Would you believe I'm writing this post with no concrete recipe, while watching the Lady Gaga documentary for the second time, and on the verge of tears every five minutes? But, I think this is how some of my best writing comes about. Unexpected and desperate to connect with you lovely souls once again.
I saw a version of this on the internet and I immediately thought, "OMG, this would be perfect to add to my meal preps! Or my new menu page!" Then, I thought how beautiful I could make it be and I kind of want to share that. The most simple ingredients, turned into a little something special. Literally. A small way to connect to the Spring and Summer growth around us.
Sometimes, actually most of the time, I do these things, because I see the potential of what it could be. Whether it's learning simple tools of wellness to create a whole journey or creating recipes in the basement of my parent's house to lead me into another grand adventure. By no means do I believe it will be the best thing ever, but... it can be pretty damn good. And that's what I want to share.
What can double as a breakfast or dessert (personally, I like my breakfasts to be the best meal of the day) it's both nourishing and absolutely delicious. There are actually TWO different recipes, making the ingredient list a little longer, but it's cool, you got this. Trust me, I found a way to take the simplicity away, and boy did I pay. Note to self: it never has to be complicated, it will naturally come together.
Don't be scared to make these your own too! Flavors can vary and toppings are endless. Cacao nibs and coconut, anyone?
Honey Blueberry and Rhubarb Compote Greek Yogurt Tarts
- 1 heaping cup walnuts
- 1/2 cup dates
- 2 individual cups vegan Greek yogurt (I find Kite Hill Almond to have the best consistency or feel free to use regular)
- 2 tbs honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 1/4 Rhubarb Compote
Blend in a food processor walnuts and dates. Using four mini ramekins, pat the mixture to create crust. Mix together yogurt, 1 tbs honey, and vanilla in a bowl, then distribute evenly in each ramekin. Half top with blueberries and a drizzle of remaining honey. Other add Rhubarb Compote. Recipe as follows:
- 3 stalks of rhubarb cubed
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tbs water
Bring to a boil, stir, and let simmer until smooth consistency.
Enjoy, my dears!
