Pumpkin Pie

I was hesitant to post this because I was afraid of letting the secret out.  You see, I’ve fed this to so many people over the past few years, even the type of folks that would never willingly try tofu, and everyone loves it.  Even my dad, who normally doesn’t like pumpkin pie.  Ahem.  But it totally contains tofu and you’d never know, like, at all.  It is truly a winner and without a doubt, the best pumpkin pie, in taste and texture, of any I’ve ever had.  Pinky swear.

Pumpkin Pie

16 oz pureed pumpkin (not canned pie filling, but just plain pumpkin)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 10 oz package silken tofu (regular silken, not low fat)
1 unbaked pie shell, store bought or homemade

Preheat oven to 425°F.  In a food processor or high-powered blender, combine the pumpkin and sugar.  Add salt, spices, cornstarch and tofu, blend thoroughly.  Pour mixture into pie shell and bake for 15 minutes.  Lower heat to 350°F and bake for another 60 minutes.  Let it cool a bit (on a window sill if you’re feeling old fashioned!) before serving.

  1. Totally trying this! I made my omni parents a tofu pumpkin pie one year for Thanksgiving and they clamor for it now; they ask me to make the tofu one. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  2. This truly looks like the perfect pumpkin pie! Simple, but so yummy! ❤ and no fancy ingredients, like vegan cream cheese (which I don't have!)… I'll make this for sure!!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing! I have tried so many vegan versions over the years with only medium results. This pie was delicious, and is definitely my new pumpkin pie recipe 🙂
