Thankfulness: Impossible Pumpkin Pie

I am relatively sure that no one thought I would blog two days in a row.  I am sure I thought I wouldn't do it two days in a row.

Welcome to a parallel universe.

A parallel universe made of pumpkin in which pumpkin is valued more highly than gold.

Remember Little B's pie pumpkin I baked? Well, I was lucky enough to snatch one, too, so there was another round of pumpkiny goodness going down at our house.  Ever since the first go-round, I heard more requests for a pumpkin pie than anything.  But with those sketchy eggs, which I have discovered are nearly impossible to replace when the recipe calls for 2 or more, I wasn't sure what to do.

Now I do, thanks to Susan Voisin over at The Fat Free Vegan Kitchen
Today I am thankful for her and for this...

Impossible Vegan Pumpkin Pie


1 1/2 cups soymilk
1 tbsp. Ener-G egg replacer
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups pureed or mashed cooked pumpkin
1/2 cup rice flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. ginger powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a 9-inch deep dish pie pan with cooking spray.A deep dish is recommended because this pie will rise a lot during cooking but will fall back down as it cools.
  2. Put the first five ingredients in the blender, and blend well. Add the pumpkin, and puree. Add the remaining ingredients and blend on high for 2 minutes, stopping to scrape the sides a couple of times to make sure everything is thoroughly blended. Pour into a pie pan and bake for about 60 minutes. The top and edges should be brown, but the edges should not be over-done. (Since this is a custardy pie, using the standard toothpick or knife test does not work; it will remain somewhat moist in the center, but it shouldn’t be uncooked.)
  3. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the counter. For best results, refrigerate until chilled before eating.

I can describe this pie for you in 3 words: breakfast, lunch, or dinner.


Wait...does that count as four words? I think I'll go ponder that over the last slice of pie.

One more time for good measure.
