Vegetarian Pot Pie

This Pot Pie recipe was born from the many different recipes that I have tried, and tweaked, from over the years. In 2021 we made our final tweak to the recipe and converted it to be vegetarian. It began when I started off looking for a recipe that didn’t use any canned cream of whatever soups, but a lot of the recipes I found also had me prepping the vegetables from scratch and making my own crust. Even with my love of cooking I have never really been able to get the hang of making pie crusts (though I do still try on occasion) and I didn’t want to spend all afternoon in the kitchen either. So I needed to make a recipe that was quick, easy, didn’t use any canned ingredients, but still tasted like it took all afternoon to make.

In this Vegetarian Pot Pie recipe I use boxed pie crust and frozen vegetables to save time, but also make the gravy from scratch to preserve the best flavor. The end result is a Vegetarian Pot Pie that will win over everyone, including people who say that they do not like pot pie. At least that is what my mom and sister tell me.
