DIRECTIONS

  • Soak the pitted dates for the filling in warm water for 10 minutes and then drain.
  • Place the nuts in a food processor and grind until they’re a coarse meal. Add the dates (for the crust) and process until thoroughly combined. Press the mixture into a non-stick or very lightly oiled pie plate or spring form pan.
  • Arrange 4 cups of the sliced strawberries on top of the crust and set aside.
  • In a food processor or blender, combine the remaining 1 cup of strawberries with the 5 soaked dates and lemon juice. Puree until smooth. Pour the sauce mixture over strawberries.
  • Arrange the chocolate chunks on the top of the sauce (optional), and refrigerate the pie for 1 hour before serving. This will help the pie set and will be perfect for slicing.
