I have a confession. I wasn’t going to post this Vegetable Pot Pie recipe.  Not because I didn’t think it was delicious and that your family would love it.  No, quite the opposite! This is one of my most popular recipes that  my family requests almost on a weekly basis. But I wasn’t going to post it because I was ashamed of how it looked.  I had pot pie embarrassment.

I am not a expert pie maker.  I cannot make perfect crust.    I am not Marie Callender!  What my pot pie lacks in beautiful crust makes up for in taste, and that’s how I feel about this Vegetable Pot Pie Recipe!

I know this Cauliflower Pot Pie is not the most beautiful pot pie you’ve ever seen.  The crust is uneven, it has caved in spots, heck it even has a crack down the middle of the pie.  But goodness gracious, this pot pie is DELICIOUS!  AND EVERY DELICIOUS POT PIE DESERVES A DAY TO SHINE!

So here I am.  After attempting to photograph it 3 times but putting away my camera every single time, I came back to it before the sun went down.   I googled photos of “pot pie” that looked perfect.  They were magazine cover beautiful.  And then I laughed. 

Who am I kidding? I will never make the most beautiful pot pie that has intricate leaf designs cut out of it.  That’s not me.  That’s not my style. I’m Pamela.  I make messy stuffed pepper casserole and blueberry muffins that sometimes fall apart.

And you know what? That’s ok.  And you know what else? My family loves my messy casseroles and crumbly muffins!  I’m a mother of a 6 month old who’s current wake up time is 5:30AM and has separation anxiety when I drop her off at daycare that breaks my heart.  I should be happy I’m even able to make dinner for my family because honestly, I need a nap!  

So whatever.  Cauliflower Pot Pie – take a bow, you beautiful thing!

Easy Vegetable Pot Pie

Let me give you the scoop on this pot pie.  It’s easy to make, and only takes 40 minutes to bake.

We love this vegetarian pot pie in our house.  It’s a good change from the usual chicken pot pie and is instead packed with cauliflower, carrots and peas.   If you’re feeling adventurous you can even give it your own tweak depending what’s in season in the garden.  Sometimes I live on the wild side and add sweet corn to it!

How to Make a Pot Pie

You can make your own pie crust (9 inch) but if you’re busy, save yourself the headache and buy a pack of already made pie crusts in your grocery freezer section.

Now fill the pie crust with your vegetables that you boiled for a few minutes to soften up. I use fresh cauliflower and carrots with frozen peas.  You could even use all frozen vegetables if you want to save some time chopping vegetables.   If you’re using frozen vegetables, you still need to cook them before putting them in the pie crust.

Vegetarian Chicken Pot Pie

You won’t miss the chicken at all in this pot pie recipe, in fact it might be become one of your new favorite dinner recipes!  What makes it so special?  That’s the cream sauce that we’re about to add in!

A pot pie is creamy! It’s comfort food!  A pot pie is never dry! No way!  And this creamy sauce is what dreams are made out of.  It’s made from butter, flour, milk, chicken broth, salt, pepper and celery seeds and is OH SO CREAMY!

Now spoon your cream sauce into the pot pie, making sure you cover all the vegetables.

Add your other pie crust on top, and use a fork to pierce it together.

Add a few holes on top so the steam can escape and place on a cookie sheet.  Why?  Sometimes pot pies will boil over and trust me, you don’t want to clean your oven.  Instead, save yourself the cleanup and use a cookie sheet!
