Vegan Pasties?

Anybody ever make vegan pasties? I know they're mostly a Northern Michigan thing, but I hear they eat them in parts of Australia and England, too. And maybe northern Wisconsin... So I'm hoping someone's heard of them and made them, too!

Anyway, I'd love a tried and true recipe. I've found very little in the way of vegan versions, and they all seem a bit plain. I'd really like something hearty and flavorful. Ideas?

pumpkin ideas?

Hi guys,

I'm new to this community, and new to veganism (my official date will be Sept 1 -woot!) so I have more than my share of questions!

I would like to know if anyone has used pumpkin in any recipes that are vegan and easy. I love pumpkin pie - but now that eggs and evap milk are out - I need a new twist! Even just using the pumpkin as sort of a custard type dessert would work.

Thanks in advance!

Parkin was something that was something that always turned up at cake stalls when I was younger in Yorkshire and I haven't had it for ages. Looking for recipies I've turned up a page that has several vegan alternatives to try - I haven't had a go at any of them, but I thought I'd share.

Parkin is a very dense, dark gingerbread It's one of those dishes that have to mature: leave it at least a couple of days between cooking and eating.
