Preparation

  1. Start by making your crust.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 3 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 2 teaspoons dried rosemary. Using a large fork, add the oil and mix. Little balls/globs of dough will start to form. Add 1 cup of non-dairy milk and mix until a dough starts to form (you may have to switch to a wooden spoon at this point to mix). If needed, add 1 tablespoon of non-dairy milk to the bowl until a dough forms. The dough is perfect when it is slightly sticky, pulls away from the sides of the bowl, but does not stick to your fingers.
  3. Pat the dough into a ball. Divide in two. Press each half into a small, fat disk. Wrap separately in plastic wrap or wax paper and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, but preferably 1-hour (or up to 3 days).
  4. While you chill the crust, start by making the filling and preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  5. Set aside your 9” pie pan or 4 ramekins.
  6. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add 1/2 diced yellow onion. Saute the onion until golden and translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of water or vegetable broth at a time, if onion starts to stick.
  7. Next, add the carrots (1 chopped), peas (1 cup), and corn (1 cup). Cook for 2 minutes. Add ½ teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Mix until well combined. Cook for 1 minute.
  8. Whisk in the 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour until there are no lumps (this will lightly coat the mixture and allow for thickening). Add in 1/2 cup white wine and 2 cups vegetable broth. Add the beans (1, 15 ounce can) and mix until well combined. Bring the mixture to a low boil.
  9. Once boiling, reduce heat to simmer and simmer for 10 minutes and until mixture thickens (the filling will also thicken a little more in the oven).
  10. While the mixture is simmering, get your pie crust from the fridge. Depending on your preference for crust, you can make a pot pie with a bottom and top crust, or just a top. If you prefer a top only, keep refrigerating or freeze the 2nd half for later use.
  11. To assemble crust, roll each piece to about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick -- in the shape of your pie pan or ramekins. If making a double crust, add one crust to the bottom of the pan. Puncture a few holes in the crust with a fork. Par-bake this crust for 7-10 minutes in your pre-heated oven.
  12. While the bottom crust is par-baking, finish the filling by adding 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast, and 2 teaspoons parsley. Taste test and add any seasonings to your preference.
  13. Once the crust is par-baked, add the filling. Cover with the remaining crust over the filling. Use a small knife to cut a few vents through the dough.
  14. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the crust becomes golden brown.
  15. Let the pot-pie cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  16. Enjoy!
