Should you use Cheese or tofu

You can use either vegan cashew cheese or silken tofu in this pie recipe…or any other type of vegan cheese you prefer. The cheese (or tofu) add a silky, creamy texture to the pie that compliments the crunchy almonds in the best way possible. 

Note: If you are vegetarian you can use vegetarian feta cheese or any other type of vegetarian cheese you prefer. 

What to do if you are allergic to nuts

If you are allergic to almonds, or simply don’t like them, you can leave them out of the pie and add roasted chickpeas instead. Roasted chickpeas adds a bit of the same crunch and also adds a little extra protein. 

If you are allergic to nuts you will also want to use silken tofu or another vegan cheese substitute instead of the cashew cheese.

Vegan pie dough

You can make your own vegan pie dough or buy a vegan ready to make pie dough at the grocery store. I like to make my own vegan pie dough when I have the time, but on a busy day I will just use vegan pie dough from the grocery store. 

Most doughs at the grocery store are made with oils, but be sure to read the ingredients list to make sure it’s vegan.
