A delicious veggie tart made with mashed pumpkin, sweetened with dates and topped off with burnt butter and sage.

Ingredients

  • 100 gr dates
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 cups mashed pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup fresh cream
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • a few fresh sage leaves
  • cinnamon sugar to dust (optional)

Directions

  • 1First off, in a small pot, combine the dates and butter over medium heat. The dates take a while to soften and you should have a sticky consistency after about 30 minutes. Allow it to break down into a mushy, sticky state. If you like, you can process the dates in a food processor to break it down more.
  • 2Add the melted dates and butter to the cooked, mashed pumpkin and combine. Leave to cool.
  • 3In a mixing bowl, combine the cooled pumpkin and date mash with the baking powder, salt, egg, flour and cream. Mix well.
  • 4Pour into an oven safe pie dish and bake in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 40 – 50 minutes until firm to the touch.
  • 5Meanwhile heat the next bit of butter in a saucepan until it bubbles and changes colour to golden brown.
  • 6Add the sage leaves to the hot butter, allow the herbs to crisp up and drizzle over hot pie. Dust with cinnamon sugar if you like.
