pumpkin love part 2


So here's part 2 for you! (part 1 is here). This pumpkin pie should use up the leftover cup or so you've got of pumpkin puree if you made the pumpkin risotto.

The only other things you'll need are:
some vegan pastry (either store bought or made with this recipe clickclick)
1 box of firm silken tofu (around 350g)
1 cup of pumpkin puree
1 1/4 cups of light brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Mega easy this one. This amount makes enough for two small pie dishes or one 9 inch-ish sized one.

Put the tofu into a blender and process until it's smooth. Then add the cup of pumpkin and blend again. Tip into a bowl and it should look something like this:

Add the sugar and spices and stir together.

Pour the mix into your uncooked pastry shell and place onto a baking sheet. Bake at Gas mark 5/180C/350F for 30-40 minutes.

After 35 minutes or so, it should have browned on top but will still seem a bit sloppy in the middle. Leave it to cool in the fridge for a few hours and it'll solid up.

easiest, quickest, yummiest...autumnist?

can the tofu be extra firm or must it be soft? it goes in the blender either but does it make a difference? just curious! plus all i have is extra firm tofu :)

I don't think it would set nearly as well if you used soft tofu...good job you've got the firm stuff!
