Gluten Free Pumpkin Recipes

Need gluten free pumpkin recipes for the holiday season?  The vegan world may have some tasty ideas for you.  While vegans sometimes use wheat products, they are also known for their skill with substitutions, and taking back control over their ingredient content.  For instance, the Pumpkin Bread mentioned in Lactose Free Pumpkin Recipes uses garbanzo bean (aka chickpea), white rice and tapioca flours.  It also substitutes pumpkin puree for the usual can of ready-made pumpkin pie filling, which, although convenient, has more than just plain pumpkin in it.  Another pumpkin puree dessert is this Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe, which opts for a simple, homemade nut cheese, instead of tofu or vegan cream cheese.  Its hazelnut crust brings on the flavor, while keeping it gluten free.  This Pumpkin Spice Cake suggests spelt, quinoa or rice flours as gluten free options.
