This delicious recipe is a riff on my Italian grandmother’s Easter Rice Pie, which was laden with 3 pounds of ricotta and a dozen eggs, not to mention the extraordinary amount of sugar. I’ve veganified it, and added the dried fruit and chocolate chips. You can change it up into a savory dish by removing the sugar, fruit and chips, and adding chopped vegan deli slices and olives. Be creative with this one. It’s a great base that can show up in a variety of ways, both sweet and savory.
You can make it ahead, it is actually better when made the day before. You can serve it in a long baking pan or cut it into squares. Either way, your guests will be absolutely delighted with this dessert.
