My husband grew up with pot pies, but a “vegetarian pot pie” sounded to him just about as good as a ”tofu steak.” This pot pie was a pleasant surprise, because it tasted just like a pot pie should: creamy and crunchy in all the right places. I used organic frozen vegetables for this recipe, which made things quick and quick is always good when you have a hungry family.
This pot pie can also be a healthy family meal: green beans will supply your family with manganese; corn and green peas add fiber; carrots add vitamin A and onions and garlic offer immune support. Fresh cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable that may offer protection against breast cancer, among other things. A Chinese study recently presented at the 103rd annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) revealed that the more cruciferous vegetables women with breast cancer eat, the more likely they are not only to survive their condition, but also to add more years to their lives. See Breast cancer statistics for up to date statistical data, prevention and treatment options.
You need two pie crusts for this recipe and if you want your pie to be gluten-free than obviously, you need gf crusts. I baked these almond flour crust s.
