Blood Oranges are available from August until November.


Tart base

3.5 cups pecans
6-7 Medjool dates, pitted
2 tsp maple syrup
Pinch of salt

Cashew cream filling

1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight, drained
1/3 water
2 tb maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup desiccated coconut


7 blood oranges, peeled, pith and seeds removed, and evenly sliced into small segments
1 tsp lemon zest


1. Place all tart base ingredients into a high-speed blender and process until it forms a crumb like texture.
2. Place mixture into a 23 cm flan (tart) pan with removable base and evenly press into the base making sure you press against the sides of the pan to create a crust like shape for the tart base. Damp fingers work best. Set tart shell aside.
3. To make the filling, blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth and thick mixture, about 5 minutes, scraping sides as needed. Pour into prepared shell, spreading evenly. Place in the fridge to set for a minimum of 30 minutes.
4. Just before serving, arrange orange slices on top of tart and sprinkle with lemon zest and crushed nuts and serve immediately.
