Vegan 'Cheese' and Onion Summer Greens Tart

This is such a lovely, savoury summer tart and a great way to eat your greens - even if you're not a huge fan of them! Nutritional yeast is the perfect vegan alternative to dairy cheese and works brilliantly in this dish. 

It's quick and easy to throw together and aside from the nutritional yeast which you'll need to buy online or in a health food store the other ingredients are available in pretty much any supermarket. 



150g ground almonds

100g oats (gluten free)

150ml coconut oil (melted)

4 heaped tbsp nutritional yeast

2 tsp baking powder


1 tsp dried thyme


150g cashews

4 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp coconut oil 

1 onion

50g kale

50g broccoli 

30g garden peas


Place the cashews in a nutribullet cup and cover with boiling water, soak for one hour

Mix all the base ingredients together and press firmly into a loose bottom flan tin

Pop in the oven for 15 minutes at 160C

Meanwhile add the nutritional yeast, vinegar and a pinch of salt to the soaked cashews and blitz to a smooth cream

Add coconut oil to a pan and saute the onions for 5 minutes until soft. Add the green veg and warm gently for a further 5 - 10 minutes until all the greens soften

Stir the creamy cashew sauce into the greens and pour the entire mixture over the flan base

Return to the oven for  8 - 10 minutes. Allow to cool. Then place in the fridge or somewhere cool to set

Serve with fresh salad leaves and a few drops of balsamic vinegar. You can serve this tart cold or re-warmed in the oven if you prefer

  • Hello Jasmin,

    I’m sorry to hear she’s allergic to almonds. I’d suggest a combination of other nuts … perhaps hazelnuts, brazil nuts and walnuts – ground to create a flour. Assuming she’s okay with those? Hanna x

    What could you use instead of almonds as my daughter is allergic to them?
