A twist on the traditional pumpkin pie. Make it lighter by replacing half of the sugar with Splenda(<sup>&reg;</sup>) artificial sweetener.

This is so bland. It needs way more spices. I even added pumpkin pie spice. This was a waste. Sorry. This is my first bad review. Read More

This was excellent! Used "soft" silken tofu and a low fat granola pie crust and reduced salt to 1/4 tsp but left everything else the same. Why would you want the eggs and dairy in a pumpkin pie when it can taste this good! Great recipe! Read More

Updated review: On the first day this was edible but not that great. The second day however this pie tasted very good! Definitely make this a day ahead of time to let the flavor improve!! I do not have a blender so I used a hand mixer which I do NOT recommend if you're sharing this with others simply because of the lack of visual appeal (it looked completely disgusting with beige chunks). I'm not vegan and I do think regular pumpkin pie is better. I still might make this again though since it's so healthy and simple. Read More

Very very good! I made this for the first time this year for Thanksgiving (made the day before). It was very creamy & no one knew it was made with tofu! (except for my mother - I made the recipe for her) No one else questioned that it tasted "different". However the reason I gave it 4 stars & not 5 is because 1) both my mother & I thought it needed more of a real "pumpkin" flavor and 2)everyone noticed that the clove taste was a little strong. I think the next time I make it I'll use pumpkin pie spice instead and maybe a little extra pumpkin as well. Otherwise I would absolutely recommend it to serve to anyone who can't have dairy. I'll be making it again. Read More

This pumpkin pie is fantastic and easy to make. People don't know they are eating tofu. I give this recipe 5 stars!!!! Not only does it taste good but high in protein and fiber. Read More

love this stuff! I used graham cracker crust last time I made it and while that sounds different it still turned out great. I only used cinnamon as that was all I had and it still came out wonderful. If you are finding this bland you are not adding enough spice and sugar with the all important dash of salt. Also VERY important to use SOFT not firm tofu or it will have a weird texture along with a very good food processor. Read More
