Vegan Pumpkin Pie Recipe

IMG_1067EDITEDweb

 

This is a recipe that I should have made up years ago. You guys have been asking at least 3 years for it, and I just never got around to making this part of my Christmas or Thanksgiving recipes. You are probably asking me why. Well, the truth is I don’t like pumpkin pie. I always thought it was a totally bizarre thing to eat. It’s a cold, wet, squash filled dessert, and as a kid I would just eat the whipped cream off the top and stare at the rest. It has taken me so long to make up a vegan pumpkin pie recipe because I have a hard time putting a recipe on my site that I wouldn’t eat myself. And since I do not enjoy pumpkin pie, this would have been one of those recipes.

I wanted to understand this dessert, why do we as a society go crazy over pumpkin pie or even pumpkin flavored items in general? Well, I believe it is not the pumpkin itself that we love, it’s the spices that we enjoy with our pumpkin. So I started experimenting; first using others recipes as a base, and then realizing what I enjoy and what I didn’t enjoy about pumpkin pie. Eventually, I managed to make a vegan pumpkin pie just in time for vegan thanksgiving that even I love. I hope you enjoy it.

Happy Thanksgiving!
