Rhubarb Tart with Orange-vanilla custard (dairy free)
A modern, instant classic of Spring and Summer cooking, using the season's most colorful and trendy garden harvest.
Dairy free custards, yogurts, anything that is supposed to be set, are difficult to pull off. I'll be honest - this is by no means an authentic way of making custard as you would with egg and full fat milk, but just trust me and the science of corn starch on this one.
A lot of recipes will call for an overtly sweet custard, but I'm reigning that in, because I want the tart, almost sourness, of the rhubarb to shine alongside a slightly salty shortbread crust. If you apply balance to just about every dish that you make (desserts, and savory dishes both), you'll be able to taste more nuanced flavors from each element.
