buy direct from: [USA] [UK]
I was just looking at Vegan Vittles by Joanne Stepaniak and this is the recipe I found there:
have ready:

  • 1 recipe tofu whipped topping (to follow)
  • 1 fully baked pie crust
lemon filling:
  • 2 C water
  • 1 C unbleached cane sugar (Sucanat)
  • 3/4 C silken tofu (1/2 10.5 oz pkg)
  • 6 Tbls cornstarch
  • 1 Tbls canola oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C lemon juice
  • 2 tsp finely ground lemon zest
Place water, tofu, sugar, cornstarch, oil and salt in a blender.
Process until smooth.
Pour into a 2 qt sauce pan over medium heat.
Bring to a boil, stirring constanly with a wire whisk.
After the mixture thickens reduce heat to low and continue cooking and stirring for 1 minute longer.
Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and zest.
Pour hot filling into pie crust.

Cover the top of the pie with waxed paper to prevent a skin from forming.
Chill the pie for 8 hours or overnight.

Just before serving, remove the waxed paper.
Spread the top with tofu whipped topping.

You can substitute lime for lemon.

  • 2 Tbls pure maple syrup
