It’s Vegan MoFo III, day 4!
With Canadian Thanksgiving around the corner, I’ve been thinking a lot about holiday desserts. Truth be told, all this damp cold weather alone is enough to get me thinking about holiday desserts. And what better holiday dessert than pie, I ask? Especially this pie: Sweet Potato Pie.
Yes, this is another test recipe for Jae Steele’s new book: Many recipes have been tested and all of them fabulous. Consider it a Ripe From Around Here sneak peak.
Whereas Jae has posted quite a few of these new recipes on her blog, this one has not been released for public consumption. There are however many, many versions of Sweet Potato Pie out there online – look for one without dairy, eggs or animal fats for a vegan (and healthier!) version. Hey, here are two possibilities to get you started: this one and that one. If you don’t have soy sensitivities, I’d definitely go for one that uses silken tofu. Tofu adds excellent structure, protein, and great creaminess to pies like this. Choose an organic, non-GMO brand.
And let them eat pie this Thanksgiving.
