Individual Super-Veggie Pot Pies
Prep time

Total time
Tender veggies in creamy gravy. Buttery crust. Heaven. I have a love affair with things in mini, but if you’d like to prepare a large pot pie, please do! Just fill a 9" glass pie pan and serve in bowls. Otherwise, you’ll need twelve 3" ramekins, or six to eight 4" ramekins.
Serves: 6 servings
Vegetable Pie Filling
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 large carrots, diced
  • 1 cup sweet potato, diced
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 – 4 leaves kale, stems removed, chopped well
  • 1 cup fresh green peas
  • 1 cup chickpeas, cooked (1⁄3 cup dry)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons thyme leaves
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Warm a skillet to medium-high, add coconut oil, onion, celery, carrots, sweet potato, and wine. Saute for 7 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 3 minutes.
  3. While veggies cook, add all sauce ingredients to a blender. Puree until smooth.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, use a fork to combine all crust ingredients until crumbly and starting to stick together.
  5. Add kale, green peas, chickpeas, thyme, and sauce to your skillet, and stir for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and fill ramekins almost to the top with the filling.
  6. If you’re rolling out a crust, roll dough into a ball with your hands, place on a sheet of parchment paper, and top with another piece of parchment.** Roll, then peel back top layer. Cut pieces of dough to cover the entire top of the ramekin. If you’re doing a crumble crust, break up dough with fork and sprinkle over top of filling — cover the entire top.
  7. Bake ramekins for 25 – 30 minutes. Serve warm.
*psst! The heat will compromise the probiotic benefits of the miso a bit — it’s used in this recipe mainly as a tasty seasoning.

**Roll out dough onto parchment, cut, then slide onto a cookie sheet and freeze for 5 minutes. Use an offset spatula to easily lift up crust “disks” to lay on top of ramekins.
