creamy homestyle pot pie

i mean, let’s get real: is there anything more comforting than pot pie? it’s warm, it’s creamy, it’s just delish in a dish. and lucky for you, this one’s good for you! :) so eat to your heart’s content. well. be reasonable. moderation is always the key. but really. go hog-wild. this is perfect for the holidays too! A nice big scoop of creamy pot pie goes well with any thanksgiving meal!


1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and diced

1-2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

3-4 redskin potatoes unpeeled and diced

1 large white onion chopped

1 cup chopped carrots

2 medium zuchinni chopped

5-6 garlic cloves, quartered

2 tbs garlic powder

4-6 tbs olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

frozen gluten free pie crust, thawed ( i like the ‘immaculate’ brand-actually it’s sold at target!)


2 cups almond milk

1/2 c. white or wheat flour (or for a gluten free option use 1/4 to 1/2 cup of cornstarch dissolved in water to create a paste then add to milk)

2 tbs garlic powder

1 vegetarian bullion cube

salt and pepper to taste

how to:

preheat oven to 400 degrees

in a large glass baking dish, or two baking pans, combine butternut squash, sweet potatoes, redskin potatoes, onion, carrots, zucchini, and garlic. cover in olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper and toss together, making sure all the veggies are coated. bake for 45 minutes or until all veggies are soft and starting to brown.


over medium heat, whisk milk, flour, garlic powder, bullion cube, salt and pepper together until free of lumps. allow to thicken over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, or until thick, adding more flour/cornstarch  if needed to thicken into a creamy sauce.

when veggies are done roasting and still warm, pour sauce over veggies and top with thawed pie crust. (if veggies were roasted on two baking sheets, pour all veggies into one glass baking dish first).  i usually need to roll the dough a little further to fit the pan and cover the veggies completely.

bake according to the pie crust directions, until the crust is golden brown. serve warm!

yes. it is as good as it looks...... even better.

ah. sweet comfort.
