What is Halloween without pumpkins? And I mean not just for decorating and making scary lanterns.

Pumpkins are one of the symbols of the abundant autumn – full of color and plenty of harvested veggies and fruits!

So, I thought I could share something delicious with pumpkins you may have never heard of – it is a sugar-free pumpkin pie recipe coming from my motherland – Bulgaria. Here we call it Tikvenik, which literally comes from the word for pumpkin (tikva).pumpkin pie recipe, healthy vegan recipes cookbook, vegan meals, vegan desserts, meatless recipes, vegan cookbook, vegetables, cooking with vegetables, religious fasting, catholic fasting, dairy-free recipes, vegan breakfast, vegan dinner, vegan recipes easy, dairy free dinner, dairy free recipes keto, pumpkin recipes, Thanksgiving recipes, pumpkin desserts #pumpkinpie #healthydesserts #healthyrecipes #pumpkinrecipes #sugarfreerecipes #veganrecipes

Unfortunately, the original recipe is full of some unnecessary substances like white flour and white sugar. So, today I will show you another version of this deliciousness with much healthier alternatives – wholegrain flour, coconut sugar, and dry fruits (not treated with sugar or other chemicals). If you have a dehydrator at home, you can successfully use it to preserve your own organic fruits and veggies with zero sugar! Alternatively, you can use the kitchen oven at 50° C/ 122° F with the fan-assist option.

Instructions
  1. First, we need to prepare the pasta sheets – simply mix the flour with the water and form thick dough. Roll it out in 5 equal layers.
  2. Next, peel and grate the pumpkin. Place it in a metal pot with some oil and water. Put the lid on the pot and stew the pumpkin until it becomes soft.
  3. In the meantime, cut the fruits in small pieces and grind the walnuts.
  4. When the pumpkin is ready, let it cool down, and then – mix it with the fruits, coconut sugar, the walnuts, the cinnamon, and the oil. Our filling is ready – at this point, you can divide it into 4 parts.
  5. Next, we can start arranging the pumpkin pie – place a pasta sheet at the bottom of the baking pan, then cover it with one part of the sweet stuffing. Continue to interchange the layers until you cover the pie with the last pasta sheet.
  6. Grease it with some of the sunflower oil and bake in a medium oven (at 180° C /356° F) until fully cooked.
Recipe Notes
  • By “sugar-free” I mean without added white sugar and artificial sweeteners!
  • Note: make sure you choose organic dry fruits not treated with chemicals and sugar.
