While many vegan savory tart recipes call for pre-made pie crust, I opted to make my savory shortcrust pastry from scratch and I recommend you try it too! The savory pastry comes together within minutes and is just perfect. Rich yet tender, and it holds up well, too.

The shortcrust pastry is made with all purpose  flour, almond flour, and flax eggs Herbs are added for extra flavor. The filling is savory and packed with flavor from sautéed mushrooms,  onions, and spinach.

I like white beans as the base of the filling. You can also use a mix of chickpeas and tofu. The tart is savory and hearty. Add some raisins or cranberries to make it festive. Add more veggies for a hearty weekend brunch.

To get that perfect caramelized browned top, we brush the tart with a mix of vegan Worcestershire sauce and oil and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 30 to 40 minutes. Don’t have Worcestershire sauce? Use some molasses +soy sauce.

  • Grease a 9 inch tart pan. press this dough down in the tart pan evenly. Keep pressing to the edges so that you have tall edges on the side. Prick  some holes in the crust

  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit( 180 degrees Celsius) for 11-12 minutes.

  • Then add the breadcrumbs as needed, 1-2 tablespoons at a time. The mixture should be lightly moist . It should be able to spread well on the tart.

  • Transfer this mix to the baked crust and even it out really well. Top it with some tomato slices or onion slices.

  • In a bowl, mix the worcestershire sauce and oil and brush all over the tart and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180c)for 30 to 40 minutes. Then let it cool for another 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Notes

Nutfree: use a regular pie crust which is flour and oil or vegan butter.
Gluten-free: use a Glutenfree crust of choice or use oat flour instead of all purpose in the crust. Use oat flour instead of breadcrumbs in the filling.
Soyfree: Use a mix of coconut amino a molasses and garlic powder as a substitute for vegan Worcestershire sauce
Oil-free: use broth to sauté 
You can also bake this without the crust. You can make this into small individual loaf sizes or burger patty sizes and bake them. Increase the glaze to cover the tops so that the tops don’t dry out.
You can also make them into muffin tin similarly and add the glaze accordingly.
