One of the most delicious and simple recipes in American cuisine is the classic pumpkin pie.

 

It is usually prepared on Thanksgiving Day, which falls on the fourth Thursday of November, when the American people take the opportunity to spend time with family and friends to forgive and thank each other before beginning a new year. However, this pumpkin pie is already on the American tables for the most monstrous night of the year: Halloween!

 

As a typical autumn dessert, pumpkin pie goes very well with a spicy blend that enhances its taste and flavour. The most commonly used flavours to enrich the dessert are: nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon.

 

What better way to celebrate the beginning of autumn than with a recipe based on pumpkin, the legitimate plant symbol of this season?

 

We leave you to our vegan and gluten-free recipe. No butter or margarine!
