I have a confession guys: I’ve made pumpkin pie TWICE already this month. And you know what? I don’t even feel bad about it.
If there is one person to blame though, I can certainly point fingers at my son, who has been
pestering asking me since September to please please please make pumpkin pie mom. Thankfully, I finally caved- I mean, how many times can I say no to a 5-year-old AND pie in the same day? Especially when it takes only 10 minutes of my time and is vegan + gluten-free, there’s just no reason not to be granter of wishes.
Besides, when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner, I can barely make it to the dessert; I’m usually stuffed to the rafters and strung out on gravy. Even if I try to “shake my food down to my toes” (doesn’t everyone do that?), I can still only manage to moan-eat a sliver of pie.
All the more reason to just say “screw it” and make pie NOW.
However, if you like to “save” treats like this for special occasions, this pie is not only a classic but the easiest thing you can make for Thanksgiving dinner. With a no-bake filling and frozen pie shell (*gasp!*), you can have it done in no time, leaving you to tackle the rest of your holiday prep.
Because who has time to make a pumpkin pie from scratch these days?
Personally, I can live with myself and take a few shortcuts. If you want to be adventurous though and make your own pie crust, by all means, go for it! I’ve been making this easy filling for years, and used it with a variety of crusts, from raw to store-bought to homemade. It’s always delicious, no matter what you choose!
On a serious note, I’m so thankful for you dear reader. Here’s me sending you lots of gratitude for stopping by today and supporting something I’m passionate about. Things may slow down on the blog over the holidays (it’s that life thing you know), but rest assured, I’m looking forward to another year of sharing easy plant-based recipes (and some surprises too!). I’m super thankful that I’ve been able to devote as much time as I have towards “Bohemian”, so here’s raising my invisible glass to that:)
I hope you all have a beautiful holiday, filled with lots of love, family, and friends. You deserve it.
Just make sure you don’t model your dinner after the gang:
