Black Bean & Tofu Tart With Cornmeal Crust

 Yield: 6 servings


1 c  Cornmeal
1 c  White flour
1/2 ts Salt
1/3 c  or so water or other liquid (adjust as needed)
4 tb Ice water

Contents of tart

1/2 lb Soft tofu, drained ( I used whatever I had and I always look for the
kind with the least amount of fat in it)
1/2 ts Cumin   (I am sure I used at least 1 t coz i love cumin)
1/4 ts Pepper
1/4 ts Cayenne
2 c  Black beans, cooked
2 tb Onion, minced
6 ea Garlic cloves, roasted
1/2 c  Corn kernels, cooked, for garnish, optional

  CRUST: In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, flour & salt.  Drizzle in
  water: stir or use fingers to mix until the mixture becomes crumbly.
  Sprinkle with water & mix again.  The mixture should form into a
  ball, add more water if necessary, but only a little at a time.  Wrap
  in a damp towel & refrigerate for 1 hour.

  FILLING: Mash tofu & stir in cumin, pepper & cayenne.  Mix in
  the beans, being careful not to break them, & onion.  Set aside.

  Preheat oven to 400F.  Place dough in a 9" pie plate & press down
  until it covers the plate.  Refrigerate 30 minutes.  Prick crust
  several times, cover with aluminum foil & weight it down.  Bake 20
  minutes, remove weights & foil & bake until the crust is dried out,
  about 5 minutes.

  Spread roasted garlic over the crust & spoon on the filling.  Return
  to oven until heated through, about 15 minutes.  Garnish with corn
  kernels if desired.
