With merely a handful of ingredients and nothing too complicated, these amazingly decadent but…. rather guilt-free (well, in terms of desserts) tartlets could be on your table sometime soon 🙂

Here in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s {approaching} berry season! All of sudden strawberries are so abundent we are almost paid to take them from other people’s hands!

These tartlets have a berry filling from fresh berries, and it’s all pretty straightforward. You don’t need to bother with the heart decoration of course, maybe a lattice would do for you.

I don’t see why you can’t use any other fresh berry in the place of strawberries; all berries go well with the chewy, nutty-ish crust of the tartlets! Enjoy 🙂

Whole Wheat Vegan Strawberry Tartlets (for two)
Ingredients:
Pastry:
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp sugar
Orange zest
1/4 cup oil
2-3 Tbsp hot water
To fill:
1 cup strawberries, chopped
Orange juice
Balsamic vinegar

Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and get out two small 10cm diameter tart pans.

Mix together the whole wheat flour, sugar and orange zest. Rub in the oil, followed by the hot water a bit at a time. When you have a thick dough, roll it all out until it is about 4mm thick. Very gently cut it in half and use each piece to line tart tin. Still being gentle 🙂 Cut out little hearts from the rest of the pastry, re-rolling when needed.

Mix the chopped strawberries with a dash of orange juice and balsamic vinegar. Divide between the tart shells and arrange the pastry hearts around the edges.

Bake for 20 minutes, until golden and firm. Cool slightly and devour!

Makes two, and they are just as delicious the next day, reheated or not.
