I know it’s almost summer and pumpkin pie is a great autumn dessert, but that doesn’t matter. You have to go to the store, now, and buy yourself some pumpkin to make this pie. This gluten free vegan pumpkin pie   could be the greatest pie I’ve ever made with a mellow sweet  flavor, and a creamy, dense texture. This recipe uses the less is more approach. There isn’t a large amount of spices, just a nice hint of lemon and a hint of cinnamon. It has a secret ingredient for a buttery creamy flavor, coconut cream. You know that ultimate pumpkin pie doesn’t come from canned puree, right? You need to make a puree from roasted pumpkin. It’s worth every extra minute it takes to make it. Making puree is not that hard.

Just quarter the pumpkin, scoop out the seeds, cut into cubes  and roast it for an hour, until the flesh is tender. Then add baked pumpkin into a food processor. Process until smooth and there you have it. The flavor will be richer and you can thank me later. :) With a piece of pie, off course. :)
