A hearty, healthy, vegan root vegetable pot pie that will warm you from the inside out.
Picture this. A roaring fire, a glass of wine, a fresh green salad, and a rustic and hearty root vegetable pot pie. Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it? This is one of my favorite winter recipes, and it’s perfect for the holidays. it just makes you want to slow down and exhale. And let’s be honest, even though this is the most wonderful time of the year, it’s also the most hectic, and we all deserve a break.
You could live in the busiest part of the biggest city, and this will make you feel like you’re sitting in a farmhouse kitchen on a still and silent night. Isn’t it funny how food can change your mood and evoke feelings of peace and solitude?
So what’s in this enchanting recipe that has the power to make you stop and smell the carrots? Well, carrots to start, and purple potatoes, celery root, butternut squash, and red onion. There is also a savory thick broth that is wonderfully flavorful and satisfying. All of that, stuffed inside a whole grain pie crust (adapted from Ina Garten’s recipe), that’s a little crispy and a little chewy.
You might think that this is a difficult recipe because you have to make the pie crust and the filling, and then put them together and bake them until they’re golden brown. You’d be wrong. If you have a food processor the crust takes all of ten minutes to whip up. Although you will have to let it chill for thirty minutes before you can roll it out. But that’s really not a big deal, because you can cook the vegetables while it’s chilling.
Look how incredibly colorful this assortment of vegetables is. Beautiful, healthy, and delicious.
This is the kind of recipe that truly forces you to spend a little time getting to know your food. Washing, peeling, dicing, sautéing, rolling, and baking, there are many steps, but all of them are weirdly relaxing and very simple. And more importantly, the end result is so satisfying.
I hope you enjoy this vegan root vegetable pot pie recipe as much as my family and I do. It’s the kind of dish that warms your soul.
To make individual pot pies you’ll need 8 ounce ramekins like these. This makes cooking so much easier.
