I use "silken", which is a smoother softer tofu that is good for sauces and desserts. You can also use soft tofu, but you have to process in the blender a little longer.

I just found this recipe online. I haven't tried it yet, but thought I'd share. I'll take a look at all the ones and try the one that looks easiest!

BRYANNA'S VEGAN PUMPKIN PIE

I don't like pumpkin pie made with tofu-no one ever suspects this one doesn't have eggs. One caution-MAKE THIS THE DAY BEFORE SERVING. It's needs a day to set really well, I find. This is a spicy filling.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Have ready, one 9" unbaked pastry crust

Blend in blender:
2 c. solid-pack canned pumpkin (if you use home-cooked pumpkin, drain it for
several hours hanging in a cloth bag, so it's thick like canned pumpkin)
1 c. non-dairy milk (preferably a rich soymilk)
3/4 c. brown sugar or Sucanat
1/4 c. cornstarch
1 T. molasses or blackstrap molasses
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. EACH ground ginger, nutmeg and salt
1/4 tsp. ground allspice or cloves

Pour the filling into the pastry and bake 60 minutes, covering the edges with foil if they begin to brown too quickly. Cool on a rack, then refrigerate overnight before serving.

Yee-haw! :D I have been wanting to try a new pumpkin pie recipe without tofu, since we added soy to our list of allergies. I will give this a try. I will need to use rice milk, but I may condense it a bit on the stove top first to see if I can make it a bit richer. Thanks for sharing!!! Now I just have to find a good crust recipe to go with! LOL.

mharasym,
I made pumpkin pie using your recipe this weekend. It was delicious and set perfectly. I think it tasted better than my old recipe that had eggs in it.
My only issue was with my pastry. I tried using my old recipe with an egg replacer option. Although my pastry was flaky and tasted great it would roll out but not lift off the counter. I ended up just using my fingers to push it into the pan.

I see that Saskmommyof3 has a pastry recipe posted. I'll try that one next time :D

If you are interested in both vegan and dairy free, I would suggest you search google for "vegan pumpkin pie" as vegan recipes contain neither of the two.

As I made pumpkin pie today I thought of our thanksgiving 2 1/2 years ago and what a panic I was in looking for a great recipe. This one for egg free pumpkin pie mharasym posted ages ago tastes great and sets very well, just be sure to give it time to cool, even over night in the fridge is best.

I now use the Pilsbury pie crusts when making a full pie but today I used Tenderflake tart shells instead of a large pie shell. More convenient to serve and freeze. :lol: ....but we are no longer avoiding egg and I know the tart shells have egg...not sure about the Pilsbury pie crusts.


Egg Free Pumpkin Pie Filling

3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 Cup corn starch
1 can (15 oz.) canned pumpkin (not pie filling)
1 can (12 fl. oz.) Evaporated Milk (Carnation)

MIX sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves and cornstarch in small bowl. In a larger bowl mix pumpkin and dry ingredients. Gradually stir in evaporated milk.

POUR into pie shell.

BAKE in preheated 425° F oven for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350° F; bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve immediately or refrigerate.

Pilsbury pie crusts do not contain egg. We use these and we are avoiding milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts and most legumes (but not soy).

Since the Pilsbury crusts came out that is my new standard crust too! Yummy! Just can't always find them in stock and haven't tried freezing it. Next time I see them (especially on sale :)) I think I'll stock up! It's disappointing when you're trying to plan a dinner and have to go to several stores to find what you need !

I used your recipe for the pumpkin pie for the first time. It is definitely the keeper for my box.

Can't wait to try these recipes for the weekend. It's my turn to bring the pumpkin pie. My daughter is allergic to milk and eggs and it's important to me to make desserts that she can eat (even though I'm not sure if she'll like pumpkin pie anyway! :)

I created my own recipe that uses 350g silken extra firm tofu, 398 ml tinned pumpkin, some spices (per your own tastes), 50 ml cornstarch, and 125 ml maple syrup. Blend it all up in a blender until smooth, pour it into the crust, and bake at 200C for 60 minutes. Let cool completely before serving. Mmmm....
