Pumpkin Tofu Pie

Here is a recipe I found on vegweb posted by “mary.” I have not tried it, but it got good reviews.

Pumpkin Pie (no Tofu)

I don’t like pumpkin pies with tofu for some reason, so I had to search for a good recipe without it. This one is great! I don’t remember where I found it, but I use it every year, and it is never turned down! I don’t like pie crust (I often just make the filling!), so I am sorry I cannot offer a good ff crust recipe. I have tried cutting out all of the sugar and using more maple syrup, which actually works fine, but I don’t remember the measurements I used…if you want a refined-sugar-free pumpkin pie, it can be done, though! Sorry I cannot be more exact. If I make it again this year, I’ll post the exact amounts to the list.

Cranberry Rice Pudding

Dried cranberries and a hint of maple syrup add festive flair to this hearty and warming holiday favorite.

Fresh Fruit Cobbler

Be sure to use sweet, ripe, seasonal fruit in this recipe. Peaches and nectarines are delicious. For a fresh strawberry pie, see hint below.

Creamy Dessert Puddings

This recipe was created by one of our cooking instructors at the McDougall Program, Alex Bury. I demonstrated this recipe during the VegSource conference during October 2005 and received so many requests for the recipe that I am including it in this month’s newsletter.

Pumpkin and Carob Layered Pudding

MARK’S NOTE: Replace carob with chocolate & grain coffee with instant coffee granules.

Carob Chip Cookies

Carob Chip Cookies comes from the “Recipes from the Weimar Kitchen” cookbook published in 1987. They are a health institute in Weimar, California and this cookbook is full of vegan-type recipes. My husband and I are trying to eat more vegan type recipes and I thought I’d try these just for fun. Was pleasantly surprised at how good they turned out. The recipe calls for walnuts, but I’m allergic to them, so used raw cashews instead and it turned out fine.

Poached Pear in Raspberry Sauce

I love this simple, yet excellent tasting first course, because it is simple to make, tastes wonderful and has great visual appeal, and can be made in 15 minutes!

Fudge Pudding with Strawberry-Kiwi Topping

Baking intensifies the texture of this dessert, and chilling overnight will optimize the flavors.

Apple Bake

Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the apples are soft and it’s all steamy & brown.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Young kids can help too! My kids like to make small sculptures (like worms, butterflies, etc.) that we can eat.
