Vegan MoFo 20- 5 Nights a Week- Coconut Pie


This coconut pie recipe comes from ABC's Delicious- 5 Nights a Week. We've had this book for years and dip into it regularly, granted I never follow the recipes but it's served us well.
I've made the original recipe many times (in my pregan days) often for family gatherings because it's quite dense and travels well and it was always well received and enjoyed by all. This vegan version is just as yummy! the creamy coconut base is cut nicely by the citrus and when eaten with fresh fruit is just perfect. This is a really great alternative to pavlova in summer.

Citrus and Passion fruit Coconut Pie
Original Ingredients:
4 eggs
1 cup (225g) caster sugar
100g unsalted butter, softened
100g slivered almonds
1 cup desiccated coconut
2 tbsp lemon rind
2 tbsp orange rind
1/2 cup (125ml) lemon juice
1/2 cup (125ml) orange juice
1 cup (250ml) coconut milk
1/2 cup plain flour, sifted
lightly whipped cream and fresh passion fruit pulp to serve
Claire's Version:
4 eggs chia/flax eggs or other egg replacer

100g unsalted butter, softened 100ml coconut milk
100g slivered almonds
1 cup desiccated coconut
2 tbsp lemon rind
2 tbsp orange rind
1/2 cup (125ml) lemon juice
1/2 cup (125ml) orange juice
1 cup (250ml) coconut milk--> making 350ml total
1/2 cup plain flour, sifted (I used a self raising gluten free blend)
Optional
lightly whipped cream nut or soy 'cream'
Fresh passion fruit pulp to serve
  • Pre-heat oven to 180c (350 f)
  • Add almonds to the food processor and chop into small pieces
  • Add all other ingredients to food processor and combine well
  • Pour into 28 cm pie plate (I only had a 24 cm quiche one which worked well)
  • Bake for 1hr, until lightly browned
  • Set aside to cool, refrigerate for 1hr to chill (it will fall a bit)
  • Slice and serve with fresh passion fruit
  • Enjoy!
If you're not a fan of passion fruit this is absolutely delicious as is, the creamy coconut makes it lovely to eat as is... but doesn't it just look like a blank canvas ready to be covered with fruit? strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, mango anything would taste great!

Love and Smiles,
