Easy Veggie Pot Pie recipe – comfort food in a bowl.
If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen me post this recipe on my stories a few weeks ago.
As much as I would love to take credit for this incredible veggie pot pie recipe, all credit goes to Robbie!
In our house, I’m usually the one making and planning the meals 99% of the time.
This is for several reasons: 1) I have a food blog and thus our dinners are planned around that and 2) Robbie usually comes up with slightly too creative dinner ideas that I joke sound like something out of chopped on food network.
It should also be noted that I’m a bit of a control freak and like cooking within my comfort zone for most dinners, so there’s that too 😁
Ingredients to make veggie pot pie
- frozen mixed vegetables (mine was corn, carrot, peas, green beans)
- cream of mushroom soup
- vegetable broth
- 2% milk
- freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese
- refrigerated meatless chick’n strips
- ready to bake biscuits
For New Year’s, Robbie decided that he wanted to do some sort of special meal for us.
He came up with the idea for this veggie pot pie and I was skeptical, but he was the one making dinner so I let him have at it.
I was genuinely surprised at how delicious this was!
Don’t get me wrong, my husband is an amazing cook, I just normally wouldn’t expect to like something that was predominantly sauce based without noodles.
The filling of this veggie pot pie is insanely creamy with a bit of cheese, and uses fresh garlic and onion for flavor and frozen mixed veggies for convenience.
I get all nostalgic eating those frozen mixed veggies that kind of remind me of being a kid.
Once you make the pot pie filling, you will toss it in the oven to bake with the rolls.
We like to bake our rolls separately on a cookie sheet (at the same time that the filling is baking.)
The reason for this is that we love to get those slightly crispy edges on the rolls.
You could totally just put the rolls on top of the pot pie, but they wouldn’t get near as crispy that way.
Once both have finished cooking, just place the rolls on top and it’s time to dig in!
When Robbie first made this recipe, I made him tell me everything in it so that I could write it down in a note on my phone.
I used that note to recreate the recipe myself and it worked perfectly!
I had to guess on the spices as he didn’t measure amounts, but it was spot on!
Robbie’s version included vegetarian chick’n which was delicious.
It’s totally optional, but we love adding it.
If you want “chicken” vegetarian pot pie, just add a little bit of “fake” meat. I love it both ways!
You can use any brand of biscuits, but I personally love the Immaculate brand or the Annie’s organic brand.
They are incredibly flaky and use organic ingredients.
These pictures are making my mouth water.
Last night I had a second helping of this for an evening snack as I just couldn’t stop thinking about it!
Cozy, simple comfort food is the best way to describe this recipe.
We used frozen veggies for convenience, but this pot pie is endlessly customizable.
Potatoes would also be a delicious addition!
I cannot wait to eat leftovers for lunch today!
