Vegetable Pot Pie

Best veggie pot pie recipeThe very first time I ever baked a pot pie it was a fail. It was probably four or five years ago. I had just gotten into cooking/baking. My fatal flaw: I didn't precook the potatoes. The crust was awesome, the insides smelled great, but the potatoes were still hard. Making the whole thing nearly inedible. Whoops.Veggie pot pie!I've learned since then, cook those dang 'tater's first. They are finicky. We eat vegetarian more often than not at our house. So if you want pot pie you probably are gonna have to make it yourself. Most store-bought versions feature chicken. This veggie pot pie recipe features potatoes as the "meat" of the dish. So, I guess it could also be called a potato pot pie. 🙂Potato pot pieVegetable Pot Pie, makes 5-6 servings

8-10 small potatoes (if you use lager, baking potatoes you'll only need 3-4)
2 stalks of celery
1/2 onion
5-6 cloves of garlic
15 oz. can of peas and carrots (you can use frozen ones if you prefer)
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons potato starch flour (this is great for making thick soups or gravy)
3 cups vegetable stock
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
1 tablespoon chopped chives
salt + pepper
1 package puff pastry

Peel and rinse the potatoes. Cut into small cubes. Cook in boiling, salted water until soft (8-10 minutes).Veggie pot pie recipeIn a pot heat a tablespoon of olive oil and cook the chopped celery, onion, and garlic until it begins to soften. Remove from pot and set aside. In the same pot melt the butter. Whisk in the potato starch flour, so it's well combined, like a gravy. Season with salt + pepper. Stir in the veggie stock. Stir in the cooked potatoes, celery mixture, and drained can of peas and carrots. Season with ground mustard, salt, pepper and fresh chives. Pour into a pie pan or divide into 5-6 ramekins.

Cover with puff pastry. Brush with an egg wash (one egg whisked with a couple teaspoons of water). Bake at 375°F for 22-25 minutes until golden brown.Best veggie pot pie recipe Serve piping hot. This is sweater-wearing comfort food. What? That doesn't totally make sense? Yeah, but you get what I'm saying right? Just enjoy this guys. It's winter time! xo. Emma

  • Oh my God!!! Definitely gonna try this it looks amazing I’ve been dying to use my ramekins for something like this!???? very happy will keep you posted on how it turns out ty so much

  • Good recipe. I never have much luck with puff pastry – think it’s a patience thing for me…I always rush. This turned out pretty well with little effort. I made with all vegan ingredients and substitutions worked great. Can’t wait to have leftovers for lunch. I will try with mashed potatoes and avoid my struggle with puff pastry. ????

  • I made this last night. Super easy and so tasty- there were no leftovers. Thanks for sharing!

  • Making this right now! Smells great so far. My husband is a vegetarian so I never thought of making pot pies, which I loved as a kid.

  • This looks fantastic, my kids love pot pie so I’ll definitely be making this.

  • Can i use regular flour or corn starch instead of the potato starch flour? Or do you think it would significantly effect the outcome?

  • Great, This is really amazing page, here, I really enjoyed reading your thoughts, I will definitely share this article to my friends out there.

  • how’d you know this is one of my favourite comfort meals!? thanks, emma!

  • It is nearly lunchtime here, it’s cold and I’m so hungry! I’m now drooling at my desk!

  • This sounds amazing! My husband loves pot pies, so I will have to try this! Thank you for the recipe!

  • Oh you! I used to love chicken pot pie, but when I went vegetarian I no longer ate it. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I am really excited to try it out!

  • My sister and I are recent converts to pescetarianism and we’ve been bookmarking yummy foods that fit into our lives and this looks amazing. I am a fan of pot pie so this is perfect.

  • Yum! I love pot pies in the colder months. I usually cave and buy the frozen one but this looks completely doable! Thanks.

  • This looks marvelous! What a great recipe! And served in such a cute dish! 🙂

  • Yum! This looks scrumptious!
    I love how you cook and post loads of vegetarian dishes, it’s so nice! I can’t wait to try this out!

  • So, yours looks really fancy and delicious, but we’ve been making it the same way for years at my house and it’s SO EASY. I can make one in under an hour and we’ve even frozen them to pop in the oven on quick dinner nights. For a vegetarian version all you do is get a set of Pillsbury ready made pie crusts, line the bottom of the pan with one, dump a can of All Veg in there, cover the top and bake. That’s it. It’s like the easiest thing in the world. If you want to get fancy we also add hard boiled egg whites to ours. Of course, it’s probably not as good as veggies you cook on your own, but it sure gets the job done.

  • Ohhhh! This is so so perfect! I am without a doubt going to be making this. Yum!

  • That pie looks gorgeous! So tasty!

  • MMMmmM. Anything-pot pie is alright with me. gravy and buttery crust?? count me in. Thanks for the lovely recipe!

  • Yummmm! I’ll pretty much eat anything that involves either puff pastry or phyllo dough, and even better if it’s a savory pie! Yumm yumm!

  • Love this post! I just opened up my computer with no idea what to make for dinner after a long work day and now I’m all set 🙂

  • This is a great recipe! As a vegetarian, it’s so hard to find the veggie equivalent of dishes like this, chili, etc. I’m definitely going to give this a go because I used to love chicken pot pie eons ago before I became a vegetarian (10 years next summer!)

    Thanks for posting this! 🙂


  • Pot pies are my weakness! I love all of them, and I would easily eat them for every single meal! *.*

  • Yum, looks good and easy. I’m vegetarian too, would substitute a few red lentils or cooked quinoa for the potato starch to up the protein!

  • Love pot pie & I like vegetarian things so probably wouldn’t even miss the chicken. The puff pastry on top is a nice alternative to the usual crust.

  • I love pot pies, actually I love any kind of pies 🙂 This recipe sounds really delicious!

  • That looks awesome! I also prefer vegetarian foods, so excited to try this one out. 🙂

  • Beautiful! Great presentation — The little leaf deals are so cute, and I love those simple (but not boring) white bowls!
