View Full Version : Question about eggs and pumpkin for pie
11-19-2005, 08:47 PM
I want to try a pumking pie recipe from Carol Alts book for pumking pie. It asks for raw, organic, fertile egg whites. I have some organic eggs from Whole Foods which I really bought for my family. How common is eating raw eggs to you raw food pros? Is there a substite? Also, being a busy momma..has anyone ever seen canned ( ha ha) raw, organic pumpkin but any chance???? I would pay a lot..LOL

On this particular forum, we don't advocate eating raw eggs or other raw animal products. Some raw fooders do consume those things, but we don't discuss that here. Thanks!
A sub may be flax goop (from soaking flax seeds) as it has the feel and binding properties of egg whites and many vegan recipes use flax seed goo or even ground flax seeds mixed in water as an egg sub.
Oh...and nope, never seen raw, organic canned pumpkin. There may be organic canned, but doubt it's raw! Did you see Rawpriestess' recipe for pumpkin pie in the recipe section here? She said to grate the pumkin, mix with olive oil and put in the dehydrator for a bit to soften it up.
Here's the link to the thread with RP's pumkin pie recipe: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8144

That seems to help it all hold together. I think that's what the egg is for in the recipe. I have used ground flax in some of my recipes, when it is too runny or watery, and it always firms it up. I think the flax gives it a nutty flavor, but I prefer that over the psyllium. I'm not sure if psyllium is raw or not. I went to a raw foods class at Whole Foods and that's what he used. The pie was out of this world! I hope this helps. I would guess maybe 1-2 tablespoons of flax or psyllium per egg?????

Nothing in a can is ever raw!
Good luck with your yummy raw pie. :)
