Vegan milk pie

Today someone very special to me tried to motivate me to start blogging again. Not sure how and why, but I promised I would start tonight. So here is one of my favorite pie recipes along with a photo of princess Ifi. The crust is perfect for any creamy pie filling and the filling can be also used to make a vegan galaktobureko.Milkpie 

for the crust

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup vegan margarine
1/4 cup ice water
2 TB sugar
pinch of salt
1 TB apple cider vinegar

Sift together the flour, sugar and salt. Cut the margarine in small pieces and add it to the flour mixture until you form a crumbly dough. Mix the water with the apple cider vinegar and slowly drizzle it over the flour. Mix the dough with your hands until it forms a soft ball. Add more water if needed. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour. Sprinkle your working surface or a piece of parchment paper with flour and roll out the crust. Transfer the dough crust into a pie dish and crimp the edges as desired.

for the filling

4 cups of vanilla soy milk
1 cup fine semolina
1/3 cup of vegan margarine
1 small ripe banana, mashed
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/3 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350F/180C. On stovetop bring milk almost to a boil in a saucepan, and then add the margarine, banana, sugar, cinnamon and semolina making sure to stir continuously over the heat until a thick cream is formed. Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for 45 minutes until the top has browned. Let it cool, serve and enjoy!

 

Vegan chocolate brownies

If you love chocolate you will for sure love these vegan chocolate brownies. If you add the optional chocolate chips you will get more of a fudge brownie. Instead of walnuts you can use almonds or cashews. They will still taste decilious even if you make them nut free.
