Recipe - Vegan Pumpkin Pie
Start with your sweet pie pumpkin. Steam it, mash it, put aside.
Now the crust. Add 2 cups of pecans or walnuts along with 1 1/2 cups of pitted dates and 1/2 cup of coconut oil (I used the solidified kind and warmed it) to the cuisinart and blend until smooth. Form the crust in your pie pan. It feels like warmed play doh and is very easy to work with. Here's what the crust looks like.
Soak 1 1/2 cups of raw cashews in water for about an hour. Drain thoroughly and put in cuisinart along with 1 1/2 cups of the cooked pumpkin with 1/3 cup plus 2T of maple syrup (you can substitute agave if you like). Add a pinch of salt. Then blend until smooth, and add 1-2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. Blend some more and then pour it into the pie crust. Refrigerate overnight or for a few hours before serving. Yum!
