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 and Coconut Tart from Food52

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.

Is this a dessert tart or more of a savory one

Brilliant. Thank you for developing and sharing this recipe. Quick question: When you say, "rice flour," does it matter whether it's brown rice flour or white rice flour? I'm going to have such fun with this one! Stay tuned . . . . ;o)

Hi AntoniaJames, we have used brown rice flour in this recipe, but white rice flour would work as well. Enjoy!
