Grain-free Strawberry Basil Goat Cheese Tart (w/ vegan option)

You guys know that it’s quite rare you’ll find a recipe on my site with dairy these days, after I cut dairy out of my diet two years ago – due to some digestive yuckiness. However, over the last 6 months or so, I have been enjoying, in moderation, small amounts of sheep milk and goat milk cheeses – as they always do OK for me and my sensitive gut. Both seem much easier on my little emo tummy so I have just been going with it and seeing how I react. I am all about listening to your own body, realizing we are all very different and that there is no single diet for everyone! I personally don’t believe in forcing labels and titles onto my diet (outside of the necessary gluten-free, one) and I find that when I eat intuitively and pay attention to my body’s cues, it really is easy to know what works for me and what doesn’t and this can change from day-to-day. Realizing all of this has been quite freeing, actually.

Grain-free Strawberry Basil Goat Cheese Tart (w/ vegan option)

This Grain-Free Strawberry Basil Goat Cheese Tart is very simple to make and it is obviously great as a dessert, but it would also be a wonderful addition to a fancy schmancy brunch menu. The tart crust is totally grain-free and so simple to make. After that, no more need for the oven and you can just throw this together and be ready to serve it up in no time. Oh, and I have to say – god bless the people of the internet that have the patience to arrange strawberry slices, one-by-one, in a perfectly symmetrical pattern across the top of a tart or cake. You know the ones. We all want to be them/secretly despise their incredible attention to detail. Well, if you couldn’t tell from the photos,that’s not me. I am a dump and serve kinda gal, it all tastes the same anyhow, right?

I personally love a slice of this tart with an extra drizzle of local raw honey over top and a glass of some bubbly Prosecco on the side. The flavors in this tart all just complement each other so well. The tartness from the goat cheese with the subtly sweet tartness of the fresh strawberries, all rounded out so perfectly with the sweet raw honey and finished off with the strong aromatics and the subtle earthy, peppery taste from the basil.

    this looks amazing. i’m sensitive to dairy but have found that some sheep and goat cheeses aren’t too bad. the tart crust looks easy and delicious – would you use it for a savory dish like quiche?

      Thanks Kristen!! Thank god for sheep and goat cheeses, they have made eating certain dishes, super fun again!! Funny you should ask about the crust, I am actually working on tweaking it for an upcoming savory tart recipe, later this month. Stay tuned 😉

    This looks so good! I’ve been waiting for this one since you gave us a peek of it the other day. 😀
    I have to be honest here, I love the look of yours, with the “dump & serve” method! I’m sorry but I am one of those meticulously-arranged-in-symmetrical-concentric-circles people, but it’s because I can’t help it!! Even when I try the dump & serve, I still have to go back and rearrange each one so that it’s perfectly evenly dispersed and appears the exact right amount of random…lol…my brain annoys me sometimes…hahaha! Looks super delicious no matter how you do it! 🙂

    I can’t even imagine what these flavors would taste like together but I do know that I want to try it. I’m slightly obsessed with goat cheese…

    can you make this with frozen strawberries?

    • tastyyummies says:

      Yeh, I suppose you could, but be sure to drain off a good amount of the liquid, once they thaw.
