For the last couple of weeks the yellow-fleshed peaches have been sweet and delicious, melting in the mouth in a taste explosion. For my friend Jennifer’s birthday celebration last weekend I made this peach tart, so simple, made in a matter of minutes and chilled for a couple of hours before we fell upon it. I thought it was huge but it was all eaten in less time than it took to prepare.




  • 2 cup almonds, walnuts and/or sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1-2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 3 cups roughly chopped peaches
  • 1 tablespoon icing mixture
  • 3 sliced peaches    


  • Soften dates by heating with water in a small saucepan, add more water if necessary
  • Put nuts or seeds into food processor and blend until they break up to resemble breadcrumbs
  • Add softened dates to the nuts and process until the mixture forms a spreadable dough, adding a little water if necessary to keep it moving
  • Press the mixture into the base and sides of a 20cm pizza tray and chill while preparing topping:
  • Roughly chop 3 cups peaches and blend with the icing mixture
  • Spread the mixture over the prepared base
  • Thinly slice the remaining peaches and arrange over the top of the tart
  • Chill then serve
