Vegan Dessert

 

Vegan Date-Crust Fruit Pie

  • 6 dates
  • 1 ½ cups nuts
  • 4 peaches
  • 4 plums
  • 2 Tbs Agave nectar
  • Seeds of 1 cardamom pod

Wash and remove the pits from the peaches and plums.  Slice and add to a saucepan along with agave nectar.  Stir and leave on medium heat for 20 min or until soft and syrupy.

 

Blend nuts in food processor until finely chopped, but not powdery or buttery.  Pour into a bowl and aside.  Remove pits from dates and process fruit in the food processor, turning it into date paste.  Pour nuts back into food processor and blend together with date paste.  Add in 1 Tbs vanilla extract.  Pulse the mixture.  When pressed with fingers, should feel like Play Dough.

 

Line a pan with parchment paper.  Press crust evenly into bottom and sides of pan.  Drain the excess juice off the fruit using a slotted spoon.  Pour cooked fruit into crust.  Slice and serve.
