One quick question. I can’t find “silken tofu” where I live. But I can fine “firm” and “extra firm”. Can either of these be modified to work in this recipe? It looks delicious and I am anxious to try it.

Jill Dalton July 31, 2023 - 10:34 am

The firm will work. The pie will be a bit more firm which is ok but you will taste the tofu just a bit.

I’ve made this a few times and it’s awesome. I skip the crust and eat it like pudding. I found that adding the zest of a lemon, or a couple of limes for my lime version, really makes it all pop. Definitely recommended. Off to buy your second cookbook (as I already have the first!). Thanks for your hard work putting these recipes together!

Jill, what size zucchini do you consider small? I’ve seen zucchini labeled “small” that were 6″ long, maybe an inch in diameter, and other “small” zucchini that were a foot or more long and 2 to 3 inches in diameter.

Jill Dalton July 31, 2023 - 10:33 am

Small like the 6″ ones an inch n diameter or even just a tad larger.

Scrumptious! Thank you Jill.

I made this lemon pie last night using lemons and limes. I let it sit overnight in the fridge and I just had a slice. It’s delicious and so much lighter than I thought it would be. I love it and I cannot find even a trace of zucchini flavor. It was a little soft (it held it’s shape but slumped just a bit when I put the slice on the plate) so I’m wondering what I could do to make it just a bit firmer. Thank you for another fabulous delicious recipe! 🍋

You could add a bit more cashews. That is what helps it to set up.

Katharina Dulckeit August 14, 2023 - 12:53 pm

I don’t do well with coconut. Any idea of what I could use instead in the crust

The silken tofu in the video didn’t look like it was Mori-nu brand. Would that work as well? I’m a little doubtful about it setting up, but it looks like it did great in your demo. Thanks!

This is an awesomely delicious pie! None of my dessert-grubbing friends knew it was g/f, vegan, made with a whole pack of tofu, or had a shredded zucchini in it. And since it was a cold dessert on a hot day, it was devoured first. Anyhow, I’m no recipe developer, but I couldn’t help bet wonder if the crust could have used a bit of salt. In any case, I I look forward to perusing your other recipes.

Dorothea August 6, 2023 - 1:48 pm

Wondering if this will set up if you used golden raisins instead of dates?

Jill Dalton August 8, 2023 - 4:07 pm

That is a good question. I think it would set up ok but I’m not sure about the flavor or sweetness

Abigail August 7, 2023 - 3:40 pm

Can you sub yellow squash for zucchini in this recipe?

Jill Dalton August 8, 2023 - 4:06 pm

I think that would work fine

Abigail August 10, 2023 - 6:58 pm

Thank you, Jill! I always love your recipes, they’re my go to for a quick meal!

Lynne August 9, 2023 - 7:29 pm

My daughter is on the fodmap diet and can’t have cashews, would skinned almonds work? Or something else?

Jill Dalton August 13, 2023 - 8:19 am

Yes, skinned almonds will do

Melinda August 14, 2023 - 10:58 pm

This is so delicious! Lemon icebox was always a favorite, so happy I can enjoy a plant based version! Thank you for your recipes!

Another amazing recipe!! This is soooo delicious and pretty too. I posted a photo and everyone wanted to come over for dessert!! I made mine lemon-lime and would even try all lime for a healthy key lime pie.

Dolores Koppi August 28, 2023 - 6:14 pm

Mmmm Mmmm good. I made just the filling and eat it as lemon pudding. I added the zest from two lemons and I found yellow zucchini squash and I used that without peeling. It made the pudding a nice light yellow color.

Jenny Davis September 4, 2023 - 7:06 pm

Hi Jill how about a whole food plant based S’mores pie

Heather September 9, 2023 - 2:26 am

Hi there, What can I swap for the coconut?
