Vegan and Gluten-Free Sea Buckthorn Berries Tart

 

Recently I have discovered the sea buckthorn berries, I didn’t know they’ve existed! I found it in a local deli and decided to explore it in my kitchen.

Apparently, they are also known as “Oblipcha” and “Hippophae” which is used in cosmetics, mainly in shampoos. But it is also a superfood packed with various benefits.

The filling– we will make a jam out of these berries. My mother makes jams out of all kinds of frozen fruits. Once I saw her making one and thought it would be amazing in desserts, not only by the tea. And that’s how the idea of this tart was born.

How to make jam from frozen fruit? Since frozen fruits such as blueberries, berries, and raspberries stir a lot of water in the cooking process, I’m boiling it with sugar several times to steam the liquids. Of course, you can use any other frozen fruits. I haven’t tried with natural ones though. Also, note that these blueberries contain little seeds but they are edible as in Passion fruit

Why have I decided to make a vegan tart?

First of all, I love any combination of desserts with fruits. Second, I am not vegan but have been trying lately to reduce the use of eggs, dairy and meat. My daughter has celiac and our home is gluten-free. It’s not always simple but I realized that we can cook and bake anything within our boundaries.
