I liked this pretty well. The recipe was easy to follow and had simple ingredients, which is always a plus. Tofu doesn't really substitute for dairy ingredients, if that is what you are looking for--BUT for my family this one is a big winner! Thank you smileyfroggy for putting this adaptation on the site.
I used the shelf-stable type of soft tofu and drained off what little liquid there was. The tofu puree was runny and the pie never set to a sliceable consistency. We could taste the tofu (which in my opinion has a slightly sour and/or bitter flavor on its own) and my pie-loving kids wouldn't eat it at all. Since the reviews have been so good, I might try it again with water packed, refrigerated tofu (maybe even firm tofu instead of soft) and perhaps using brown sugar to give it a little more depth of flavor.
Excellent. I have to echo what people have been saying about this recipe: my non-vegan friends loved it, and I myself was surprised by how good the texture was. I have baked vegan pumpkin pies before, and they often turn out tasty, but liquidy--even after chilling. This texture for this pie was just right, and I highly recommend it!
