Roasted squash and heirloom bean tart with pumpkin seed crust.

Although I like the look of the green-skinned kabocha squash in this tart, I found that the large wedges roasted up a little too dry. To create a moister texture, you could roast them separately and cover for the first half of the cooking time; or replace them with more of the red kuri or delicata squash if you prefer. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, allow plenty of time to cook the beans, as they are extra large. Makes 1 10-inch tart/serves 8

Directions

Make the crust: Oil a 10-inch tart pan with a removable bottom and set aside. Add oats, ½ cup of the pumpkin seeds and chickpea flour to a food processor and grind until fine. Transfer to a medium bowl. Place remaining pumpkin seeds in the food processor and pulse until crushed. Add them to the bowl along with rice flour, baking powder, oat flour and sea salt. Use a fork to stir mixture well, breaking up any lumps. Drizzle in olive oil and mix until evenly distributed. Add nut or soymilk and stir until mixture comes together. Dough should be moist and hold together easily but not stick to your hands. If it seems dry, add a little more milk; and if it seems wet, set it aside for 10 to 20 minutes. Press crust thinly and evenly into prepared tart pan and prick bottom with a fork several times. Bake 20 minutes or until almost cooked through, remove from oven and set aside. Make the filling: Drain and rinse beans. Place in a pressure cooker, cover with an inch of water and add kombu. Bring up to high pressure, reduce heat to low and cook for 30 minutes. Remove from heat, allow pressure to come down, remove lid, compost kombu, drain beans and set aside. Warm 1 tablespoon olive oil in a wide skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook 8 minutes or until beginning to brown. Stir in ½ a teaspoon sea salt, lower heat a little and continue cooking 10 to 15 minutes or until soft and caramelized. Stir in the regular balsamic vinegar and half of the cooked and drained beans. Use a potato masher to crush the beans and set aside. Place remaining beans in a food processor and add remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil, white balsamic and ½ a teaspoon salt and puree until smooth. Add to the caramelized onion mixture and stir well. Season to taste. Make the topping: Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a rimed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aide. Cut squash into 1 ¼ inch wedges and place on prepared tray, add 2 tablespoons olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper; toss to combine. Spread out in a single layer and roast 25 minutes or until browning on the bottom, turn wedges over and continue roasting for about 20 minutes more or until squash is browning and soft all the way through. Remove from oven and set aside. Lift off parchment paper and line tray with a fresh sheet. Add sage leaves and remaining olive oil and toss to combine. Roast for 7 minutes or until crisp, remove from oven and set aside. Assembling tart: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill pre-baked tart shell with white bean mixture. Arrange roasted squash wedges on top and bake for 20 minutes or until heated through. Remove from oven and allow to cool 10 to 15 minutes before removing sides of pan. Top with crispy sage leaves and serve.
