There's no reason to add anything containing gluten or additives into a pumpkin pie and this simple gluten-free vegan recipe proves it. Made with nothing more than pumpkin, soy milk, the usual pumpkin pie spices, vanilla, and a little bit of cornstarch to help it set, this is a dessert that everyone can enjoy, no matter their dietary preferences.

When it comes to celebrating the holidays and eating the tasty, traditional comfort foods that come with them, having dietary restrictions doesn't mean you can't enjoy it. Just because you follow a vegan and/or gluten diet doesn't mean you can't enjoy the holidays. After all, the meal isn't just about turkey. With recipes like this, it's possible to have a vegetarian gluten-free Thanksgiving complete with all your favorite comfort foods.

  • Pumpkin pie spice can be purchased in the spice aisle of most grocery stores, but you can also make your own. To do so, simply combine 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon, 2 teaspoons ground ginger, 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice and 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves in a small bowl, jar or storage container and use as much as your favorite recipes call for.
  • Ready-made gluten-free pie crusts can be found in some grocery stores, but making your own is as easy as pie! Here's how: Just combine 1/2 cup shortening, 1 1/2 cups rice flour and 4 tablespoons cold water, roll into a ball, then roll out into thin, round crust and place in your pie pan, fluting the edges for presentation.
