Welcome to basically the only real pie recipe on Jessica in the Kitchen! After making this vegan pumpkin pie, friends, I am HOOKED on pie. I always thought making pies were hard, but after making this super simple vegan pumpkin pie, I’ve learnt that it really isn’t! Speaking of which, one bite and you’ll be hooked too. This pie is the perfect pie for Thanksgiving, that is a fact. The Mr., who grew up eating pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, verified that 100% for me.

The three slices I had also verified this fact. Oops.

I’ll admit: I did a lot of research on vegan pumpkin pie and was determined to make one without tofu. There’s nothing wrong with tofu, and while I’m adventurous, I just kind of wanted something super simple.

In walks with pie. It’s made with coconut milk, lots of real pumpkin puree, maple syrup, cane sugar, spices, and cornstarch. Like, that’s it! Reading this, I just realised just how beautifully simple with pie is, actually.

Speaking of the cornstarch, despite the bad rap it gets, it’s not actually bad for you. It’s made from corn, and high in carbs. That’s really about it! It’s the perfect thickener and you probably already have it in your pantry. I use organic cornstarch. Best part, it’s already gluten free!

This vegan pumpkin pie baked so beautifully. Like, I was so impressed that I almost literally gave myself a pat on the back. My cool factor is very low right now, so I only mentally did that. It came out as thick as regular pumpkin pie, which was the most important part for me.

In terms of taste, WOW. I actually had to give away this pie the same day I made it. Like, I would have been out of control otherwise. It tastes absolutely amazing!! The maple syrup and pumpkin puree flavours blended SO well, and the spices really shone through. Also, the coconut milk added a beautiful silkiness to the pie.

PIE TIPS

Okay, now some tips for this pie. For best results, I recommend making it just like I have. Substitutions can be extremely tempting, but this is fool-proof and already tested so many times that you don’t need to. The only substitutions I’ll “allow” would be using agave nectar instead of maple syrup, and coconut sugar for the cane sugar. I made this using both and loved them both in this.

One last note. Apparently I have a deep dish pie dish, so you may have some extra batter if you don’t. DO NOT (*screams*) fill the pie dish to the top of the dish since it puffs up while baking and will overflow (horrors). Fill it up to a bit before the crust ends and you can just freeze the extra, or more mini pies out of it. Then eat those mini pies immediately.

I also highly recommend making this, cooling it completely, and then refrigerating overnight. That way the flavours are absolutely outstanding. I even made my batter ahead of time (about an hour) and let it sit for the flavours to blend. This isn’t necessary, but if you have the extra time, it makes the pie even better!

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Q: Can I freeze this vegan pumpkin pie?
A: YES! You can freeze this for up to 4 days and it’ll still taste exactly the same. Or, you can freeze it for up to a month and it’ll taste very similar, although not as fresh at just baked. Wrap the pie in saran wrap, then in foil, and then place in a freezer safe zipped plastic bag. This ensures that smells and freezer burn will not affect your pie. When thawing, place in the fridge to thaw. Do not thaw on the counter as this will cause your crust to get soggy. If you have raw fish in your freezer, remove this first since this will be the first smell to seep into your pie.

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup (8.11 oz/230g) coconut milk from the can, the fat creamy white portion

Gluten Free Vegan Pie Crust Recipe , or store-bought pie crust

  • 1 Gluten Free Vegan Pie Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Pre-bake pie crust for 10 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add all the pie ingredients.

  5. You can leave this to set for an hour covered with a kitchen towel first to allow ingredients to completely blend together, or bake immediately. To me, it tastes even better when ingredients are left to sit a bit.
  6. Pour the batter into the pie crust.
  7. Bake for 60 minutes in the oven on the lower shelf or highest shelf depending on your oven (furthest away from heat).
  8. Remove from oven and let set and cool completely.

Recipe Notes

  1. This pumpkin pie is vegan and gluten free.
  2. I recommend making this recipe exactly as made. If you want to, you can substitute the maple syrup for agave nectar however.
  3. To test if your pie is finished baking, stick a toothpick into the corner of the pie. It should be solid. Try not to touch your pie - it'll leave some imperfections. When your pie comes out, it may be two different colours. This is from the spices in the pie. As it cools and settles, it'll change to one solid colour. You could spruce this pie up even more by adding a few cookie cutter leaves on top with the extra pie dough.
  4. HOW TO STORE You can store this baked pumpkin pie in the fridge wrapped with saran wrap or foil for up to 5 days.
    You can freeze this for up to 4 weeks. It will taste the same after a week of freezing, and only slightly different after that. Wrap the pie in saran wrap, then in foil, and then place in a freezer safe zipped plastic bag. This ensures that smells and freezer burn will not affect your pie. When thawing, place in the fridge to thaw. Do not thaw on the counter as this will cause your crust to get soggy. If you have raw fish in your freezer, remove this first since this will be the first smell to seep into your pie.

    Did you mean 4 weeks? months? WHy would freezing keep it good for a shorter period than refrigerating?

  4. One, this pie sounds delicious. And two – these photos are SO pretty!!

    Hi Jessica your recipes sound great, but how do I get them

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Beverly, If you’re on mobile just press “Read More” it’s right there! Otherwise just scroll down the page, and you’ll see the big recipe heading. 🙂 Thanks for your kind comments!

  6. This pie is gorgeous!! I have nothing against tofu either, but it doesn’t belong in pie. This looks similar to the recipe I make every year except I haven’t tried one with maple syrup. Can’t wait to give this version a try! PS: Love the video!

    • Jessica says:

      Haha love that we are totally on the same page!! Thanks so much Megan!! 🙂 The maple syrup seemed to go really well with the pumpkin 🙂

  7. Heather says:

    I’m going to try this recipe. Sounds great. For the coconut milk…are you using it from a can or just the carton? I saw many recipes require the fat creamy part of the canned coconut milk…does yours? Thanks!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Heather,

      Mine is from the can! Yes, aim for the fat creamy part. I’m going to go and highlight that in the recipe, thanks! I hope you enjoy!

      • Rebecca says:

        Hi Jessica, im excieted to try this recipe but I need clarification on the coconut milk. Is it just the coconut fat only that is 1 c. Or is it the fat and milk combined as in full fat coconut milk? I dont want to ruin this lol. Thanks for your help.

        • Jessica says:

          Hey Rebecca!

          I really hope you enjoy!! So it’s 1 cup of the thick fatty part!! Hope that helps!
