Soymilk Pumpkin Pie
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1(15 ounce) can pumpkin
- 1 1⁄4 cups soymilk
- 2 large eggs
- 1(9 inch) pie shells (purchased, thawed if frozen or using your pastry recipe)
- In a large bowl, mix sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves; add pumpkin, soy milk, and eggs; whisk until well blended.
- Pour mixture into unbaked pastry.
- Set pie on bottom rack of a 425°F oven; bake for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350°F; continue baking until center of pie is set and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 45 minutes longer.
- Set pie on a rack until cool to touch, at least 2 hours.
- After serving, chill any remaining pie in an airtight container.
Soy Sauce Turkey Marinade
- 2 cups water
- 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 2/3 cup lemon juice
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 2 large oven roasting bags
- 1 turkey (12 to 14 pounds)
- Combine the first seven ingredients; set aside and refrigerate 1 cup for basting. Place one oven roasting bag inside the other. Place turkey inside inner bag; pour in remaining marinade. Seal bags, pressing out as much air as possible; turn to coat turkey. Place in a shallow roasting pan. Refrigerate overnight, turning several times.
- Remove turkey; drain and discard marinade.
- Preheat oven to 325°. Place turkey on a rack in a large roaster. Bake, uncovered, 3 to 3-1/2 hours or until a thermometer inserted in a thigh reads 170°. Baste frequently with reserved marinade. When turkey begins to brown, cover lightly with a tent of aluminum foil.
- Remove turkey from oven; tent with foil. Let stand 20 minutes before carving. If desired, skim fat and thicken pan drippings for gravy; serve with turkey.
