Vegetable Pot Pie

This recipe lends itself to creativity, as it can be prepared with almost any combination of vegetables. The biscuit crust is a low-fat version of a traditional pot-pie topping. Soy milk can replace the buttermilk to make it vegan; however, the crust may end up a bit heavier.



Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. honey
Ingredient Line: 
¼ to ½ cup white wine or vegetable stock
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup chopped onion
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup thinly sliced celery
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup diced red bell pepper
Ingredient Line: 
⅔ cup thinly sliced carrot

⅔ cup sliced frozen green beans
Ingredient Line: 
⅓ cup frozen peas
Ingredient Line: 
⅓ cup whole wheat flour
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup skim milk or soy milk
Ingredient Line: 
2 cups vegetable stock
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. salt or low-sodium soy sauce
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. dried thyme
Ingredient Line: 
¼ tsp. dried sage
Ingredient Line: 
¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Ingredient Line: 
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper

Ingredient Set Name: 

Basic Biscuit Crust


Ingredient Line: 
1 ¾ cups unbleached or whole wheat pastry four
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. salt
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. baking powder
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. baking soda
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. butter or margarine
Ingredient Line: 
¾ cup buttermilk or soy milk


  1. Coat an 8-inch casserole dish with vegetable cooking spray. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In heavy saucepan, heat wine or stock over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add celery, bell pepper, carrot, green beans and peas. If mixture begins to dry out, add 1/4 cup more wine or vegetable stock. Cook, stirring often, 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Sprinkle flour over vegetable mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes.
  3. In glass measuring cup, combine milk or soy milk and 2 cups vegetable stock. Slowly add to vegetable mixture while whisking constantly. Sauce will start to thicken. Add parsley, salt or soy sauce, thyme, sage, pepper and cayenne. Cook, stirring constantly, until filling is thickened. Remove from heat, transfer mixture to prepared casserole and set aside.
  4. Biscuit topping: In large bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut butter or margarine into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal. In measuring cup, combine buttermilk or soy milk and honey. Add liquid to flour mixture, stirring with a fork to form a stiff dough. Add more buttermilk if dough is too dry. Knead lightly in bowl, 3 to 5 minutes, until dough is no longer sticky. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Roll out into shape to cover casserole dish or cut into wedges.
  5. Lay biscuit topping lightly over filling. Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbling, 20 to 30 minutes.

baking temp?

I've been making this recipe for years. I've had problems with the crust as I'm not much of a baker, therefore I make a regular pie crusts. I veganize it with soy milk and it's awesome. Maybe add a little herb tofu for protein and you've got yourself a meal. By the way Linda the temp is 400F

Really delicious! My husband and I both had thirds!

Great recipe! Made it vegan (w/soy milk, brown rice syrup) and it was fabulous. Highly recommend it! It was my first time making a crust, and it turned out great.

I made this tonight - absolutely delicious, easy, and it looked just like the photo :) Yummy, yummy, yummy! I added chickpeas for protein and also kale & butternut squash... the *best* pot pie we've ever had, hands down! :)

This was fantastic! I added cauliflower, subbed shallots for the onion, and used regular all-purpose white flour and fresh herbs (thyme, marjoram, sage, and rosemary). Also had extra biscuit dough and made a few little biscuits that are so good that I might make more of them!


Can you freeze the vegetable pot pie?
