Vegetable Pot Pie

Vegetable Pot Pie

There is nothing more comforting, and an easier crowd pleaser than a pot pie. My children eat chicken so I will usually prepare a chicken pot pie, but I decided to prepare a vegetable pot pie so everyone could enjoy and to make my life easier. The rich creamy vegetables encased in a flaky buttery crust, who could resist. This recipe is a definite must-try.

Note: I made my crust by hand, but you are more than welcome to use a pre-made crust to save some prep time.

Possible additions: Chicken breast, seitan, broccoli, and portobello mushrooms
