Easy Candy Veggie Pies Recipe

I was thrilled when Imperial Sugar introduced us to their holiday recipe collection. One of the recipes included are sweet and sour pumpkin gummies loaded with Vitamin C. They looked so yummy but we didn’t have all of the ingredients on hand – so this is our adaptation of their recipe.

LET’S MAKE candy VEGGIE PIE RECIPE

Please tell me I am not the only parent who struggles to feed her kiddos enough veggies.

We adapted the recipe with ingredients that we had in our house.  We didn’t have any orange juice – I love how brilliant the color of our pie pieces was with the carrot and the beet juice.  We followed the instructions over at the Imperial Sugar site for the process.

Feel free to adapt!  You can create a variety of veggie “pies”. I bet Blueberry Spinach or Orange and Red Sweet Pepper would be yummy!

Yum! Now your kids are enjoying a festive slice of pie, a piece of candy, and eating a portion of veggies – all at once!

This recipe made a TON of pies. I think we got about 8 full pies and close to fifty individual pieces. I’d love to find a way to incorporate more whole foods into the process if we do this again.
