Flaky Vegetable Pot Pie

This is from The Vegatarian Meat and Potatoes Cookbook

1 potato diced (I used one sweet potato and one Russet Potato)
Diced Onion
Diced Carrots
Frozen Peas (thawed)
[and any other veggies you want to include, this is a good recipe to use whatever you have in your fridge.]

I have a crust recipe, but it was much easier for me to use pre-made pie crust, so thats what I did.  If you don't have a good pie crust recipe, and want one, I have a tried and true one that is quite easy.

Preheat oven to 350*, lightly oil a casserole dish.

[Cook filling, I just steamed my veggies and softened my potatoes.  Don't steam all the way since they will be cooking quite a bit in the oven.  I just wanted to make sure that they would get done all the way, so I steamed them a bit before hand.  I bet it would work just putting them in raw too though, hmmmm, maybe I should have tried that before I posted this!  :D]

place filling inside pie crust, fold over and press edges with a fork.  Also press top of the pie crust with the fork too, to allow air to vent through.

Bake until heated through and the crust is browned.  40 - 45 mins

[If you want to use the least amount of pie crust possible, you can put in bake-able bowls and just cover the top with the pie crust.]

We really liked this.  It is a nice home-style recipe and it is nice to just throw in any veggies that you have that need to be used as well.  It's very versatile.


  1. Do you add any kind of sauce with it? I am going to try and make this this week actually... and I was thinking maybe a thickened veggie broth?

  2. Whit, we had this for dinner last night :) I made a little gravy for the veggies... I sauteed garlic and onion and one stalk of celery- all minced- in a bit of olive oil then added veg broth. I boiled that for a few and seasoned with salt, pepper and sage... thickened with cornstarch. I mixed the veggies into that before baking. We also put sweet potatoes and corn in. My husband really liked it a lot especially. Thanks for the recipe!
