Mini Pistachio Baklavas (Vegan)

Mini Baklava

This is one of those desserts…. one bite and addictive!

‘I don’t often eat Baklava, but when I do, I eat the whole tray…’

Here is an easy, peasy, lemon squeezy recipe for you to try out at home. It is such a beautiful taste and the smell of toasted pistachios is an added bonus. I used creamed honey from the farmers market as it is a little mellower, but any high quality honey will work.

This is a little healthier than your normal Baklava as it doesn’t have multiple layers of syrup. It is also easy to serve with cocktails as a canapé. I’d suggest adding a little rose water to some prosecco would be a good pairing, bringing out the fragrance and smells of a souk in both.

Ingredients

  • 15 mini tart shells
  • 3 tbsp. vegan butter
  • 1 cup raw unsalted pistachios
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • ½ tsp. cardamom
  • Pinch salt

Method

  • Bake the tart shells
  • Melt the butter in a medium pan, add pistachios and stir for c. 2 minutes until they start to have a nutty aroma
  • Add the honey, cardamom and salt
  • Take off the heat and mix
  • Use two spoons to scoop the filling into the shells
  • Cool before serving and make sure you don’t get any sugar on your skin as it will be super hot (I may be talking from experience…)
