We're so excited to share this Berry Tart recipe with you because we've always known how well fruits and veggies go together. But most of the time, desserts such as tarts do not include vegetables, let alone Microgreens. Now is the chance for you to try the unique colors and flavor stylings of our BrightFresh® Micro Rainbow Mix. We curate over half a dozen herbs and greens into this mix to bring you a cacaphone of flavors and colors fit for many recipes, including desserts!
Summer is the best time of year to make a berry tart because seasonality is in your favor. Many different types of berries are blooming, which is key to this recipe. If you can, but organic whenever possible, as they are proven to have less pesticide exposure during their grow cycle. This is something we care deeply about! If you're lucky enough to live in a coastal region, like Washington or Oregon, you might be lucky enough to pick your own berries. In some cities, they grow wild on the side of the road! For the rest of us, a favorite grocery store is the ticket. Either way, take a moment to gather your ingredients!
BrightFresh™ Rainbow Mix
Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
Small Frozen Tart Crust
Put whole blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and sliced strawberries into a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier and granulated sugar, stirring to coat every berry.
In a separate bowl, add berries and 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier and mash mixture.
Combine mashed mixture with whole berry mixture.
Place in the refrigerator for 45 minutes to an hour to let berries macerate.
Mix every 20 minutes or so and add more sugar. You’ll know when they are ready when a thick syrup begins to form.
While waiting, combine mascarpone with Grand Marnier and Sugar and set in refrigerator.
When the berries are almost done, crack an egg and separate the yoke and the whites.
Brush the edges of the crust with the egg yoke. (This will give the edges a nice golden brown color when baked).
Bake tart crust for 10-12 minutes with a temperature of 450.
When crust is done, let cool for 15 minutes.
While waiting, combine mascarpone mixture with berry mixture.
When crust is room temperature, remove it from its outer baking shell.
Then plate crust and fill the center with the mascarpone and berry mixture.
Add fresh berries to plate, surrounding tart.
Garnish tart with fresh berries and Rainbow Mix Microgreens.
