Moyin-Moyin, Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie

Has anyone come up with a good recipe for Moyin-Moyin? I thought that I could try making it for Thanksgiving since it's supposed to taste like turkey and stuffing. I found one recipe here that calls for some dried shrimp powder. I'd guess there is vegan shrimp flavoring or a replacement for that, though. I'm just not sure how to find a replacement for it.


I also want to try a recipe for apple butter pumpkin pie. The recipe calls for 3 eggs and I figured I would replace it with about half a brick of silken tofu to make sure the pie is firm. Pumpkin pie is basically a custard, after all, and silken tofu is custardy. I don't want to add too much tofu, though, because I don't want it to make the pie 'bland.' And I figured I'd try coconut milk in the recipe instead of soy milk. I think it'd make it tasty. Coconut milk is generally more delicious than soy milk, anyway.

Here is the recipe I found:

Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie

1 cup apple butter
1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
3 eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
Sweetened whipped cream, for garnish (optional)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Combine apple butter, pumpkin, sugar, salt and spices in a bowl. Stir in eggs. Gradually add milk and mix well. Pour into pie shell. Bake for about 40 minutes or until set.
