For the filling, 2 ½ Tbsp Cornflour; 3-4 Tbsp agave nectar/ rice malt syrup/ maple syrup; 2 ½ cups Plant Milk (Soy/ Almond/ Coconut); 1 tsp vanilla essence; ½ tsp Turmeric powder; 1 tsp ginger, finely minced; 1 pinch fine black pepper; 1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Sift the flour in a large mixing bowl. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add the agave/ maple/ rice malt syrup and melted coconut oil, and begin mixing.

Once everything has combined, use your hands to mix the mixture crumbling it in between your fingers. When it is fully combined, place in a pie dish greased with baking spray/ coconut oil. Press the mixture firmly down, and up the sides to create an even crust around the whole dish.

Poke a few holes into the crust with a fork, and put into the oven.

Bake for 20 minutes at 180°C. Once golden and brown remove and set aside to cool.

In a medium pot, bring 1 ½ cups of your plant milk to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract and agave/ maple/ rice malt syrup. Stir thoroughly.

In a separate little bowl, mix the cornflour, turmeric, ½ tsp cinnamon, pinch of black pepper, minced ginger and a cup of plant milk until smooth and no lumps are visible.

Add this mixture to the pot and on low heat, stir until thick. This may take roughly 3-5 minutes but do take caution as corn flour can be sensitive to heat, so ensure the stove is on low heat (make sure to not scrape the bottom of the pot when whisking).

Once thickened, remove from heat and allow cooling for a few minutes. Gently pour the mixture onto the crust evenly, and dust with cinnamon.

Allow setting in the refrigerator for at least two hours before serving.
