VeganMoFo: Butternut Squash Pot Pie

Nothing says comfort food like a warm pot pie on a cold fall evening. It warms the heart and the soul, and I think my VegFam would agree.

Normally, I would try to say something witty or funny, maybe even punny, but for this pot pie really all I can say is that it is beautiful. It looks beautiful. It tastes beautiful. Hell I may even paint a portrait of it. That's how beautiful.

1 sheet of vegan puff pastry

1 butternut squash, diced
3-4 c oyster mushrooms, sliced
2 celery stalks, sliced
1 large carrot, peeled and sliced
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 and roast butternut squash until it's tender; about 40 minutes or so. 
  2. While the squash is roasting get started on the sauce.

1 onion, diced
1/4 c vegan butter
1 tbsp flour
3/4 c veggie broth
1 tbsp non-dairy milk
2 tbsp white cooking wine
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp rosemary
pepper, to taste
  1. melt the butter in a large heavy bottom pan. When the butter is melted toss in the onion. Cook until just starting to brown. Add in the flour and let coat and cook for 30 seconds or so. Use the wine to deglaze the pan.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients. Cover and let simmer for about 10 minutes. 

Spice Blend:
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried ground mustard
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp celery salt
1/4 tsp parsley
1/8 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne
  1. Blend all the spices together and toss the oyster mushrooms until well coated.
  2. Saute the mushrooms until they start to brown.
  3. In a separate pan saute the carrots and celery. 
  4. Once tender, combine the squash, shrooms, sauce, celery and carrots into 1 casserole dish or 4 smaller dishes. 
  5. Reduce oven from 400 to 375. Top with thawed puff pastry and bake for 20-25 minutes in the oven.

  2. Just thought I would telly you that I am almost happy it is cold outside because this is my favorite winter dish! Just on a side note, I can't find the vegan puff pastry either but I am able to get a vegan whole wheat pie crust that works great too. Thanks for the recipe - we just love it!
