VEGAN GLUTEN-FREE PUMPKIN PIE

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked Gluten-Free Vegan Pie Crust (oil-free) Or your favorite pie crust recipe
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats Use certified GF oats if needed; can also sub 3 Tbsp GF flour or almond flour
  • 3 to 4 Tbsp almond or cashew butter, smooth Omit or sub seed butter or additional oats for nut-free option
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk such as almond, flax, rice or oat
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp corn starch or 2 1/2 Tbsp arrowroot
  • 15 ounces pumpkin puree (pureed, cooked pumpkin with nothing added) Sub sweet potato if you like.
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon plus extra for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prebake the pie crust for about 10 minutes, or follow package directions if using a store-bought crust. 
  • Combine all filling ingredients in a blender (oats, nut/seed butter, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, arrowroot or corn starch, pumpkin, and spices). Begin by blending on low, gradually increasing to high speed. The mixuture will be fairly thick. 
  • Once the filling is smooth and creamy, pour it into the prebaked pie crust. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until the center looks just set. *Depending on the crust you’re using, you may need to cover the edges with foil or a pie crust shield after 25 – 30 minutes to prevent it from getting too brown. If using my gluten-free crust recipe, the crust should be okay uncovered the whole time. 
  • Let the pie cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate at least 3 to 4 hours before serving. See Notes for serving suggestions.

This book thinks your an Artist

“This Book Thinks You re an Artist is one of the rare books on the market to combine art history with practical activities on the page. It asks the reader to imagine their eccentric-artist alter-ego before working through six key topics: painting, sculpture, illustration, decorative art, photography and contemporary art. Each spread centres on a different technique for producing a piece of art, and relates the activity back to a famous artist or movement in a light-hearted and playful tone. Activities include making a Bruegel circus, playing a Surrealist game, selling a scribble for a million pounds and painting your face like a Russian Futurist. A section of paper-based crafts at the end of the book includes a kit to build a camera obscura.”
