We are therefore very pleased to repost our Vegan Key Lime Pie, desserts are the best reward.
Graham cracker crust:
1-1/4 Cups graham cracker crumbs
6 Tbls soft vegan soy spread
12 ounces firm tofu
1/3 C powdered sugar
1/4 C Key lime juice
zest of 1 large lime
4 ounces firm tofu
2 Tbls raw sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Crush the graham crackers in a bag until they are a course texture. In a bowl thoroughly combine cracker crumbs and soft soy spread. Line a 9" pie pan with the graham cracker mixture and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Puree 12 ounces of firm tofu in a food processor until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add the key lime juice and 1/3 C powdered sugar. Continue to blend until smooth and pour into chilled pie crust. Garnish with lime zest and refrigerate for 2 hours, overnight is better.
To make the Whipped Cream, puree 4 ounces of tofu. Add raw sugar, vanilla and continue to blend until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
