Quick Bite

Of pie. Who can say no to that?
The bubbles and the colour make it look a little bit like egg, but this is just tofu, sugar, passionfruit and agar.


This is a mix-n-match Urban Vegan pie. I used the cookie crust recipe from her newest book, Pies and Tarts with Heart. I'll review it properly in October, along with a giveaway! So check back for that. But, spoiler: I love it so far.

Yum strawberries and passionfruit mousse tart. 
I filled the crust with her Easy Passionfruit Mousse, from her first book, The Urban Vegan. Even though I used fresh, rather than frozen passionfruit, it was still rather easy. And holy crap it was good. The tartness of the passionfruit played against the sweet sugar, all offset by the occasional spicy twinge from the gingernut biscuits that made up the crust.

Light and fresh and a great dessert!

Is it just me or are the strawberries way better than average this year? I am just eating them with yogurt and tonight there will be shortcake too! Get them while they are cheap!

Ooh, yum! This sounds fantastic Theresa. I'm not sure I've seen a vegan pie quite like this before but anything with a mousse-like filling is going to win me over.

So excited about Dynise's pie book!! I haven't seen it yet, but I know it's gonna be amazing.

I am loving the mixed metaphor! What a great idea. Nummers. :) Wish we had more passionfruit here. I can only get the Goya frozen pulp--bc I don't feel like spending $12 a pound for "fresh" ones.

That looks amazing! The passionfruit and strawberries are making me miss summer. I'll have to live vicariously through this pie :)
