Introduction

This pie recipe is a savory delight. It’s packed full of flavor and will make you feel like you’ve just eaten at an elegant restaurant.

Vegen pie with spinach and olives

  • 1 pre made pie crust
  • 8 ounces firm tofu
  • 3/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 cup green or black olives
  • 2 cups spinach chopped

1 pre made pie crust

To prepare the filling, mix all ingredients together.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch pie pan and line with pre-made pie crust (I use Pillsbury’s refrigerated pie crusts) or make your own by following this recipe for homemade pumpkin pie dough. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F or until filling is bubbly and lightly browned on top. Serve warm or cold!

8 ounces firm tofu, cut into tiny cubes — note: put tofu in food processor and pulse until they are tiny crumbs

To cut tofu into tiny cubes, put it in a food processor and pulse until they are crumbly. You can also use a knife to slice the tofu into small squares and then run them through the grinder until they’re tiny bits.

The reason you should use a food processor or knife is that if you try to grind up large pieces of tofu by hand, they will fall apart and be super messy—and also not that great of a texture for pie!

3/4 cup vegan mayonnaise

You can use regular mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise.

Vegan mayonnaise is made from soybeans, which are high in protein and omega 3 fats (source). It also has no cholesterol.

1 onion, chopped

  • Choose a yellow onion for a milder flavor.
  • A sweet onion will add more sweetness to the pie and is best used when entertaining guests.
  • A red onion has a stronger flavor than the white or green varieties, but still retains its beautiful color when cooked.
  • If you want to add some color to your dish, try using purple onions! They have a distinct taste and smell that might surprise you if you’re not expecting it!

2 cups spinach chopped (about 3 oz)

Spinach is a good source of iron and vitamins A, C, and K. It’s also high in fiber—a great thing for your digestive system!

Spinach contains lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids that promote eye health by preventing age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

1/2 cup green or black olives, chopped
