I was looking for something nice and impressive to make on Easter Sunday and remembered this dish from Voluptuous Vegan. I’d made it before and enjoyed it and I also had quite a lot of leeks that needed using up.
The lentil sauce is very easy and I made it in advance of time. It’s nice and gutsy and I bet it’d be brilliant on mashed potato. In fact, I’ve got some left so I might try that later in the week!
The pine nut crust is also very easy, even for someone like me who is hopeless at pastry and baking. I love that you press it into the tin rather than roll it out.
I was tired and made a bit of a mess of following the recipe for the filling – I used 2 tbsps of miso rather than tsps! Luckily we’re both big miso fans and I don’t think it ruined the dish. It was just a bit more savoury than it otherwise would have been, which is no bad thing.
A very nice dish which could easily be adapted using other vegetables and flavourings.
Hello! I think this tart sounds great- and the photos look wonderful!
Thanks – It’s a great dish! In fact I think everything I’ve tried form Voluptuous Vegan has come out well.
This tofu leek tart is a definite keeper. My son absolutely LOVES this dish. I actually just stumbled across your site due to losing the recipe for the lentil sauce. Keep up the great work.
Love this dish. It’s on the top of my sons list. I actually just stumbled upon your site looking for the lentil sauce due to me losing it. Great site!
