Meatless Monday with Vegan Soy-free and Gluten-free Pot Pie

Welcome to the Miratel blog for our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share series. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

Comfort food is something everyone loves, especially during these never-ending colder months and you can still have these culinary blankees in a vegan form with minimal fuss. On the menu tonight is a twist on a perennial favourite, as we’re making vegan pot pie. This recipe comes courtesy of One Green Planet and it’s also soy-free and gluten-free too. You may be thinking that it couldn’t also taste amazing but you’d be wrong – it’s delicious. It does require a bit of effort but it’s not difficult and well-worth it. Let’s get cooking.

For the filling (makes 4 servings)

  • 1 large potato, peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces

  • 1 large carrot, peeled and chopped fine
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped fine
  • 1 medium onion, chopped fine
  • 1 large shittake mushroom or 4-5 white mushrooms, chopped
  • About 3/4 cup chopped broccoli florets (optional)
  • 1/3 c . frozen peas
  • 1/3 c. frozen corn
  • 4-6 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 1 Tbsp Corn Starch (or potato starch)
  • 1-2 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 2 c. water or vegetable broth
  • Black pepper, to taste

For the crust

  • 3/4 c. Amaranth flour
  • 3/4 c. White Rice flour
  • 1/4 c. + 2 Tbsp Potato Starch
  • 1 Tbsp Arrowroot
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut Oil (at room temperature)
  • 3 Tbsp Canola oil (or some other neutral oil)
  • 1.5 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2.5 Tbsp cold water (or more, see below)
  • Olive oil (optional – to brush over the top of the crust)

Directions:

  1. To make the filling: Sauté potato, carrot, celery, onion, corn, mushroom, broccoli, peas, and garlic in a medium pot until softened. Add water or broth and whisk in corn starch. Add bay leaf, oregano, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes and heat, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened and bubbling. Remove from heat, remove the bay leaf, and fill your serving dishes with 1/4 of the mixture in each.
  2. To make the dough: Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, stir together Amaranth, White Rice flour, potato starch, salt, and Arrowroot. Add in coconut oil, canola oil, apple cider vinegar, and water and mix with a fork or your hands until a cohesive dough ball forms. If necessary you can add a bit more water or amaranth to make it more wet or dry, as needed.
  3. Roll the dough out on a smooth clean surface into a 1/4 inch sheet. Cut out circles slightly larger than your serving dishes. Using a wide spatula, transfer your dough circles onto the top of your filled serving dishes. Gently press your finger around the edge to create a wave, if desired. Brush a thin coat of olive oil over the top of the crust and bake at 350° for 15-25 minutes, checking every few minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn, until surface is slightly cracked and a light golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
  4. Serve with a lightly dressed green salad using the vinaigrette of your choice.
