WICKED BAD ASS POT PIE

Lets get right down to it! First execute the foundation and then erect the dish with all its components, one as important as the next. Definitely for the more advanced cooks, however, very do-able for anyone willing to take the time and well worth the efforts and oh man will this capture the hearts of anyone you serve it to.

VEGETABLE FILLING:

WICKED HEALTHY WHITE GRAVY:

Instructions

VEGETABLE FILLING:

  1. Assemble single layer of all vegetables onto sheet pan and roast @400 for 15 minutes to slightly brown. They will still be raw and wicked al dente to the bite. This will give em some color and added flavor for the pot pie filling. You can skip this step if it’s too much for ya.

    *Pie dough, Crust: Since we’re not bakers we won’t pretend to be. We followed the Savory Pie Crust Recipe from http://www.veganbaking.net/ found here —> http://www.veganbaking.net/recipes/pies/flaky-pie-crust
    This may be done the evening or morning before.  Thank you to the lovely and talented Amelia for the help with the entire crust recipe.  One of these days I’ll have the patience to bake.

GRAVY:

  1. In medium sauce pot add parsnip, garlic and cashews, add water to cover and bring to boil for 10 minutes or until parsnips, garlic and cashews are soft / remove from heat, strain
  2. Add cooked mixture to blender and begin blending on low
  3. Drizzle in vegetable broth, soymilk and sherry
  4. Switch to Blend on high. Add white pepper, onion pow and salt.
  5. Stop blending for a second and add fresh herbs and then blend for another 10 seconds only to incorporate herbs. Don’t blend too much and make the gravy green

FINISHING – TIME TO BRING IT ALL HOME:

  1. in Pie pan lay out pie crust or just use the crust for the top – it’s up to you.
  2. Add vegetables
  3. Pour in White gravy, enough to just fill – do not over fill
  4. Cover with pie crust – design as you wish, crimp the edges cut leaves out of extra dough for garnish, etc.
  5. Once ready for oven – brush crust with a little melted earth balance and bake until golden brown and lovely.

Notes

We’ve found that a the cast iron skillets work great as presented here.
