A simple and delicious dessert that is perfect for autumn occasions!

Ah, pumpkin pie - an autumn classic, a Thanksgiving staple.

Here is a simple and easy vegan version that will bring a smile to your face!

This recipe yields two pies.

Did I mention that it's easy to make?

Instructions for Making the Pumpkin Pie

One great thing about this recipe is that it uses only 5 ingredients, all of which you can have on-hand in your pantry.

Thoroughly whizz around all of the ingredients -- except the pie crusts! -- in a food processor.

Pour the ingredients into the pie crusts and bake for about an hour.

That's it! Easy and delicious, as promised!

Cook Time

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 75-85 minutes

Serves: 16 (makes 2 pies)


  • 1 16 -oz can of pumpkin (it's okay to use a 15-oz can)
  • 2 12 -oz tetra-pak silken tofu
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 prepared pie crusts


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Combine pumpkin, tofu, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in a food processor. Process until smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour filling into prepared pie crusts.
  4. Bake at 375 F for 60-70 minutes. When it's done, an inserted toothpick will come out almost clean. The texture will be firm with some cracks along the top.
  5. Cool and serve.
  6. Yields 2 pies.

Pour the filling into the pie crusts

Put the pie in the oven and bake for 60-70 minutes at 375F

Yummy pumpkin pie, fresh from the oven!

The pie will have cracks along the surface when it's done.

Allow the pie to cool down. It'll look better as it has time to settle.

      @anonymous: Yes, you do need to carefully read all labels. I had thought that the UK was ahead of the US in terms of having vegan options -- bummer!

      In the UK, most ready pastry cases contain animal fat. My daughter is vegan. She's fine where she lives, but when she visits me here in the wilds of Wales it can be difficult; practically nothing ready-made is suitable for vegans.

      I've got two packs of soft tofu in my fridge and a pumpkin on my table -- never thought of using them for the same thing! Definitely trying this, thanks!

      Great! Vegan Pumpkin Pie! Just what I needed to make this Thanksgiving a happier one for me. I will be celebrating with my vegan brother-in-law, sister, and vegetarian sister-in-law. After being the lone vegetarian (now vegan) in my family for many years, I feel so happy to have others joining in with food sanity.
