Easy, Quick And Scrumptious Vegan Chick’n Pot Pie [VIDEO]
The best vegan version of a Chick’n Pot Pie you should try.
This is one of the easiest pot pie recipes I have ever tried. Well, of course if you have a ready made crust, it will be extra easier, but if you want to make the crust from scratch then you can do so with the recipe given below.
Why is it easy? All you have to do is chop everything up and sauté them and then cook with the broth ‘til it thickens before making it into an actual pie. The waiting game starts when you place it in the oven.
Once you take it out of the oven, it will smell like heaven in your kitchen. But wait ‘til you take a bite. You will not even think that you are eating a purely vegan pot pie. It tastes incredibly good. And it is perfect one a cold day. Serve immediately for you to appreciate the warm, saucy and flavorful output of this special vegan recipe.
Check out the recipe below.
