So yesterday I saw a carton of Silk Nog (yes I know WhiteWave owns silk) and I bought it, needless to say it tasted almost exactly as I remember Egg nog too. After I had some more today a thought occured in my head is possible for me recapture the other non vegan memories of the end of the year holidays?, most important is possible to make a vegan version of my favorite pie, Pumpkin pie? So long story short do you guys/gals have or know of a recipe for a vegan pumpkin pie, and if you do, not sound demanding or anything but if the recipe calls for a "vegan Pie Crust" could please post any brand you know or used, since I really have not even the faintest idea of any. Thanks.

I plan on trying to make a pumpkin pie this year. I don't have a recipe for one, I just plan on substituting the real eggs for ener-g, and whatever other subsitutions I have to make to vegan products.

Vegan Pumpkin Pie

1 lb silken firm tofu
16 oz pumpkin
3/4 c sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt
1/2 t ginger
1/4 t cloves
1 t vanilla
ener g egg replacer equal to one egg
1 unbaked pie crust (I recommend Hot Water Pie crust from HIAV)

preheat oven to 375* F

add remaining ingredients, except pie crust, and blend well

I used this recipe last year. It's very good. I made the pie crust from The Joy of Cooking.

You can go to many recipe sites and search for "vegan" and then whatever you are looking for "pumpkin pie" I just tried this site I have saved to favorites and 41 came up:

http://www.food.com/

Thanks for the above suggestions. I'm going to look into those. You can also use the recipe on the Libby pumpkin can for pie. Omit the milk/egg and substitute about 10 to 12 ounces of pureed tofu. The trick is not to use too much tofu. But there are many recipes out there.

I'm with you on pumpkin pie, it's a favorite. And no fear, you can have all your favorite foods, but vegan!

There is a big veg recipe site out there I thought I had saved to favorites but can't find it in my bookmarks.

A year ago I made a raw vegan pumkin pie and the crust was some soaked almonds and dates put in a blender or food processor. I don't remember any measurements but the crust was very good, what's not to like about almonds and dates.
The pie itself had a squashy taste that was just fair. Maybe it needed more sweet in it or something, I didn't have a pumpkin so I used something like butternut squash.
Here's a link for a photo of it although I'll try and post a picture in this reply, I'm new here so I'm not sure what works.
Have some nice holidays, Gilhttp://www.surrealcity.com/images/rawveganpie.jpg

I just made a pumpkin pie last night... it was soooo good!!
I found the recipe here: http://www.food.com/recipe/vegan-pumpkin-pie-68432
I added a dash of pumpkin pie spice to the recipe too. I highly recommend blending the silken tofu in a blender/food processor, as it give it a nice, silky and fluffy texture.

I have blended tofu for pumpkin pie but it is a pain. If you can you may want to get a small food processor or a blender with a food processor attachment. That's what I bought two years ago and it's still in the box! But it would make the tofu blending much much easier.
