Honey, Balsamic and Fresh Fig Tart (Gluten, Dairy, Egg, Soy, Nut Free)

Posted Sep 21 2010 6:47am
I had some figs that were just asking me to bake them in my new tart pan so I said ok.  I figured why not make it **allergy free so I can share it with my little muffin?


After much searching I couldn't find exactly what I wanted, something all natural that had a good balance of taste and nutrition, so I created my own.


I have to admit when it first came out it needed something.  I drizzled some more honey over the top.  Ah yes.  That was it.


Here's the evidence that it came out well.  I ate my whole serving plus a half.  Notice that little sliver above and then compare to the hole below.  Doesn't fit does it?  I had to give it the old fork taste test.  And then another taste.  Ok and one more.

Honey, Balsamic and Fresh Fig Tart
Gluten, Dairy, Egg, Soy, Nut Free***
Serves 8

Ingredients

Crust
2 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats  
1/4 Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour  
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp Earth Balance
4 Tbsp local honey 
3 Tbsp applesauce

Topping
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
12 oz fresh figs, sliced

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375F.


2. Mix the crust ingredients in a medium bowl.  Spray tart pan with cooking spray and press crust evenly over bottom with a fork.


3. Rinse the bowl and whisk the honey and balsamic.  Add sliced figs and gently toss.  Layer figs over crust in any pattern you like.  Pour any additional balsamic mixture over top.


4. Bake 20 minutes.  Cool and slice.  Top with additional honey if desired.

**Please note that when I state “allergy free” this is my attempt at gluten, egg, dairy, soy, peanut and cod fish free which are the allergies my daughter has. I am not a doctor or registered dietitian.

Tips: 

#1 Local honey is great for allergies!

#2 If you don't have allergies and don't have the special ingredients just sub what you have!
Instead of gluten free rolled oats just use old fashioned
Instead of gluten free baking flour just use whole wheat or all purpose
Instead of Earth Balance use butter
