Decadent Dairy-Free Pumpkin Pie

Decadent Dairy-Free Pumpkin Pie

One of my favorite treats is a rich, creamy pumpkin pie. I created this delicious and nutritious option to have all the taste of a traditional pumpkin pie, without all the nasty ingredients. Enjoy.

Crust:

2-1/2 cups spelt or whole wheat flour (or another whole grain flour)

cup white unbleached flour

cup cold-pressed walnut oil or extra virgin olive oil

cup of icy cold water

pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients together in a food processor until marbled-looking. Then, roll out into a thin layer and place in a pie plate. Using a fork, make small perforations in the bottom of the dough to allow air to escape while baking. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

Filling:

2 cups cooked pumpkin

1/3 cup honey

1/3 cup maple syrup

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/3 cup almond milk

teaspoon ginger

teaspoon cloves

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

1 Tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot

block of firm organic tofu

Mix all filling ingredients together in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Pour into the piecrust and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Let cool. Refrigerate.

Vladimir- the title is a bit tongue-in-cheek- "decadent " in this case meaning very yummy and seemingly luxurious! Even though it is actually very healthful.

Interesting recipe, but was this really necessary? "without all the nasty ingredients", definite turn off for people who aren't vegan, but might have wanted to try it.

Another substitute for milk which I found works really well in pies or puddings is organic coconut milk. The full fat version is very similar to evaporated milk but tastes much better in my opinion. There is also a low fat version of the canned coconut milk available for those watching their calories.

Thanks Michelle for the recipe. Sounds absolutely delicious.

Sounds lovely and I will definitely try it. But I'd like to point out that honey is not vegan. I'll try it with jaggery (a king of unrefined sugar) instead. Thanks for sharing!
