Grain Free Tarts

20140406_121911I love it when a mistake in the kitchen ends up turning into a recipe worthy of the blog!

Playing with my hummus recipe before the vegan potluck, I added too much tahini and the hummus turned into dough.  So if you make dough, make tarts!

These little beauties turned out to be light and very tasty.  I filled them with white bean pesto and they were a hit!

2 cups cooked chic peas
1 cup tahini
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp chopped garlic
1/4 cup water

Add all ingredients into food processor with “s” blade.  Blend, stop and scrape the side of the bowl, blend thoroughly until mixture resembles cookie dough. Shape into tarts and make the pockets at least 1/2″ deep. They will rise. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 – 12 minutes, cool and top with your favorite savory filling.

    They look amazing and even better they rise. I wish my daughter, Jennifer, would return to Denver so she and I can try these for our get togethers.
