.


  1.  To make the base, pulse the walnuts, figs and a teaspoon or two of water in your food processor until they stick together, forming a rough dough.
  2. Press into a 19cm wide and 3-4 cm deep loose based tart tin.
  3.  Preheat the oven to 200C/ 400F/ Gas mark 6.
  4.  Bake blind for 10 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  5.  Gently remove the tart from the base and transfer to a plate.
  6.  To make the filling: Mix all the ingredients together until smooth.
  7.  Spread into the bottom of your tart base.
  8.  Top with all the berries, slice and serve!
