In the past, I’ve celebrated Pi Day with pie-themed potlucks. People have made pizza pies, various savory tarts, vegan variations on shepherd’s pie, apple pie, chocolate pie, and the list goes on. It’s always a fun and delicious time. Because Pi Day falls on a Monday this year, and because I was busy over the weekend, we’re foregoing the potluck this year, but I’ve decided to share some of my favorite vegan pie recipes, which can be considered a virtual potluck, I guess. Enjoy!
9 Vegan Pie Recipes for Pi Day
Tomato Tartlets with Spinach Pesto – These little tartlets are perfect Pi Day snacks or appetizers. They’re also great for potlucks, because everyone can have their own little mini pie – no pie server required!
Peaceful Potato, Pesto, and Arugula Pizza – Pizza is round and has a crust, so it counts as pie. The blend of arugula, pesto, potatoes, and mushrooms is one of my favorite combos, and this is one of my favorite pizzas.
Asparagus and Tomato Tart – I imagine that if you could taste spring, it would taste like this tart. This is a good dish with which to welcome the new season.
Tempeh Tamale Pie – I created this recipe several years ago for a Pi Day potluck and it was a big hit.
Shepherd’s Pie with Cauliflower-Millet Mash Crust – This recipe uses cauliflower-millet mash for the crust, rather than the traditional mashed potatoes, for a healthy twist.
Lasagna Tart – Okay, I’m going to come right out and say this photo needs some help. The photo and recipe are from my early days of blogging, but I promise this tart is really delicious. I’m adding “redo the Lasagna Tart recipe” to my to-do list as we speak.
Chocolate Cream Pie – Of course, you can’t have a celebration of pies without dessert pie! Chocolate cream pie is my all-time favorite.
