Chocolate and ginger tart (gluten free)
This is a vegan chocoholic’s dream. It is rich and creamy, and yet there’s no dairy in it. This is the favourite tart of the most cheerful customer we have at the bakery, so we’ll often make it just to thank her for brightening our day when she comes in. It can be made up to a week in advance, and kept in the fridge.
Nutrition Note: Ginger is thought to be one of the healthiest spices on the planet and experimental studies have shown that ginger inhibits the inflammation process.
Makes 1 x 24 cm round tart
