"I just love pumpkin pie, and being vegan meant I had to forego my favorite at Thanksgiving and Christmas. So this year I was determined to find an acceptable pumpkin pie that isn't made with the usual eggs and milk. This recipe is an adaptation of the Whole Foods Market Pumpkin-Pecan Pie recipe from their website. As I prepared the ingredients, I kept thinking "this will never work", but it did work and it is perfect! I have made this twice as a "trial run" and it is indistinguishable from regular pie, so I plan to make it for Thanksgiving this year. I'm sure my omnivorous family will never know the difference :)"
