  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

Shiitake Mushroom Streusel
  • 5 oz. shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
  • 1/4 cup white wine or water
  • 1/4 cup “bacon” bits, optional (I use Wayfare Foods’ Pig Out Whole Grain Bacony Bits)

How to Prepare Savory Pumpkin Pie with Shiitake Mushroom Streusel [Vegan]

Make the filling
  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a 9″ pie pan with the whole wheat crust and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, thoroughly combine the pumpkin puree and the silken tofu. I processed the tofu in a blender prior to adding it to the pumpkin puree. Set aside.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a splash of vegetable broth, Bragg Liquid Aminos or water to the pan. Saute the celery and garlic until soft and then stir in the poultry seasoning, thyme, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes and remove pan from the heat. Stir the celery mixture along with 1/3 cup of the vegan gruyere into the pumpkin mixture. Set aside.
Make the mushroom streusel
  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a splash of vegetable broth or water.
  2. Add the sliced mushrooms and saute until tender.
  3. Add the wine and cook until has just about evaporated.
  4. Now stir in the “bacon” bits, panko, maple syrup and Liquid Smoke or paprika and ground pepper.
  5. Stir and let the mixture dry out a bit. The topping will brown up and crisp in the oven, so no need to let it completely dry out in the pan.
  6. Remove from heat, stir in the remaining 1/3 cup vegan gruyere and set aside.
Assemble the pie
  1. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the prepared pie shell and smooth out the top.
  2. Crumble the mushroom topping over the filling and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the crust is baked through and the mushroom topping is crisp and browned. Let the pie rest for about 15 minutes before slicing and serving. Also tasty served at room temperature.
