Gardein Chick'N Pot Pie

For the past week (or two), I've been jonesing for a pot pie. Yesterday morning when I woke up I saw that Boise had received the most snow fall on record since 2002 in an 18 hour period. There was a snow day for all, my car got stuck in the snow and it was a fabulous wintry day. The pot pie was a definite for dinner and I am so pleased I decided to make it. It was delicious!


Vegan Pot Pie:

What you'll need:

1.5 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups diced onion; about 2 medium onions
1 cup celery; about 2 sticks
1 teaspoon minced garlic
4 tablespoons organic all-purpose flour
1-10oz bag frozen peas
1-10oz bag frozen carrots
2 cups strong vegetable broth
2 cups diced “Gardein” chicken scallopini

1 package Pillsbury pie crust
Melted vegan butter as needed

What to do:

~Using a small stock pot, heat oil and sauté onion and celery until translucent.
~Add garlic and sauté two minutes more.
~Add flour and stir with a wooden spoon until well incorporated.
~Pour in stock and stir.
~Simmer until filling has thickened.
~Season with salt and pepper to taste.
~Add remaining vegetables and Gardien and stir.

~Roll out pie crust and cut it about 1/2 an inch larger than the ramekin you are using. Rub top side of crust with a little melted butter. Place filling in ramekin and top with pie crust.


~Bake in pre-heated 420° oven for 15-20 minutes until crust is golden brown. Makes 4 oz. pies.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
