Vegetarian Strawberry Pie

This simple, baked strawberry pie is the perfect balance of sweet and tart and the very best way to celebrate the beginning of summer.


  • 1 recipe Easy Vegan Pie Crust | OR store bought vegan pie crust
  • 2 pints (1 quart) strawberries (about 4 cups)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Optional: Coconut Whip Cream | I used SoDelicious Coco Whip


  1. Bake the pie crust: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. If using my pie crust recipe, prepare the crust according to instructions and line a 9 inch pie pan with the crust, trimming the edges as needed. Poke all over the bottom with a fork and bake for 15-20 minutes. If worried about the crust puffing up, you can place a piece of parchment paper inside the crust and put about 1 cup of dried beans or rice on top. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, wash and hull the strawberries. Slice if desired (I left them whole).
  3. Take 3/4 cup of the strawberries and add to a saucepan. Mash them with a fork or potato masher, then stir in the sugar, water, cornstarch and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, and cook for 2-3 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat.
  4. Place the rest of the strawberries in the cooked pie crust, pointy side up (for prettiness!). You will probably have 2 layers of strawberries; simply arrange them fairly evenly.
  5. Pour the thickened strawberry sauce into the pie pan with the strawberries, evenly distributing the sauce over the berries.
  6. Chill in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours before serving. The pie will thicken and become sliceable. Serve with a dollop of Coconut Whip Cream if desired and enjoy!


  • For gluten free, use my Gluten Free Pie Crust.
  • If you want to lower the sugar, you could probably go down to 1/2 cup sugar, or use coconut sugar or even maple syrup if desired.
  • Try serving with swirls of Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting for a delicious alternative to whip cream. It's quite tasty, like a strawberry cheesecake!
