What says American Autumn more than pumpkin pie? Ok, maybe apple pie, but that will be in a different post.
There are many excellent pumpkin pie recipes and here is my version.
1 cup pastry flour
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp tahini
pinch sea salt
combine flour, salt and baking powder. Add shortening and mix till small crumbs. Add enough water to form a dough. Wrap up and place in fridge for one hour.
Roll out dough and form into pie shell.
in a high speed blender, place the following:
2 cups roasted, pureed pumpkin
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup soy milk (unsweetened! only soybeans and water)
1/3 cup kudzu
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp vanilla extract
blend on medium speed for 1 minute, till very aerated. Pour into pie shell, and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Let set for a couple of hours before cutting.
