Savory Pesto Mushroom Tart

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Savory tarts exist, and if you’re not eating them, you are missing out! Take this Savory Pesto Mushroom Tart, for example. It boasts fiber-fueled ingredients like almond flour, chia seeds, mushrooms, and spinach. It’s super flavorful with comforting aromas of egg and cheese. And here’s the kicker: it’s completely vegan! The recipe calls for plant-based ingredients like Just Egg, vegan butter, and Violife vegan parmesan cheese. So you can enjoy it without having to feel icky!
