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 actually a question for danggirl, what did you put on top of your pie? I can't really tell in the picture.

Hi enthusiaticloud,

It's chopped walnuts with a cinnamon/sugar coating. Awesome!

I must be honest, I make this all the time, but I am lazy and found an organic pumpkin pie filling in a can at my HFS and I use that instead of messing with the spices myself....shame on me, but it turns out delish and super easy too. I use firm silken tofu and it gives a great texture if blended all together in a food processor.

Next time I'm going to leave out the optional spices because it's just a little too spicy... Oh and I just cook it on the second temperature for about 45-60 minutes.

Soyatoo! (as seen in Elise's perfectly pretty photo) is the only brand I'm aware of who make soy cream, and yes it's in a can! :D You should be able to find it at all good health stores but failing that, I think your best bet is online. happy days

thanks so much, i'll keep my eyes open for it!
our health food stores have been horrible about carrying anything vegan anymore, i am going to have to go to a bigger town in texas to find anything vegan!

this pie was delicious!  It took me a while to get the tofu all pureed and mixed into the pie filling.  It cracked, so it wasn't too pretty, but it did taste wonderful...now if I can only find some vegan whipped cream!  I found a recipe on here, but it did not tast too good...
I saw someone found a CAN of it, any suggestions?

Jopas3,

I know my pumpkin pies (even when not vegan) would crack on top if my heat was a bit too high, or I cooked it too long...

I've always had pretty s****y ovens, so could've been either problem!  :)

Good luck, and I agree, the pie tastes great! 
Mmm...haven't made one in a while, should make one on my day off this week...!

thanks for answer! i enjoy this pie a  lot, i must say i prefer this to the clasical ones, right now im having a slice of it, is so bad is so crack in the top but the taste like i say is very good.  i will try to control the temps. like you suggest. thanks again for answer,
jopas3

Mine cracked too, but it still tasted wonderful!
