Pumpkin Pie with chocolate and walnuts

This is the recipe for the pie I made today. I used the basic vegan recipe, which is tofu, pumpkin, and spices, and messed around with it some. I think it turned out really good. I didn't use any sugar in the pie, but the blend with the chocolate makes up for it. It's a really subtle-tasting pie.

One bit of advice--the chocolate gets really hard in the refrigerator, so give it a few minutes to soften up before you try to cut it.

1 vegan pastry pie crust
1/2 bag vegan chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts

cover the bottom of the crust with chocolate and walnuts


1 can pumpkin
1 package firm silken tofu
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tbs coconut butter
cinnamon to taste
nutmeg to taste
all spice to taste

1 heaping tsp agar agar dissolved in 1/4 cup hot water (takes about 5 minutes on the stove). This is a gelling agent and helps the pie set.

Mix together. Filling will be lumpy. Pour it into a blender and process until it is smooth. Pie consistency. Pour over chocolate and walnuts into shell.

Oven: 350 F 50-60 min.

And no, I didn't eat all of that by myself. (Tempting as it was.) I packed up a good portion of it to give away tomorrow.
