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, normally
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 down-home
