Vegan Chocolate Cream Pie

IMG_4552This was my offering for British Pie Week – a luxurious, silky chocolate and cream indulgence that was wolfed down in our household! You might think the silken tofu in the filling and the whipped soya cream on top would give an unmistakable soya tang to the whole pudding. Well, you’d be wrong – the results are creamy, rich and chocolatey without being ‘too much’ and are sure to please any palate. Go on, you know you want to!

Chocolate Cream Pie (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, sesame-free, vegetarian and vegan) N.B. contains soya

Welcome. I'm a Cordon Bleu trained chef and mother with a passion for cooking vegetarian food. All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations.

    1. It’s soo easy and totally delicious. What do you need to avoid? We could probably make some alterations – although the soya would be hard!

  1. The pie looks heavenly! Love all the whipped cream on top!… I’ve never tried the boxed Soyatoo. Do you find the texture light and airy like the canister type, or more dense like home-whipped, dairy, whipped cream?

  2. Now, this is a very winning vegan chocolate pie! I must make this tomorrow! It looks fabulous! I think this will be my birthday pie in April!! ooh yes! xxx

  3. Made the pie today after finding American substitutes for some of the ingredients. Husband really liked it! Can you share the calorie/energy count for a serving (1/8 th) size? Thanks for sharing your creativity.

    1. So pleased you tried it and enjoyed it. I’m afraid I have no idea about working out calorie content……if you find out do let me know as I’d be interested in the results πŸ™‚
