Raw Mini Pie Challenge roundup

Early last month, Lisa and I put out the call to food bloggers everywhere to create unique mini pie recipes that use only raw, vegan ingredients and celebrate the abundance of fresh produce available in your region. The response was incredible. Freshly picked raspberries, peaches, figs, blackberries, cherries and apricots were transformed into perfect little personal pies, ready to be enjoyed without turning on the oven.

Here are the amazing entries we received for this recipe challenge:

Jess of Cupcakes and Kale made a chocolate raspberry mini pie.

Carol of World Peace Food created a peaches and cream pie.

Rachel of My Munchable Musings made a taste of Tuscany tart.

Rachel of My Munchable Musings also created a blackberry almond petite pie.

Jackie of Vegan Yack Attack made a raw neopolitan pie.

Deanna of The Mommy Bowl entered a triple chocolate cherry pie.

Natasha of The Healing Kitchen made a key lime mini pie.

And Ricki of Diet, Dessert and Dogs made an apricot swirl cheesecake mini pie.

Thank you to everyone who put the time and effort into developing such awe-inspiring recipes. Over the next few days, Lisa and I will take on the difficult task of narrowing down the entries to three finalists. If you’re in the Toronto area, we are planning a tasting party this Saturday at the Vegetarian Food Festival to help us choose the winner. Let me know if you’re interested in tasting samples and voting for your favourite.
