Pot pie... somehow a comfort food, isn't it? I remember having the Banquet Chicken Pot Pie when I was a little girl, seemed like such a treat. Well, I no longer eat chicken, but still had a craving for some Pot Pie, only a somewhat home made vegan style one. So here is what I did.
Ingredients for filling:
2-3 cups Veg Broth (or water and bullion cube),
1/2 med white onion, diced.
10 baby carrots diced small,
2 stalks of celery diced small,
4 med sz. russet potatoes peeled and diced small,
1 cup frozen peas,
1 cup frozen corn,
3 cloves garlic minced,
3/4 cup almond milk,
1tsp Poultry seasoning
*Topping: 2 rolls of biscuits (find the lowest fat ones you can, store brands are usually lower fat) OR
3 cups Bisquick, mixed with
1 cup non dairy milk, (I used unsweetened almond milk)
*for a more traditional topping use your favorite pie crust, this one is more like a fluffy biscuit but I love it.
In saucepan with bullion , put in onions, celery, potato, carrots, seasonings, and garlic. Give the carrots a 5 minute head start. Light boil until tender, bout 20 min. Then mix the flour with the almond milk and whisk until smooth, add onion , salt, pepper, and garlic powder to your liking, then pour in with the filling, it will thicken up in just a couple minutes, keep stirring. Pour into lightly oiled or non stick baking dish.
Top with your premade biscuits, (or bisquick or your favorite biscuit dough, and bake approx. 15-20 uncovered until browned. Save a little filling to spoon over the top, Very delicious comfort food.
You can add meat substitutes to the filling if you like, faux chicken, or seitan, or even tofu.
