Vegan Coconut-Lime Tarts with Mango Slices

Being a busy New York chef, unfortunately, means I rarely get to make it home for Mother’s Day (it tends to be a busy day in the restaurant industry; everyone wants to take mom out for that special meal). That’s why my mom and I have recently developed a cool Mother’s Day ritual: we prepare a dish together on Zoom! This year, we’ll be making vegan coconut-lime tarts with mango slices, and neither of us could be more excited. And since I’m all about sharing the love, I have included the recipe below. These would make a great treat for mom, though I wouldn’t hold it against you if they never made it out of your kitchen ;).
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Servings 8

For the Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut

  • Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  • Pour the coconut-lime filling into the cooled tart crusts.
  • Place the tarts in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours or until firm.
