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. 


  1. Where do you get vegan puff pastry?

  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!

    1. Becky, you've made my day! Thanks so much for the feedback on the pie crust. I'm so glad you're enjoying the recipe.

  3. I am almost happy that it is cold outside because this is my favorite cold weather meal! Just fyi, I couldn't find the vegan puff pastry either but I use a vegan whole wheat pie crust.

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…

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).

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…
