Here's the thing. Vegan pumpkin pie can be hard to master, and vegan pecan pie can be hard to master. But vegan pumpkin pecan pie is the perfect pie mash-up that solves all the problems.

The pecans add body to the pumpkin, and the pumpkin adds a base for the pecans. Such a simple solution. This ravishing recipe for vegan pumpkin pecan pie from Whole Foods Market uses silken tofu and uses pecans in the crust -- I recommend adding extra pecans to the top too for the full pecan-pie effect.
