My vegan sister asked for a pecan pie for Thanksgiving this year and I've never made a pecan pie before. I've googled up a bunch of vegan recipes, but I'm looking for recommendations or tips from people who have actually baked a vegan pecan pie and have a favorite recipe.
I bake plenty of pies, including vegan ones, but not pecan. Most of the recipes I've found replace the egg with tofu or aquafaba or flaxseed. I'm comfortable cooking with any of those but each is a little different in terms of texture, etc. I'd also love something low sugar, but not sure if that's feasible in a pecan pie!
I'm good on the vegan crust. My sister lives a few blocks away and we are already in a very careful covid pod together (she's got significant health issues).
