This healthy version of a tart is made with quinoa flakes and dates and topped with Indian mithai flavours such as saffron, cardamom and pistachios. The filling is made of thick Greek yogurt combined with strong flavours and topped with fresh mangoes and pistachio flakes. This dessert is a great hit with the elders and staunch Indian-food-believers (is that even a phrase?). The dates lend natural sweetness to the tart, and the nutty crunchy almonds lend the right amount of crunch.
This recipe is in collaboration with the wonderful boys at Organic Farmers Co. This Company works directly with small-scale farmers, helping them integrate Fair Trade & Organic practices in growing quinoa. Their aim is to grow organic products that are cultivated and processed in a more ecologically sustainable way, which helps both the farmers as well as the consumers wellbeing. Additionally their focus is also on the environment – using recycled paper and plastic for packaging, and efforts in minimising carbon footprint and towards a more sustainable planet. Basically, a product that’s good for you and your future generations!
