Ingredients

  • 1.5kg pumpkin (1 large carving pumpkin or three tins of pumpkin puree)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter (we use Vitalite)
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 3 tbsp cornflour
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • A pinch of ground cloves
  • 750g pack of short crust pastry

Instructions

  1. Get the pastry out of the fridge - it's will be easier to work with at room temperature.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 6/200c.
  3. Peel the pumpkin and chop into two inch chunks.
  4. Put on a baking tray and roast for 45 minutes (or until soft).
  5. Blend the baked pumpkin up into a puree.
  6. Turn the oven down to gas mark 5/190c.
  7. Roll out the pastry and sit it in the pie dish (26cm diameter dish) - create a crimp around the edges, but leave enough pastry over the edges, to stop it from shrivelling up too much.
  8. In a big bowl, mix together the pumpkin puree, coconut cream, coconut sugar, vegan butter, vanilla extract and all the spices.
  9. Mix together the maple syrup and the cornflour until all the cornflour absorbs into the maple and forms a thick creamy paste.
  10. Add the maple cornflour mixture to the pumpkin puree and stir until combined.
  11. Pour the pumpkin mix into the pastry in the pie dish.
  12. Bake for 45 minutes - check after 30 minutes, if the edges are browning, cover the edges with tinfoil to stop it burning.
  13. Let the pumpkin pie cool on a wire rack, then put in the fridge overnight (8-12 hours) for it to set. This is a really important step, otherwise it will be too soft to serve!
  14. Once you've let the pie set in the fridge serve with oat or coconut cream and enjoy.
