Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato Tofu Tartlets

I had been thinking of turning my Butternut Squash Pie into tartlets, but then discovered a pack of silken tofu in fridge that needed to be consumed as soon as possible, so I made an adjustment and decided to try tofu tartlets instead.
Still, they had to include butternut squash and sweet potato, so I just mixed those goodies in and the recipe came out delicious.
I made the first batch using one tablespoon of psyllium husk, but they turned out too squashy, so I added another tablespoon to the second batch. It was a wise move as the texture was much firmer ? it?s still a bit soft, but not too much. So, just perfect!
My tartlets are ideal for breakfast, dessert or as a snack ? you choose! I?ve been having one as my afternoon snack before I go to get my kid from kindergarten. They fit perfectly as they have low glycemic load, yet they are very hearty and filling.

They would also be a great choice when having guests or on holiday table.
