Vegan and gluten-free pumpkin pie with yogurt
Now that winter is approaching, the desire for Christmas cookies comes back. The smell of cinnamon is already mentally in the air. Inspired by the autumnal impressions, today I would like to introduce you to a newly created recipe from me, layered yoghurt cake with spicy pumpkin.
Anyone who knows me knows that I like to use vegan yogurt in my kitchen. For example, I make hearty dips or quiches out of natural yogurts, and the sweet varieties are used to make desserts such as cheesecake or vegan fruit panna cotta.
Soy yogurt with a green footprint
With every purchase you can make a difference, even when buying vegan yogurts. Meanwhile, there are many companies that make soy yogurt. But where does the soya come from? Many huge corporations source soy from South America, whose cultivation is often in great criticism. Unfortunately, the origin on their packaging is often unrecognizable. Soya can also grow sustainably in Europe and thus be better controlled and take shorter delivery routes. For this vegan cake, for example, I used “Sojade”, a French family business that grows its own soybeans, hemp seeds and oats. When buying soy products such as yogurts and milk, it pays to look more closely at the packaging and consciously opt for a more sustainable product. That’s why I want to support Sojade and have teamed up with this small family business to introduce you to this creamy and autumnal yogurt pumpkin pie recipe.
