Thanksgiving is just a few short weeks away and I’ve been brainstorming great recipes that would fit perfectly onto a table filled with delicious food.
This year, however, I plan of creating a ton of recipes that are vegan since there is a new wave of popularity towards vegan dishes, especially for the Holidays.
Whether you are a full-time vegan eater or plant-based eater or you are looking for a few healthy dishes to mix things up a bit, I’ll ensure that my recipes offer a load of flavor, per usual.
If you’ve been an avid reader of Orchids + Sweet Tea, then you know that I’m more of a Sweet Potato Pie fan as opposed to Pumpkin Pie. Granted, both pies are great, but sweet potato is more of my thing. Haha.
What about you? Sweet Potato Pie or Pumpkin Pie?
I don’t know what it is about sweet potato, but it’s just SO GOOD! Oh my.
Maybe it’s a Southern thing. I don’t know. But hey. I made a nice Vegan Pumpkin Pie that offers an orange-infused crust—-a definite winner.
And if you’re into Pecan Pie, I’ve dabbled in the making of it as well and it’s a classic vegan version. Of course, if you’re not into a pie filled with a pecan filling, then these Delicious Pecan Pie Cheesecake Bites are the way to go! They are an awesome rendition of traditional Southern pecan pie except for the velvety texture of cheesecake.
A Gluten-Free version can be made.
The crust is super ‘buttery’ and flaky!
Easy to make.
Made entirely in a blender.
So smooth and velvety.
Not too sweet, but just enough sweetness!
Minimal ingredients required.
The newest obsession and oh SO GOOD!
Besides the fact that sweet potatoes taste so good, they are also very healthy for you.
They actually contain more fiber than regular potatoes! Who knew? Plus, they are good sources of magnesium, which is what helps aid them in being a great facilitator in digestion.
Since they are rich in beta-carotone (a major antioxidant), they are awesome at defending your body from a wide variety of issues. In addition, they contain other great antioxidants which include: Vitamin C and B-complex, iron, and phosphorous.
Yes, that’s right! Sweet Potatoes are great at soothing the stomach and intestines. The previous listed vitamins that help to boost your immune system also are great at curing stomach ulcers. Plus, the roughage in sweet potatoes help to combat constipation and acid formation, which both help to reduce the chances of ulcers.

Now, let’s take a bite into this recipe, shall we?
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
For the Crust:
In a measuring cup, add the cold water and apple cider vinegar along with an ice cube and set aside.
In a large bowl, add the all-purpose flour, pastry flour, sea salt, pinch of cinnamon, and organic pure cane sugar, whisking them all together.
Add the cubed vegan butter sticks (or regular vegan butter) and using a pastry blender, blend butter into dry ingredients until the mixture becomes “peas-like” and crumbly.
Pour the cold apple cider vinegar-water mixture (slowly + without the ice) and stir (working it together with one hand) until the dry ingredients are moistened. **NOTE: If the ingredients feels a little too dry, add 1 Tbsp of cold water at a time, until it’s moistened BUT not too wet!**
Once you’re able to form it into a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour (minimum), up to 1 and a half hours or of course overnight.
In the meantime, make the Pie Filling.
For the Filling:
In a high-powered blender, add the sweet potato, coconut cream, maple syrup, vanilla, cornstarch, sea salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, and ground cloves and blend on medium-low until smooth and creamy, about 2-3 minutes.
Remove dough ball from the refrigerator and place it onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out dough ball using a rolling pin (not making it too thin), about 1/2-inch thick and gently placing it in your pie crust baking pan; working it around evenly. Be sure to do any folding or tucking of any excess pie crust.
Pour pie filling mixture over crust and lightly brush the top of pie crust with melted vegan butter. Bake for 60-65 minutes, until crust becomes golden brown and the center of the filling is only ‘slightly jiggly’. **NOTE: If the crust begins to get too dark quickly, cover around the pie’s crust with foil paper, leaving the middle opened and exposed.**
Once done, remove from the the oven and let cool completely, about 30-45 minutes.
Add to refrigerator for the pie to ‘set’ for 2-3 hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, slice your pie and serve with a few scoops of vegan ice cream or Coco Whip!, if desired.
