📘 What Is a Pot Pie

A pot pie is a deep-dish pie that consists of a savory filling cooked in a gravy or sauce, and topped with a pie crust. There are many different variations of pot pies, some made with a double crust, single pie crust, or puff pastry.

Here, we will be making a plant-based version that is topped with a single layer of flaky puff pastry.

Ingredients like mushrooms, onion, carrots, green peas, and butter.

🍄 Ingredient Notes

This vegan pot pie recipe requires basic ingredients you probably already have on hand or can find easily. Here is what you will need:

  • Onion and garlic – Feel free to substitute shallots for the onion.
  • Carrot, celery, and green peas
  • Mushrooms – I went with cremini mushrooms, but you can use chanterelles, oyster mushrooms, or a mix of different varieties.
  • White wine – For a more complex flavor and a restaurant-style quality. If you don’t have any wine on hand, you can replace it with more vegetable broth (in that case, lower a little bit the amount of salt).
  • Vegetable broth – Use low-sodium vegetable broth and then adjust the saltiness once the filling is cooked, this way it won’t be overly salty.
  • Coconut milk – Optional, it adds creaminess and richness to the gravy. Feel free to use cashew cream or plant-based cream.
  • Flour – To thicken the sauce. You can use all-purpose flour or your favorite gluten-free flour blend.
  • Vegan pie crust – Both regular pie crust and puff pastry will work. I personally went with puff pastry for a crispier and flakier texture. You can use homemade pie crust or store-bought crust if you want to save time. If using store-bought, check the ingredients to make sure it is a vegan crust.

🥧 How to Make It

  1. Sauté the aromatics. Cook the onion and garlic until fragrant and slightly golden brown.
  2. Add the vegetables. Next, add the carrots, celery, mushrooms, and green peas, and cook for a few minutes. Deglaze with soy sauce, white wine, and vegetable broth.
  3. Thicken the sauce. Add the flour and cook for 2 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  4. Top with the crust and bake. Top the filling with vegan pie crust, brush with almond milk, and bake until golden brown!

📔 Tips

  • Prepare ahead of time. The mushroom filling can be prepared up to 2 days ahead of time. Keep in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Season properly. Taste and adjust the seasonings of the mushroom filling before baking. It shouldn’t be bland and salty enough.
  • Make it heartier. This vegan pot pie is incredibly versatile, you can add cooked potatoes, butternut squash, lentils, beans, crumbled tofu, or tempeh to make it even more filling.
  • If you are using puff pastry: cut it about 1 inch larger than your pot or pie pan, as it will shrink a bit during baking.
  • Double pie crust: You can also bake this pie as a double pie crust if you prefer to serve this as a sliceable pie.
