This 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 together your dough (Tee hee! I’m still so psyched that my recipe worked!)

Preparation

  1. To make the filling: Sauté potato, carrot, celery, onion, corn, mushroom, broccoli, peas, and garlic in a medium pot until softened. Add water or broth and whisk in corn starch. Add bay leaf, oregano, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes and heat, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened and bubbling. Remove from heat, remove the bay leaf, and fill your serving dishes with 1/4 of the mixture in each.
  2. To make the dough:  Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, stir together Amaranth, White Rice flour, potato starch, salt, and Arrowroot. Add in coconut oil, canola oil, apple cider vinegar, and water and mix with a fork or your hands until a cohesive dough ball forms. If necessary you can add a bit more water or amaranth to make it more wet or dry, as needed.
  3. Roll the dough out on a smooth clean surface into a 1/4 inch sheet. Cut out circles slightly larger than your serving dishes. Using a wide spatula, transfer your dough circles onto the top of your filled serving dishes. Gently press your finger around the edge to create a wave, if desired. Brush a thin coat of olive oil over the top of the crust and bake at 350° for 15-25 minutes, checking every few minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn, until surface is slightly cracked and a light golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
