French Onion Pie - The Vegan Table: 200 Unforgettable Recipes for Entertaining Every Guest at Every Occasion by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau (p. 128)

FOUND THE RECIPE! Again, I halved all ingredients.

1 uncooked pie shell, thawed
1/2 TBL. non-dairy butter, oil, or water for sauteing
2.5 large yellow or white onions, thinly sliced
2 minced garlic cloves
1/2 tsp. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. soy milk
7.5 oz. extra-firm tofu (Which is approximately a little more than 1/2 a block)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2.5 TBL. unbleached flour
1 TBL. nutritional yeast flakes (optional)
1) Preheat oven to 350.
2) Bake pie crust for 10 minutes, remove from oven, then set aside.
3) In a large saute pan, cook onions and garlic in non-dairy butter until onions become translucent. Add sugar and salt to taste. Cook for 15-25 minutes or until onions become carmelized.
4) In a blender or large food processor, combine milk, tofu, salt, pepper, nutmeg, flour, and nutritional yeast until mixture is smooth. (Smooooth operator.) In a large bowl, add contents of blender to sauted onions. Mix.
5) Bake for 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling sets. Serve immediately.


  1. Love,love love this recipe!
    Made mine using buckwheat flour & buckwheat pie shell ,added chives instead of nutmeg,you can hardly tell you're eating tofu.I used a pinch of stevia with extra water to Cook onions for 15-25mins,also halved the ingredients as you have above & baked in 5 small non-stick cases so that it only took 35mins in the oven.Thanks Colleen!

  2. its also great that this recipe is oil free,no frying required =)
