Vegan pot pie, one of my favorite comfort recipes ever. It is super warm, cozy, and flavorful, as well as perfect to enjoy during the wintertime.

Ingredients

  • 2 batches of vegan pie crust, you can also use vegan store-bought puff pastry (thawed)
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter or oil, softened, plus a little bit more for brushing
  • 3 cloves of garlic, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 celery stick, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 12 oz store-bought or homemade vegan chicken (340 g), cut into chunks, you can also use seitan or tofu 
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour (40 g)
  • 2 cups vegan chicken stock (480 ml), or vegetable stock
  • ½ cup unsweetened plant milk (120 ml), I used soy milk
  • ½ cup frozen peas (65 g)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF or 200ºC.
  2. Heat the vegan butter (or oil) in a large pot and cook the veggies (garlic, onion, celery, and carrots) over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes or until soft, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the vegan chicken and cook for 3-5 more minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Add the flour and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. Then add the vegetable stock and the plant milk and stir. After that, incorporate all the remaining ingredients, stir again and cook until it thickens, stirring occasionally.
  6. Remove from the stove and set aside.
  7. In the meantime, make your vegan pie crust. You’re going to need 2 disks of vegan pie crust. If you’re going to use a store-bought version, omit this step.
  8. Pour the filling into the pie crust-lined pan. I use a 9-inch or 23 cm round pie pan.
  9. Roll the second vegan pie crust into a round and place over the pie filling. Fold the excess dough behind the bottom crust then crimp the pie crusts together to seal. 
  10. Cut a few slits in the middle of the top crust to allow steam to escape. Brush the top of the crust with melted vegan butter (you could also use oil or plant milk, but I think vegan butter is the best choice).
  11. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until the top crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes to cool slightly before slicing.
  12. Customize it with blends like Italian seasoning, poultry seasoning, or even chicken seasoning, and serve immediately with breakfast potatoes, roasted red peppers, or your favorite side dish.
  13. Keep the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 5 to 7 days.

Notes

  • Feel free to add or omit any veggies you want.
  • I used store-bought vegan chicken, but the homemade version tastes amazing. If you can’t find it or prefer a more affordable alternative, seitan or tofu are also good choices.
  • Pretty much any type of flour will do.
  • Add or omit any herbs or spices you want.
  • Prep time doesn’t include the time you need to make the vegan pie crust.
