Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Blend the tofu in a blender until smooth, and then add the pumpkin in ¼ portions.  Take breaks while blending to scrape down the sides of the blender and make sure everything gets whipped together smoothly. 

  3. Transfer the pumpkin and tofu puree into a large mixing bowl and add sugar, salt and pumpkin spice.  Mix together with a large wooden spoon until blended. 

  4. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and bake 30-40 minutes until the crust is brown and crispy and the filling looks firm.  Allow to cool for 20-30 minutes before serving and enjoy with soy ice cream or light whipped cream!

Almost all traditional Thanksgiving desserts are vegetarian-friendly, so you won’t have to worry too much about adapting the recipes.  Enjoy a meat-free thanksgiving this year with any of these creative ideas and celebrate the season with a delicious meal!
