Soy-Free Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Ingredients

1 pie crust
1 15-ounce can pumpkin, already cooked
1 ripe avocado
1/2 cup raw cashew nuts, soaked for at least 6 hours
1/4 cup cane sugar or sucanat, more or less to taste
1 handful vegan chocolate chips
1-2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Pre-soak raw cashew nuts for at least 6 hours, and drain.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit. In a food process with an S-shape slicer, pulse until very creamy the cashew nut, avocado, sugar, and vanilla extract.

Scoop out the creamy mixture into a large bowl, add pumpkin, and mix with a large spoon. Taste the mixture to see if it is sweet enough - add more sugar if desired. Add chocolate chips, and mix.

Pour mixture into a readymade pie crust. Place pie in oven and cook for 35 minutes. Enjoy warm or cold.

The pie is soft like a pumpkin pudding pie, and it's very delicious.

I made this pie for my friend who is a vegan but very intolerant to soy - whichis a problem because almost all vegan pumpkin pie recipes available use TOFU. I tried using avocado with cashew, and it came out totally delicious. It\'s soft like puddling. If you want to make it firm, add 2 teaspoons of arrowroot or some kind of thickener. ENJOY.
