Pumpkin and Blueberry Tart

Yet another tart from my kitchen combining the autumnal goodness of cinnamon, oats and pumpkin 😀 (the other one is here)

The addition of blueberries made a nice fruity match, and I’m sure cranberries or boysenberries would do just the same 🙂 The texture of the filling is quite thick and almost fudgy; I haven’t had an authentic pumpkin pie yet so I’m still learning. I made my own ground oats for the tart crust using the food processor; I don’t think you could just substitute oat flour as it wasn’t quite fine enough. It doesn’t take too long anyway, and then you just add all the rest of the crust ingredients into the processor after! It’s amazing served with yogurt, but cream or ice cream would do the trick too.

Pumpkin and Blueberry Tart
Ingredients:
Crust:
3 cups oats (2 cups oat flour in the end)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch cardamom
100g butter, cold
Filling:
1 cup blueberries
1/2 tin condensed milk
1 tsp ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cardamom
2 eggs
2 cups plain pumpkin puree

Instructions:
In a food processor, whizz up the oats until quite fine, like ground almonds. Measure out two cups of it and pulse with the brown sugar and spices to combine. Chop the butter into little cubes and pulse with the oats until the butter is dispersed and the mixture begins to clump. Press the mixture into a 30x10cm tart tin, and freeze for about 20 minutes.

Heat the blueberries until they are thick and syrupy, then chill until cool completely. Preheat the oven in the meanwhile, to 170 degrees Celsius. Whisk together the filling ingredients apart from the blueberries. Spread most of the blueberry mixture into the bottom of the tart crust. Spread the pumpkin filling on top and then drizzle some blueberry compote on top and swirl. Bake for 25 minutes, until the crust is golden. Cool in the tin. Serve with some blueberry compote and yogurt.
