I loved pecan pie before I became vegan. Every holiday meal at Grandpa & Grandma’s featured a choice of pecan pie or pumpkin pie for dessert. I will always remember walking into their warm house from the bitter cold November Minnesota weather every Thanksgiving. We were always greeted at the door by the warm smiles of my Grandparents and the unforgettable aroma of my Grandma’s amazing cooking. I am still trying to figure out how any of us ever had any room left in our bellies for dessert! Yet, there always seemed to be just enough room left for a slice of pie. I love pumpkin pie as much as anybody possibly could but I always chose pecan pie because I liked it just a little bit more. I told Athanasia I wanted to veganize my favorite pie of all time so we made this delicious gluten free vegan pecan pie. This is how I celebrate my American roots for Thanksgiving here in Greece!

It is one of my favorite weeks of the year, American Thanksgiving! I miss the Thanksgiving days of old already and it is only my first year away from the United States. There is nothing quite like waking up to the sweet smells of Thanksgiving dinner filling the house from the oven!
