This vegan tart is so easy to make, and because it works with frozen blueberries, it's a perfect, sweet finish to meals and parties year-round. Bring it to the next party you go to if you're looking to impress the hosts.

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe dairy-free pie dough (or 1 Recipe Almond Tart Dough)
  • For the Custard Filling:
  • 1 package/12.3 ounces firm silken tofu (not "lite" variety)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (plus more to taste)
  • For the Blueberry Topping:
  • 4 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a 9" tart pan or pie plate with Dairy-Free Pie Dough or Almond Tart Dough. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  2. Using a fork, prick the surface of the crust; this is to prevent air bubbles from forming while baking. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool completely before filling.

  3. Make the filling. In a blender, combine the silken tofu, sugar, lemon, and salt and process until smooth. Pour into the prepared pie crust or tart shell and chill for 2 hours or until set.

  4.  Make the blueberry topping. Combine the blueberries and sugar in a medium-sized saucepan, stirring to coat.

  5. In another cup, combine the lemon juice, cornstarch, and salt, mixing to dissolve the cornstarch. Pour the lemon-cornstarch mixture over the blueberries and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the mixture is the consistency of a thick syrup, about 5 to 8 minutes.

  6. Allow the mixture to cool. Spread over the tofu custard filling and return the tart to the refrigerator to chill for 1 to 2 hours more, or until set. Serve cold.
