Veggie Pot Pie
The first words out of John's mouth were, "This is a keeper!" I made a few adjustments to the recipe. I was a little confused with the directions. First, it said to cook the veggies and then it said the potatoes should be raw. I decided to steam everything (potatoes included) for 8 minutes before adding it to the crust and this worked wonderfully! I also added 3 celery stalks and half an onion to the veggie mix. I used frozen corn and peas.
For the crust I used whole wheat flour and Earth Balance shortening. It turned out flakey and crisp. And the perfect amount for both top and bottom to be thick enough to hold everything in. I followed the tip to cover the edges of the crust with foil to prevent burning and it seemed to work nicely, no burning!
