Vegan Wins Pie Contest

A vegan pie, baked by Susan Asato, wins second place in the 2011 National Pie Championships.

Susan Asato, from Aliso Viejo, Calif., took home a second place ribbon at the 2011 National Pie Championships for her Vegan Blueberry-Cranberry Pie with Pecan Streusel Topping. The annual competition is held in Orlando, Fla. and is sponsored by the American Pie Council. Asato’s pie won against all other fruit and berry pies. Her partner wrote on the Native Foods Café Blog, “Her goal has never been personal recognition, but rather to do her small part to help show that vegan food can stand on its own.” Asato has won eight previous ribbons for her baked creations, and has posted her winning recipe online.
