The other night I was watching the news and saw the weather…it was supposed to get cold…Well, cold for us.
I thought yum, a pot pie would be great…then I thought let’s try and make a veggie pot pie rather than adding meat. Just another way to make some lifestyle changes and be a bit healthier!
-serves six crock bowls
-Organic (vegan) pie crust (whole foods)
-A lot of organic veggies…
I used- 1/2 a bag of corn(frozen)
1 stalk of broccoli (cut up)
5 large carrots
8 organic cremini mushrooms
4 stalks celery
and whatever veggies you want. Among my added varies on the amount of pot pie you are making.
-1box vegetable broth(I think 4 cups)
-seasoning-pepper,salt, poultry seasoning
-cornstarch or flour(to thicken broth)
What to do:
1- Sauté veggies in a little olive oil beginning with the harder veggies(meaning carrots before onions).
2-Once veggies are a little softer and all are on pan, add veggie broth. Leaving one cup aside to add later.
3- Cook covered for 20 minutes a nice simmer.
4-Mix 1 tablespoon and remaining cool broth(best to put in container to shake up) then pour into pan.
5-Raising heat slightly get that boil going for sauce to thicken. About 10-15 minutes.
6-Pour a ladle of vegetable mixture into crock bowls.
7-Add a covering of pie crust (cut to fit bowls-round or square- however you like).
8-Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.
9-Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
10-Enjoy with a fork or spoon!
