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