Author Hannah Kaminsky writes, It's time to end the stereotype that merely making crust can bring a newcomer to their knees, placing pies on an unattainable pedestal that scares away those who simply hunger for a slice of comfort. Bring pie back to the table where it belongs, accessible to anyone with the desire to throw down a bit of flour and watch it transform by way of some ancient alchemy into something delicious in the oven. Featuring more than one hundred simple but scrumptious recipes, Easy as Vegan Pie offers alternatives to America's favorite dessert, rmally heavily laden with butter, eggs, and other animal products. The recipes in this book take some unexpected twists, offering vegan bakers a whole new pie experience. The gorgeous photography will lure bakers to try chocolate chipotle sweet potato pie, skinny mint tart, caramel macadamia crumb pie, and pomegranate pecan pie. Savory treats are well represented as well, with Thanksgiving quiche, primavera pot pies, and wasabi pea pie, among others. Kaminsky offers an unprecedented treat for vegan bakers, providing a unique and inspiring mix of culinary adventure and downhome comfort food.
