Tofu Pumpkin Pie

What you need: 

1 (16-ounce) can pureed pumpkin
3/4 cup sugar or sucanat OR 1/2 cup maple syrup
1 (10- to 12-ounce) package silken soft tofu
2 to 3 tablespoons cornstarch (to firm up the pie filling)
1 teaspoon ground allspice (optional)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 (9-inch) unbaked vegan pie shell

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Blend the pumpkin and sugar. Thoroughly mix in tofu, cornstarch, and spices (allspice, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, and cloves).
3. Pour mixture into pie shell and bake for 15 minutes.
4. Lower heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for another 60 minutes. Chill and serve.
Don't use the low fat tofu, then the pie tastes like it was made with tofu. This pie is soooo yummy, it will fool almost anyone. I made it last Thanksgiving for my whole family, I am the only one, and everyone asked for seconds. They begged me to make another one for Christmas dinner. Top with nondairy topping and it will fool any pumpkin pie lover.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

this was the first time i made any sort of pie, ever, and it turned out great!
i used 1 15oz can of pureed pumpkin, trader joe's pumpkin pie spice mix, extra cinnamon, a graham cracker shell and ...non-silken extra firm tofu (because i was out of soft.) all mixed together in a blender.
what others have said is true! non-silken tofu makes the pie tofu-y so i added more sugar, which made me have to add more cinnamon, which in turn made me had to add more pumpkin pie mix.
it's been so long since i've had pumpkin pie that i wasn't sure how it was supposed to taste. but the batter tasted pretty good!
ooh, and i didn't have any corn starch so i used 2 tbspns of Ener-G Egg Replacer.
i let it settle over night...
and it was for a potluck on friday night...but...i was so scared it would be all mushy and taste as though you just poured a packet of stevia into your mouth....
so
i
cut
it
and am trying it right now.

omg it's so good! need to cut down on the sugar and use silken though. it's really filling and almost like pureed MEAT b/c of the firm tofu.

This was a weird pie for me...it wasn't bad, but it wasn't particularly tasty...just ok.  I think it was bland, needed more spice and salt, less tofu, more pumpkin, skip the cornstarch.  I did add molasses and maple syrup and skipped the regular sugar altogether...maybe part of the problem.  My health-conscious friends liked it and ate giant slices since it was dairy-egg-and-refined-sugar-free.  I ate a few slices because I couldn't decide if it was good or not.  (really...that's why!)  I give this one a 80% because it was pretty good for being so healthy.

This is the best pumpkin pie I've ever tasted! My non-vegan friends even like it. They ask me to bring it to every potluck.

My sister and I made this for our Canadian Thanksgiving this past weekend.  She's vegan and I'm vegetarian.  It was so good!  We used maple syrup and didn't have any allspice so we left that out, and it turned out great.  Tastes just like traditional pumpking pie.  She made a vegan pie crust from one of her vegan cookbooks.  We served it with non-dairy soy ice cream - pralines & cream flavour....mmm mmm good!  Great recipe! :)

ahh so delightful!  i followed the recipe verbatim, but next time i'll have to change the amount of spices because the taste of the cloves is a bit overwhelming, though this version is totally edible. i'm eating a piece right now! i haven't had pumpkin pie in so loonnngg! i'll definitely be making this recipe again, even my non-vegan parents enjoyed it!  ;D

this pie was really good.  I didnt have pumpkin and I couldnt find canned pumpkin so I baked and mashed 3 large sweet potatoes. and didnt add cornstarch.. it made 2 deep dish pies, I also used firm silken tofu. organic vegan brown sugar, maple syrup and some raw cane sugar. and a hodge podge of spices. my husband LOVED it, I was planning on giving the other pie to my sister, but my husband ate the whole thing. he is an uber carnivore. He also took it to work with the vegan bread I made so he could brag to his co-workers that I work full time as a nurse and bake pies and homemade bread.  ::)  So now I have to make a few more. Thanks
