Now that you have gathered all the ingredients for this delicious vegan cheese pie, let’s dive into the fun part: making it! Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you create a mouth-watering vegan cheese onion pie.

Step 1: Prepare the Crust

Preheat your oven to 350F. In a small bowl, add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to 1 cup of Graham crackers crumbs and stir it well. Drizzle 3 tablespoons of olive oil over the mixture and mix it until combined. Spread the Graham cracker crust mixture onto an 8-inch round pie dish using your fingers. Make sure to cover every corner and press it down with medium pressure. Bake this crust for around 10 minutes, or until it turns golden brown.

Step 2: Make the Filling

In a large mixing bowl, blend 8 ounces of Tofutti better-than-cream-cheese, cream of coconut, grated cathedral city plant-based cheese (60g), 200ml plant milk, 70g Vitalite spread, and one peeled and diced medium-sized potato. Mix them until they become smooth and creamy.

Step 3: Cook the Onion

Heat up some olive oil in a skillet or pot on medium heat. Sauté two finely sliced onions until they caramelize and turn brown. Keep stirring the onions to ensure they cook evenly.

Step 4: Combine Everything and Bake

Pour half of the filling cream cheese mixture onto the baked crust. Add the caramelized onion uniformly on top of it, then pour the remaining cream cheese mixture on top of everything else.

Bake this pie for around 30-40 minutes or until it sets enough to move without being too jiggly in the middle. Take it out of the oven once done and let it cool down before slicing.

Congratulations! You have now made a stunning vegan cheese onion pie that will absolutely steal any dinner party show!

Substitutions and Variations

Allow me to provide you with some delicious substitutions and variations that will help you create a unique twist on this vegan cheese pie recipe:

– For the pie crust: If you prefer a gluten-free option, you can substitute the graham crackers for gluten-free cookies or crackers. You can also use a store-bought vegan pie crust if you don’t have time to make your own.

– For the cheese filling: Try adding some veggies to the cheese filling for an extra boost of nutrition. You can sauté some leeks or spinach and mix them with the cheese filling. You can also swap the tofutti better-than-cream-cheese with another brand of vegan cream cheese or make your own.

– For the topping: While cherry pie filling is a classic topping for cheesecake, you can experiment with different fruit toppings. Blueberry or raspberry toppings will add a burst of fresh flavor to your vegan cheese pie. Alternatively, you can skip the fruit altogether and sprinkle some chopped nuts on top for a crunchy texture.

– For the potato onion filling: If you’re looking for a savory option, you can substitute the cherry pie filling with a potato onion filling. In a pan, add 3 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 onions finely sliced, and 1 medium potato peeled and diced. Cook until softened and season with salt and pepper. Pour this mixture into the pie crust instead of the cheese filling.

– For the cream cheese cake: If you’re looking for something lighter than a full-blown cheesecake but still creamy and delicious, try making this recipe into individual cream cheese cakes by using muffin molds or ramekins. Leave out the cherry pie filling and drizzle each cake with lemon juice or vanilla glaze before serving.

No matter which variation or substitution you choose, this vegan cheese pie recipe will surely impress your guests or satisfy your cravings while also being plant-based and cruelty-free.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

As a busy vegan chef, I understand the importance of having make-ahead and easy-to-reheat options in my recipe repertoire. This vegan cheese pie recipe is certainly no exception.

While this cheese pie is best served fresh out of the oven, you can easily make it ahead of time and store it for later. You should let your pie cool to room temperature before transferring it to an airtight container. Keep it in the refrigerator for up to three days or in the freezer for up to three months.

When you’re ready to reheat your vegan cheese pie, you have a few options. The easiest way is simply to pop it into the oven at 350°F until heated through. How long this will take depends on whether you’re reheating from frozen or refrigerated. For refrigerated pies, heat for about 15 minutes; for frozen pies, bake for closer to 25 minutes.

However, if you prefer not to use an oven, don’t worry—it can be microwaved instead. Simply slice a serving of the cold or thawed pie onto a microwave-safe plate and heat on high for 30 seconds at a time until hot throughout.

Just remember: while the reheated version of this vegan cheese pie still packs a delicious punch, nothing quite beats the original just-out-of-the-oven flavor!

A successful vegan cheese pie relies on the perfect balance of flavors and textures, and a little bit of guidance can go a long way. Here are some tips to make sure your vegan cheese onion pie will come out perfectly every time:

First and foremost, use good quality ingredients. Opt for high-quality vegan cheeses such as Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese or Cathedral City Plant-Based Cheese to achieve the best flavor and texture.

When making the crust, make sure to keep it chilled until ready to use. This will help prevent it from becoming too soft or sticky, making it difficult to handle.

Additionally, if you’re using a gluten-free pie crust, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions closely. This may require additional steps such as pre-baking the crust before adding the filling.

For the cheese sauce, make sure to whisk it continuously while cooking to prevent any lumps from forming. Also, keep in mind that you may need to adjust the seasoning based on the type of cheese being used.

Lastly, be creative with your veggie add-ins! While this recipe calls for onions and potatoes, feel free to add mushrooms or leeks or experiment with different spices such as paprika or cumin to give your pie a unique twist.

With these tips in mind, you’re well on your way to creating an exceptional cheese onion potato pie that will leave everyone craving for more!
