Pumpkin Pie

Its that time of year! Fall brings with it the notion of pumpkin pie. Though I have never had much of a sweet tooth or been a big fan of pumpkin pie my husband and kids love it.  And, I will admit, at least on Thanksgiving, I like a small slice of pumpkin pie.  Let's face it, it  is practically required!


I searched the web and reviewed lots of pumpkin pie recipes and below is what I finally settled on.  And, the votes are in... success!  My husband and kids each had a piece tonight and all said it was very good.  I had a tiny bit of the filling and I agree it was good. Really good.  It tastes like the classic version I remember from Thanksgivings past. This vegan version of the fall classic will be a crowd pleaser or a terrific end to a cozy family dinner.

Pumpkin Pie.

Unbaked pie crust (I used the same one I did for my Righteous Tomato Pie)
1 can pureed pumpkin
1 cup unsweetened non dairy milk (I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut)
3/4 cup raw turbinado sugar
3 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground allspice
Vegan whipped topping and powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place pie crust in an 8 inch pie pan. Combine pumpkin, non dairy milk, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, ginger, salt and allspice in a powerful blender or food processor until smooth. Pour mixture into pie shell and bake for 60- 70 minutes.  Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack until completely cooled.  Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least four hours (overnight is better) before serving..  Garnish with vegan whipped topping and powdered sugar.

  2. It comes in a can (like Reddi Whip). The brand is Soyatoo. Just make sure you read the directions before trying to dispense it as it is pretty easy to accidentally let the gas out of the can rendering it useless :) They make both a soy and a rice whip.

  3. That looks amazing! I'm going to get my hands on a carton of Soyatoo or Healthy Top and go to town on this pie!
