A Vegan and Gluten-Free Halloween and Winter Holidays Recipe
Puttering around in the “Raw Fusion Kitchen” the other day, I made this pumpkin custard pie for company. I had purchased a can of organic pumpkin puree and was looking for a way to use it in a recipe. Naturally you can use fresh pumpkin to make this a completely raw dish, but considering my sketchy knife skills, carving or peeling pumpkins is not my forte, so I was happy to have this alternative. Raw Fusion is a practical approach to integrating more raw and living foods into your lifestyle.
For the crust you can substitute with just about any nuts or seeds that you have on hand. The pecans blended beautifully with the taste of pumpkin. I had extra custard and extra crust and had some sprinkled over a dish of the pudding the next day. Also found that the custard (and even the leftover pumpkin puree) was very popular with our three dogs. Pumpkin is loaded with fiber, potassium, zinc and anti-oxidant-rich beta-carotene. They are great for humans and their furry friends! My husband has never been a big fan of pumpkin pies but claimed that this was the best pumpkin-based dessert he had ever tasted.
