Celebration Vegan Sweet Potato Pie


Sweet potatoes are sweeter than pumpkin and the flavor is considerably more complex. This allows sweet potato pie to beat the living daylights out of pumpkin pie if the two were to battle in a flavor war. This Celebration Vegan Sweet Potato Pie recipe is living proof, especially when it's enhanced with maple syrup, nutmeg cinnamon and ginger. Flaky Pie Crust is recommended for this pie.

9 inch pie crust (pre-baked if you're using a homemade crust)

1 cup mashed sweet potatoes (about 1 ½ potatoes)

6 oz firm tofu
¼ cup Vegan Butter or margarine
1 cup maple syrup
¼ cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoon nutmeg
