“This is a lighter version of my grandmother's pumpkin pie, using egg substitute and skim milk. Also, instead of nutmeg, allspice, and cloves, I use Garam Masala, a traditional Indian Spice that smells very similar to that combination of spices. The result has an aroma that does still taste like pumpkin pie, but with a subtle flavor no one will be able to identify.”
