Plum & Port Tart

Plum & Port Whole Wheat Tart

I think one of the basics you need up your kitchen sleeves is a good tart dough.  If you have a savoury one and a sweet one, you’re good to go.  Well, when I was thinking about making my first dinner as part of Vegan MoFo, I knew I needed a vegan sweet tart dough, […]
