This recipe may not look like the traditional pot pie, but it has all of the makings of one. A golden brown encasing of bread and a deliciously savory and chunky filling. Specifically, this pot pie has a minestrone soup filling – broth, diced tomatoes, beans, onions, veggies – and a wheat biscuit-like crust that is flavored with coconut oil and a touch of rosemary. Talk about comfort food!

How to Prepare Minestrone Pot Pie With Biscuit Topping [Vegan]
- Preheat the oven to 425°F.
- In a large dutch oven, sauté diced onion in olive oil until translucent. Add celery, carrots, and zucchini and sauté for 5-7 minutes. Once the vegetables are starting to cook, add the minced garlic and spices and cook for one additional minute. Add broth, a can of tomatoes, and cannelloni beans. Once all the ingredients are simmering, add the kale leaves. Stir ingredients and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes.
- Now, make the biscuits. In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of whole wheat flour, baking powder, rosemary, and salt. Add coconut oil to the flour mixture and use your fingers to combine into a sandy texture. In a separate measuring cup, whisk apple cider vinegar into 3/4 cup of unsweetened milk of choice. Then, slowly pour the milk into the flour, along with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and stir until just combined. The dough will be very sticky and thick.
- Place biscuit dough onto a large piece of parchment paper. Use your hands to flatten into a square about 1/4-inch thick. Use a mason jar or drinking glass to cut out 7-8 biscuits.
- Now, assemble the pot pie. Top the soup with the biscuits. Using a pastry brush, top biscuits with a light amount of olive oil.Bake the minestrone pot pie for 8 minutes. Take the dish out of the oven, brush the biscuits one more time with olive oil, and then continue baking for 2-3 more minutes. The biscuits will be a light golden brown when done. Serve.
