Allergy Free Recipe Collab: Chocolate Pumpkin Silk Tart

They said it couldn't be done. A dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free dessert that actually tastes good. But we did it, with a little help from our friends at Enjoy Life Foods, and a trusty bag of Toasted Quinoa Flakes

  6. Bake crust at 350 F for 20 minutes and then cool.
  7. To prepare filling: combine non-dairy milk, arrowroot starch, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and vanilla on stove and bring to boil.
  8. In a separate bowl, microwave Dark Chocolate Morsels for 3 minutes (or soften in a double boiler on top of the stovetop).  
  9. Stir until the chocolate is smooth and tempered.  
  10. Slowly incorporate chocolate into pumpkin mixture and whisk until smooth and silky.
  11. Pour chocolate-pumpkin filling onto the pre-baked pie crust and refrigerate for 2 hours.
