For this recipe, pumpkin should be smashed, without moist at all. Avoid the canned smashed pumpkin due to the conservatives and prefer to make it by yourselves. Cut the pumpkin into pieces, boil them, and leave them for an hour to drain well after you have pressed them very well with a fork.

Sweat the smashed pumpkin slightly for a few minutes with coconut oil till there is no moist at all. Take it away from the fire, add the spices, the shredded nuts, the wheatmeal and the honey.

Fill the tart dough with the mixture.

Bake the tart for 30 minutes into the pre-heated oven at 175 degrees ot till a sinking knife comes out clean.

Tip: in the half baking time cover the tart with foil paper to avoid to get dark on the top.
