Did you know? Not only are pecans delicious, but they also pack in more than 19 vitamins and minerals.
Pecans contain essential vitamins like A, B, and E. If you also include the folic acid, calcium, potassium, and zinc contained in pecans, they really do deserve to be celebrated.
So why not try out this No-Bake Vegan Chocolate Pecan Torte? This rich and decadent torte is made with an Oreo cookie crust, chocolate ganache and pecan nut filling. Easy and insanely delicious!
For the Crust:
1/3 cup Vegan Butter
Chocolate Ganache Filling:
2 cups Vegan Chocolate (Chopped) or Vegan Chocolate Chips
1 and 1/4 cups Coconut Cream
1 and 1/2 cups Roasted Salted Pecans
Vegan Chocolate Shavings
Add the oreos to the food processor and process into fine crumbs. Then place the crumbs into a mixing bowl.
Melt the vegan butter and add to the bowl and mix in until all the crumbs are coated.
Spray a 9-inch round pie dish with non-stick spray and then pat down the oreo crust firmly working it a little up the sides of the dish. Place into the freezer to set while you prepare the filling.
Add the vegan chocolate pieces or chocolate chips to a bowl. Heat the coconut cream to a simmer (you can do this either in a saucepan on the stove or in the microwave, just keep a careful watch on it if you’re doing it in the microwave so it doesn’t boil, you just want it to reach a simmer) and then pour the hot coconut cream over the top of the chocolate making sure all the chocolate is covered. Let it sit for a minute for the chocolate to melt and then whisk it with a hand whisk until you have smooth chocolate sauce.
Add the pecan nuts and fold into the chocolate.
Pour the chocolate ganache filling out over the oreo crust and smooth down evenly. Place into the fridge for a few hours to set completely.
