I would use a can of white beans instead of the chickpeas just to be on the safe side. After reading and articule at www.allergicliving.com where its said is probably ok, I asked my son's allergy Dr. and she told me to avoided along with lentils.
The other difference between pumpkin and pecan pies is the body or structure of the filling. This is why I like to do smaller individual pecan pies. A pecan pie is a sugar custard and does not have the pumpkin puree to help with stability. I don't think only using a starch to set up a pecan pie will work. If you can do soy, Post Punk Kitchen (very reputable vegan cooking blog) has a Maple Pecan Pie that uses tofu.
For egg free pecan pie I prefer to make individual little pies called Pecan Tassies. We have a recipe in the Safe Eats Recipe collection that is available for Family Members (cost is $25 or sponsored memberships available). Family Members can find the recipe here: Pecan Tassies
Just an FYI that I tried that Pecan Tassie recipe as a bigger pie and it was messy disaster! That filling doesn't have the structure you need for a bigger pie. It is mainly sugar and made a caramel fountain all over my oven! It might work OK in mini pies that bake for shorter time, but not so much in a full size pie.
This is a great recipe! We have a corn and a dairy allergy in our household and my kids and I are making a pumpkin pie from scratch for Thanksgiving... I have a blog entry that describes how to prepare pumpkin from scratch (as in using those little pumpkins the kids picked out around Halloween time). It also tells how to make your own dairy-free, corn-free graham cracker crust, and what to do with the seeds from the pumpkin! :-) http://anunexpectedlynourishin...ves-way-to-fall.html

Hey! That's the pie I made yesterday! Except that I used canned coconut milk, modified corn starch, and added cinnamon. Cybelle Pascal's rice milk version of the recipe includes a packet of gelatin as well, I guess it helps thicken.

What are some other ways people deal with Halloween? I don't think this teal thing should stop by any means, but I am having a hard time seeing it as a widely accepted solution. I have a peanut/treenut allergic kid and I have very mixed emotions... On the one hand, I like the added awareness, but on the other hand... I think this might be expecting too much . In our town, some neighborhoods get hundreds of kids and per item non-food stuff can get expensive. Plus, I really don't want my...
Hi RW! Some people keep the cost down by ordering bulk non-food treats online, or by giving kids a choice and asking, especially if the parents are nearby. Have you also seen this year's post on craft ideas ... You could also bake a fun safe-for-you cake . My preteen just likes being with his friends, for the most part. I like the idea of donating extra candy to volunteers in your town. Some dentists have always collected it in exchange for something...
