Create this tart without Irish Moss Paste, however, the filling will be much looser. Try adding a couple of tablespoons of ground chia seeds to the mix as a thickener, and give it more body OR - take a leap and try something new - Irish Moss Paste! It's really simple to make and adds body to mousse, pudding, "cheese" cakes, and salad dressings, etc.
