This week, David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl from Green Kitchen Stories are serving as Guest Editors at Food52. They're sharing a week's worth of recipes and giving away 3 copies of their book, Vegetarian Everyday.
Today: You don't need cheese -- or gluten -- to show off fennel's flavor in a beautiful tart.
Fennel is a beautiful vegetable, and this recipe is the perfect way to let it shine properly: the sweet coconut filling enhances its characteristic anise flavor. No cheese is needed here! The gluten-free crust is made with almond flour, has a sweet flavor, and just the right consistency.
