I need to figure out some way of making a pumpkin pie without the eggs... I'm also gluten intolerant and can't eat peanuts, pork, or corn, but I doubt those three will be an issue here. :) I do have ener-g egg replacer but I'm wondering if I should maybe do silken tofu instead of that since it's supposed to be a sort of custard type texture.

 

Any thoughts here?

Most egg-free recipes call for silken tofu. Definitely don't use Ener-g for a pumpkin pie!

Out of curiosity, why shouldn't one use Ener-G for a pumpkin pie?

In my experience, Ener-g has not worked well at all for custard-type things.

I've been using this recipe.  I sub in some flaxmeal for the egg replacer since there are things in the egg replacer sourced from corn.  Make sure not to over process it as it can get gummy.  http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/2008/10/vegan-pumpkin-pie-worthy-of.html

 

Next I am planning to try this custard.  http://www.elanaspantry.com/pumpkin-custard/

I am allergic to eggs so I use "bryanna's vegan pumpkin pie" over at the veganconnection.com. I will let you do the googling as my internet is too slow today. This recipe is so delicious. It uses tapioca starch (in place of corn starch in your case), and no tofu. It has to set for an hour, refridgeration prefered to be able to cut it. I make a GF rice crust for the family and an almond flour crust for myself.

Can you have Egg Beaters at all? That's what we use (or the equivalent store brand)  in our pumpkin pie and it turns out great. You'd never know the difference.
