But if you are pressed for time, it's okay to use canned. Pumpkin pie fans won't mind, although you won't make any converts.

Use your own pie crust recipe, buy a ready-made crust, or try our no-fail vegan pie crust. For two pumpkin pies, double the pie filling recipe.

This recipe makes one 9" vegan pumpkin pie. It's lovely by itself, and fabulous with coconut whipped cream or cashew cream (pictured).

Recipe Comments:

This recipe is amazing. Just made it for a group of non-vegan pumpkin pie lovers and many said it was the best pumpkin pie they had ever had. Creamy, subtly sweet and loaded with excellent pumpkin flavour. Served it with the coconut whipped cream which was also a big hit. Thank you! - Jessica L.
