Chef Ramses Bravo shows us how to take the classic taste of pumpkin pie and transform it into a plant-based cheesecake that is a pleasure for the eyes and the mouth! Start by preparing the crust with a sweet and nutty combination of dates and pecans. Then simmer two separate fillings on the stove – one pumpkin and one pear. Arrange the fillings atop the baked crust and use a toothpick to create a beautiful swirl pattern. After chilling in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 6 hours) it is time to treat your loved ones to a bite of fabulous fall flavor.
