I want to be able to share recipes that I've tried but I don't want to duplicate them here if I found them online as that seems like it is cheating. (and possibly contrary to copyright laws)
I decided that I will link to the recipe but not post it here. I will still talk about it, what I liked, what I didn't, etc and what I may had done that altered from the original recipe.
This week was Thanksgiving and I made a vegan pumpkin pie to take to the family meal. I looked online for one that sounded reasonable (easy and didn't contain ingredients I don't usually have or that are difficult to find) and tasty. I chose this one:
Easy Vegan Pumpkin Pie from It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken
I really enjoyed this pie and will make it again. Additionally, meat-eaters in my family also enjoyed the pie so win-win! (or not if you want it all to yourself)
I also like that I could just dump all the ingredients into my blender, mix and pour into the pie crust. You can't get any easier. I like easy.
I used some of the pumpkin from the volunteer pumpkins that came up in our garden this year so I didn't have to buy any. You can use canned pumpkin but I really prefer fresh, myself.
The pie crust I used was my mother's oil pastry crust - modified to be vegan. I will post this recipe:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
5 TBSP milk (I used unsweetened, unflavored almond milk instead of dairy milk and it worked up just fine.)
Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Set aside. Mix oil and milk in a small bowl. Add liquid to the flour mixture and stir.
Makes 1 2-crust pie* (roll out between wax paper) or two 1-crust pies.
*I use a full recipe for a deep dish pie plate.
