Raw Pumpkin Pie

82

Vegan Recipe:

 

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1 cup raw walnuts, unsoaked
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened dried coconut
  • 1/4 cup whole cane sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 4 pitted medjool dates

Filling:

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons agar flakes
  • 2 cups sliced carrots
  • 1/4 cup whole cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or dark agave syrup
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mashed avocado (1 avocado)

To make the crust, place the walnuts, coconut, sugar, and salt in a food processor until finely ground.  Add the raisins and dates and process until the mixture begins to stick together.  Don’t over-process.  Pour the crust crumbs into a 9-inch pie pan.  Use your hand to distribute the crust crumbs in the pie pan.  Gently push some of the crumbs up the sides of the pan to the rim in order to create a 1/4 inch thick, loosely packed wall.  Next, press the crust on the bottom of the pan down with your fingers and palm (be especially firm where the bottom of the pan joins the sides).  To finish, press with your thumb to consolidate the crust wall along the pan’s sides.
For the filling, place 3/4 cup of the water and all of the agar flakes in a small saucepan on the stove.  Let soak for 5 to 10 minutes.  Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes, whisking occasionally.  Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
Place the carrots, sugar, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, lemon juice, salt, and remaining 3/4 cup water in a blender and process until smooth.  Stop occasionally to scrape down the sides of the blender jar with a rubber spatula.  Add the avocado and the agar mixture and process until smooth.  Pout the mixture on to the crust, spreading it evenly with a small offset spatula.  Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
