1. Easy Veggie Pot Pie

This Easy Veggie Pot Pie by Jessica Verma is a fairly simple meal to throw together – just chop up a bunch of vegetables (I used onion, garlic, mushroom, broccoli, corn, peas, carrots, potato, and celery – which sounds like a lot but they are all easy vegetables to chop and there’s not much of any one ingredient.) Then just sauté those in a medium pot until softened and add some water or broth, a bit of corn starch (or potato starch) and let it get nice and bubbly and thick. While that heats you can mix your dough (Tee hee! I’m still so psyched that my recipe worked!)
