Rhubarb Strawberry Tart

Paula Abdul was on to something when she sang Opposites Attract.  The way she moved in sync with MC Skat Kat was really remarkable. It takes true talent to have that level of chemistry with a cartoon cat (or an impressive animation team at Disney).  Where am I going with this you may ask? Nowhere. I just really like Paula Abdul.

But speaking of opposites that attract, I’ve always loved the way strawberries and rhubarb can blend together to make the most divine combination of sweet and sour.  Here’s my version of a paleo rhubarb strawberry tart.  This dessert might not win a Grammy, but it will sing to your summer taste buds.

Makes 4 tarts
8 dates (pitted)
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup pecan flour
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
6 stalks rhubarb
16 medium sized strawberries

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

To make the crust, put the almond flour, pecan flour and 4 dates in a blender. After a couple of minutes, the mixture should look like the texture of a graham cracker crust.  Take 4 tart pans (I use the 4 inch pans that have a removable bottom layer) and line each with the crust. It should be sticky enough to work with because of the dates in it and will mold to the tart pans easily.  Once you’ve molded the crust in each tart pan, set aside.

To make the filling, cut up your rhubarb in 2 inch pieces and place in food processor.  Add lemon juice and coconut oil and blend together on several pulses of your processor.  Make sure it is evenly mixed, but do not puree this. We’re making a tart here, not juice.  Then add slices of the strawberries and hand mix together.  Spoon each tart pan with the filling. Place in oven and bake for approximately 35 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
