Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Tofu Pumpkin Pie


1 can (16 ounces) pureed pumpkin

3/4 cup sugar or sucanat (or 1/2 cup maple syrup)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1 teaspoon ground allspice, optional

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, optional

2-3 tablespoons cornstarch to firm up the pie filling

1 package (10-12 ounces) silken/soft tofu

1 9-in unbaked vegan pie shell


Preheat oven to 425 F. Blend the pumpkin and sugar. Add salt, spices, cornstarch and tofu, mix thoroughly. Pour mixture into pie shell and bake for 15 minutes. Lower heat to 350 F 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 non dairy topping and it will fool any pumpkin pie lover.

Serves: 8

Preparation time: about 1 hour + chilling time
