No Need for Crust

I had a typical day of “Sammie” eats.  Lots of veggies, fruit, nut/seed butter – you know the drill.  

Here was my lunch – oh yeah, there was a piece of almond cheese in there as well.




And some leftover spaghetti squash.




My very circular themed dinner – maybe I should have served it on a square plate?

This would be the ever so popular (at least at my dinner table), Turk’y Burger with my favorite crimson dipper.  As well as an English muffin topped with almond butter, sunflower seed butter and jelly. 





The meal needed some greenery so I had a bowl of lettuce and broccoli drizzled with Briannas dressing.




This afternoon I did a little baking and made an Impossible Vegan Pumpkin Pie.  Can you tell what is missing?




There isn’t a crust.  The “custardy” filling actually forms a crust during the baking processes – very cool! 

You are supposed to let the pie cool completely before cutting but I am impatient and had to dig in ASAP.  I needed some dessert after dinner and this baby was calling me.

In my typical style, I did make a few alterations to the original recipe. Instead of soy milk, I used almond milk.  And I used 1/4 cup agave nectar instead of 3/4 cup sugar.

It turned out pretty good – even Charlie thought it was tasty.  He does think that it needs to be sweeter so if you make it and want a sweeter version than up the agave or whatever you decide to use to sweeten your pie.

I am off to get some shut eye.  I am really hoping that my sweet tart does not wake me up in the middle of the night.  He is on a roll of harassing me 3 times a night – ugh, Mommy needs sleep too.  We are trying to keep him in his own bed but the little bugger just won’t give up.  He came into my room and asked to sleep next to me every hour on the hour from 2 am – 4 am.  I’m almost positive that he is lacking a good nights rest as well. 

I hope you have a good night.

I love crustless pies, and I would have dug in immediately as well. :)

I also love typical "Sammie" eats...especially when they include sunflower seed butter. I'm on a Sunbutter kick these days. Going to try making my own.

Hope you & D both got some sleep last night Sammie!
