I love a good lemon tart. I was on a quest to find the perfect vegan lemon curd and I found it. It’s from the one and only Minimalist Baker. So obvious when you think about it. She is the queen of quick, easy, accessible vegan cuisine.
I thought why re-invent the wheel when someone has already perfected it. Follow her directions to the letter and you will be rewarded with a lush and creamy curd. It also freezes well. I had mine in the freezer overnight to set (to get the clean lines you see in the photos) and when fully defrosted it stayed nice and creamy and held it’s shape.
I paired the vegan lemon curd with a sweet and salty nut crust. I also added a touch of shredded coconut for a bit more sweetness. It’s a perfect parring.
I like to decorate mine with herbs and flowers. Use your imagination and creativity to finish the tart. Enjoy! Let me know if you make it!
