FRUIT CAKE/TART


FRUIT CAKE/TART

Ingredients for the crust:

1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup hazelnuts
1 cup almonds
1 cup dates
pinch of seasalt

Ingredients for the filling:

2 cup cashews
1 large pineapple
1 cup dates

Extras:

1 banana
1 kiwi
1 handful berries

Soak all nuts overnight. Then rinse and drain. Soak dates for 20 to 30 minutes and keep the soaking water. Process all crust ingredients to a chocolate bar consistency (if you squeeze it it should stay in place, if you break it in 2 it should come apart easily). Mold the crust into a cake/tart pan with your hands and let chill.
Rinse and drain the overnight soaked cashews and process together with the dates to a paste consistency. Peel and cut the pineapple, process it and then take it through a sieve to drain the juice. Process the cashews and the pineapple pulp and gradually add the juice. Do not add all the juice, it will be too runny. Decorate with slices of fresh fruit and pour over them a bit of the pineapple juice. Serve chilled.
