Raw Vegan Beetroot Tart

This vegan raw tart not only looks beautiful but tastes great too. The colour from the beetroot is a stand out and is complemented with the figs and cacao in the base. I used organic beetroot which has a natural sweet clean texture and can really be tasted when eating this Tart. I have had some lovely complements from those who have brought a slice at the organic markets, which is why it is becoming a regular feature. It is quite easy to make and contains necessary vitamins, fibre and superfoods to keep replenishing us in our busy daily lifestyle. It is also great because it can be portioned up and frozen and is then available when those cravings for something sweet hits you. This treat is also quite light to eat and only contains natural sweetness.
