vegans just wana have fun!! that means eating hearty, comforting classics like pot pie. today, i am oh so thrilled to introduce to you my delicious version, Gluten-free and Vegan Pot Pie. from healthy ingredients to a buttery, flaky, gluten-free crust, this recipe has it going on.
need some comfort food in your life? give this a try and let me know! alex and i are OBSESSED. there are no funky ingredients in this recipe and it’s easy to make. just make sure the tempeh you’re using is gluten-free! this article has gluten-free brands :).
basically, there’s going to be three steps in the cooking process.
first, the veggies cook on the stovetop and while that’s happening, you can make the gluten-free crust!
this isn’t my first time making vegan pot pie! i actually have a fantastic recipe that i made with whole wheat flour. i don’t have a gluten sensitivity or anything so for me, it worked!
however, if you do or just want to eat gluten-free, Gluten-free and Vegan Pot Pie is an excellent option. it’s not a heavy recipe either!
yes, it’s totally creamy, but i don’t use coconut cream or anything. actually, with just a couple of tbsp of cornstarch and some plain unsweetened almond milk, you can have a fantastic sauce!
idk about you, but i was NOT about to make the crust by hand lol. some genius invented the food processor, so you know i’m going to use it.
you can simply add the gluten free all-purpose flour, cubes of butter, veggie broth, garlic powder and sea salt to the food processor and blend on high.
this beautiful, light golden dough will form and it’s SUPER easy to work with- not sticky or anything.
instead of rolling it out into one large rectangle, i just made medium size circular pieces about 1/4-1/3 inch thick and placed them on top.
to add some protein into the mix, tempeh was my go-to. you can omit this altogether, but it’s a great hearty component to add!
if you’re not sure what tempeh is, here’s a just overview! according to the spruce eats, tempeh, is a soy food with high protein content and it’s a cake-like substance made from cooked + slightly fermented soybeans.
the fermentation helps break down the phytic acid in soybeans, which makes the starches in tempeh easier to digest. after they are fermented, the soybeans are formed into a block.
tofu would probably not be the best option in this recipe to be honest because of it’s inability to hold up as well as tempeh. however, you can always try it!
have you tried vegan pot pie before? i’m so excited to see what y’all have to say about my version.
after working super hard on it, i know that it’s perfect and will turn out amazing!
