“Home cooking” recipes are flooded with meaty and cream-filed dishes. But we’re here to change that. Chicken pot pie is a warm yummy food that has a feeling of home. So why not make it vegan? Subtract the chicken, add extra veggies, a protein powder for an extra punch, a little veggie broth and of course some corn starch to thicken it up. And voila! An autumn staple with a plant-based twist.
So let’s check out this fairly easy recipe:
Description: Vegan Pot Pie
Ways to make low-waste: Buy fresh veggies. Shuck and cut corn. Make your own pie crust. Try making your own veggie stock or buy the condensed veggie stock from Better Than Bullion (it comes in a neat little reusable glass jar!). Get local seasonal veggies. Buy seasonings in bulk.

Total time: 45 minutes
2 pie crusts (homemade or store bought)
1 cup of almond milk
1 tablespoon of Better Than Bouillon: Veggie
1/2 of a large onion
1/2 of a large potato
2 ears of corn
1 large carrot
1 can of peas
Zatural Hemp Protein Powder
Zatural Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
2 tablespoons of Corn Starch
Dice veggies (carrots, potatoes, corn, onions) and break apart broccoli
Saute in large pot with olive olive and spices.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Once onions are clear, and the potatoes have cooked, add canned peas.
While the veggies are heating up, make the pot pie sauce.
Add corn starch to 1 cup of water and whisk.
Let set corn starch and water mixture set for one minute, then add Better Than Bouillon: Veggie and Almond milk. Whisk until smooth.
Pour creamy mixture into the pot with the veggies. Add more spices (I did nutritional yeast, pink salt, pepper, and garlic powder) and Zatural Hemp Protein Powder.
Let the mixture simmer while you set up the pie crust.
Place pie in oven for 20 minutes, and broil for the last 2 minutes.
Let cool for 5 minutes.
Serve with beets to round out your rainbow plate.
Enjoy your pie….. and remember that leftovers are almost better than the night of!
