Spring is practically around the bend and in spite of the fact that I’m anticipating hotter climate, I’m definitely going to miss the solace food from fall and winter. Generous dinners, similar to this vegetable pot pie, are a top pick in our home. Suggestive of the little pot pies from the cooler area I cherished even a youngster, yet short the prepared chicken and additives. 😝 Although I’m the vegan in the family encompassed by a lot of carnivores, everybody appreciated this veggie-rich dinner. We utilized a mix of veggies and mushrooms in lieu of chicken, however don’t hesitate to substitute any of the veggies for other people, you may have close by, similar to green beans, cauliflower, corn, and so on, or include some cooked chicken, on the off chance that you’d like. Yet, genuinely, it’s heavenly with no guarantees.

INSTRUCTIONS

prepare the crust:

  1. Combine flour, sugar, and salt (and xanthan gum if making gf version) into a large mixing bowl or food processor. Cut in or pulse in shortening and cold butter, just until mixture is coarse and no large chunks of fat remain. Mix in water a tablespoon at a time (and egg, if using) just until dough holds together.
  2. Cover and let rest in a cool place until ready to use.

make the filling:

  1. Preheat oven to 375ΒΊF. Wash and prepare the veggies. Place a dutch oven or heavy pot onto the stove over medium-high heat. Drizzle with a little oil and saute the onions, garlic, and celery for 1–2 minutes. Stir in potatoes, carrots, and mushrooms, and season generously with salt and pepper, then add the herbs. Pour in enough vegetable broth to almost cover the veggies. Cover and bring to a light boil.
  2. Mix together milk/broth and starch to make a slurry. When broth is boiling, stir in the peas and starch slurry, mixing until broth begins to thicken. If by chance your filling is too thick, you can add a bit more broth to thin it out some.

putting it together:

  1. Pour filling into a 2–3 quart casserole dish.
  2. Roll out pie crust between two sheets of parchment paper a little larger than the size of your pan. Use a little extra flour if it sticks.
  3. Carefully transfer the crust to the top of the pan (I find it easier to use the parchment to invert it onto the filling.) Tuck under the edges of the crust and crimp with a fork or flute with your fingers.
  4. Brush with milk or water and sprinkle the top of the crust with coarse salt and pepper (optional.)
  5. Cut a few slits into the pie for steam to escape and place the casserole dish onto a baking sheet. This keeps the filling from spilling out into your oven.
  6. Place the baking sheet into the oven on the middle rack and bake for 50–60 minutes, or until the crust is lightly browned and filling is bubbly. Gluten-free crust will remain very light in color. Makes 6–8 servings.
