No Fail Pot Pie

Sometime last year I had the most epic fail in the kitchen. I'm talking about the ultimate fail. I spent 3 hours creating from absolute scratch a pot pie and it took me 3 whole seconds to drop that shit on the floor. If y'all have ever spent 3+ hours in the kitchen with 3 pets and a child, you can understand just how unsalvageable that dish was. Before I even processed what had happened my dog, Topa, was all over the feast I presented to her. I can't lie to y'all I cried for a minute and this is the first time I've made a pot pie since. I really needed to right my wrong here. Also, my son wouldn't stop suggesting that I make pot pie for literally every prompt so far for this year's Vegan MoFo.

Oh yeah, I dropped the damn thing because I was trying to maneuver the entire thing out of the cast iron for a photoshoot. So it's fair to say that I righted two wrongs this go round: 1) I actually got to eat it this time; and 2) I had a successful photoshoot this time. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see adorable Topa hoping for a repeat dropping of the pot pie.


2 tbsp coconut oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 medium carrots, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
1 bunch of kale, roughly chopped
1/4 c brown rice flour
3 c veggie broth
1 1/2 c white beans
salt and pepper, to taste


1/2 c plant milk
1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 c brown rice flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
salt and pepper, to taste
3 tbsp cold coconut oil
1 tbsp minced rosemary
1 tbsp minced thyme
3 tbsp minced fresh green onion

  1. Preheat to 350
  2. Whisk up the milk and acv and set aside for 5 minutes then pop in the fridge until it's time to make the biscuits.
  3. Cook up your onion and carrot til tender in your fave pot that can go in the oven too - I used my cast iron.
  4. Add garlic, thyme and rosemary and give it all stir. Add kale and cook until your kale is cooked down and a bit wilted. 
  5. Sprinkle in your 1/4 cup brown rice flour and stir until it's all coated. 
  6. Mix in your broth and bring to a boil. 
  7. Reduce heat and let that shit get thick. 
  8. Stir in beans and salt and pepper.
  9. Be like a cat and make the biscuits: mix all the dry ingredients together. Use your fingers to massage in the cold coconut oil.
  10. Add in your milk mixture and stir until combined.
  11. Top the filling with the dough and bake for 30.
