Isn't it the season for pecan pie? I'm thinking it's time to share my recipe with you because I know you'll love it. For the pie crust, I found it at Costco. It's vegan and the brand is called "Pate 2000". If not, any pie crust will do.
- Pie crust
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 5 tbsp margarine or vegan butter
- 3 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 cup silky tofu (the secret ingredient)
- 2 cups pecans (1/2 of them chopped)
- Preheat oven to 350
- On medium heat, mix butter, sugar, maple syrup and cornstarch in a pan. Bring to a boil. Place on low heat and leave for 1-2 minutes. Then, add vanilla and salt. Mix and remove from heat. In a food processor, mix tofu until it becomes creamy and then add to hot mix until well blended together. Pour the contents into the pie crust and add pecans on top. Place in oven for 45 minutes.
