Pecan Pie ~ a Raw and Vegan Dessert Recipe


serves 2 ~ $1.45 per serving
 
 
 

  • 1/4 cup walnuts ($.50)
  • 1/2 cup raisins ($.50)
  • 6 dates, soaked ($1.20)
  • 1/4 cup pecans ($.70)
  • pinch salt

In a food processor with an "S" blade, process the walnuts and raisins until they are crumbly and stick together. Press into a small tart plate (the one I used is 5 inches diameter) and chill. Then in the food processor again, puree the dates with a tiny bit of the soak water until they form a gooey paste. Spread into the crust and top with pecans.

The amounts can be easily increased to make a larger pie for a more conventional sized dessert.
