FILLING: Steam tempeh for 20 minutes, then either shred or dice
finely. Stir into the remaining ingredients in a large saucepan.
Bring to a simmer & cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat & set aside to cool.

until a soft dough is formed. Add more juice if necessary. Divide
into 2 pieces, one slightly larger than the other. Place larger ball
of dough onto a lightly floured surface & roll into a 9" circle.
Place into an 8" pie plate.
Spoon filling into the pie crust. Roll out remaining ball of dough &
