Vegan apple pie with buckwheat crust Vegan apple pie with buckwheat crust is also gluten-free. Apples and buckwheat are a great match, bringing a warm, warm mood in early fall to the table. This pie is great for sweetening with ice cream or vanilla sauce, but it’s totally delicious on its own too.
I really can’t think of anything more comfortable now except for a piece of pie with a cup of tea.
Apple pie masala chai
Masala chai tea is one of my favorite teas. I never made spice mixes on my own, but I did some research and here are some of my suggested masala chai spices:
Of course there are many varieties of masala chai or spiced tea. I chose this spice as I already knew before baking it would taste great with a vegan apple pie with buckwheat crust.
Ground ginger, cloves, and allspice add a nice kick to baked goods. I usually only use it in the fall and winter when baking muffins, pies, pies, and biscuits.
Ground cardamom and cinnamon on the other hand is an everyday favorite. I use it in almost all sweet foods and even smoothies. I also add ground cardamom to my coffee every day 🙂
Vegan apple pie with buckwheat crusts, a celebration of food from Finland
I made this pie using 90% Finnish ingredients to honor the first Finnish National Food Day celebrating food from Finland. I would have used 100% Finnish ingredients, but the spices and sugars are not from Finland.
I am very proud of our beautifully clean nature and all the plant foods grown here. The gluten-free flour mixture I use regularly like the buckwheat flour I use in this pie is a great example of clean, non-GMO Finnish food.
The apple that I use in this pie is taken from my parents’ neighbor, he is a beautiful man who has the most beautiful garden, and he looks after it very meticulously. These apples taste like my childhood and are one of the best foods (besides berries) from Finland.
Hope you like this delicious chai masala!
