Wow!  So good!  This is Aunt Amy's pot pie recipe, veganized by Elna and Lucy and served over these biscuits. We loved it!  Perfect for a snowed-in day here in Oklahoma.

water for sauteing
1 c. onion, chopped
1 c. celery, chopped

3-4 c. vegetable broth
1 t. poultry seasoning*
3 c. carrots, sliced or diced
3 c. potatoes, diced
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

1 c. non-dairy milk
1 c. raw cashews
1 t. poultry seasoning
1 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper

1/2 c. frozen corn
1/2 c. frozen peas**

  • Saute onions and celery in water for a few minutes.
  • Add broth, 1 t. poultry seasoning, and carrots and bring to a simmer.
  • Add potatoes and garbanzo beans.
  • Simmer until veggies are tender but not overcooked.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Blend non-dairy milk, cashews, 1 t. poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, and 1 c. broth/potato mixture.  (Try to avoid carrots and garbanzos, but don't stress over a few strays.)
  • Add "cream," corn, and peas to veggies.
  • Serve over drop biscuits, regular or herb.
*I happened to have fresh (frozen) poultry seasoning (equal parts rosemary, thyme, sage) this time.  So I put 2 T. of this in the pot and did not put additional in the blended part.

**I did not have peas, so I added an additional 1/2 c. corn.

We make something similar all the time. I like the idea of the Garbonzo Beans, we'll have to try that next time. I always make doubles of this and freeze one for later.

Wow is an understatement! We had this for dinner tonight and it was soooo good! All of the kids loved it too so this will definitely be a regular. I didn't have any celery and had to use extra milk in the blender mixture to thin it a little (I don't think I had enough veggie broth for the amount of potatoes I put in), but it turned out delicious!

I really liked this recipe. I am a fan of pot pie, but have trouble finding vegetarian pot pies, especially ones I like. My husband and I both liked it. I made it vegetarian, not vegan, and used pillsbury biscuits. My husband(non-vegetarian) and I both liked it. I could not get my 18 month old to eat it, which is weird because he is hardly picky
