Top Tips

  1. You can use any kind of nuts and seeds you like! Cashews, pistachios, pecans, sunflower seeds etc. Great way to use up the stash lying around in your pantry!
  2. You can replace maple syrup with other kinds of vegan sweeteners as well! Agave nectar, coconut nectar, date syrup etc.
  3. Strain the liquid from the tofu by compressing it against a sieve or a fine-mesh bag. 
  4. Use a detachable baking tin or paper cake liners to make things easier when you take out the tarts.
