A delicious and comforting vegan pot pie recipe with a half whole grain crust.
Admittedly this vegan chicken pot pie recipe has a long list of ingredients, but trust me, it's worth it. This recipe took a long time for me to get exactly right. If I didn't think it needed the ingredient I wouldn't have put it in.
Prepare the hearts of palm by cutting them in half, slicing half way into the hearts and slide your finger into the slice and pull out the tender middle of the hearts, shred them with your fingers. Put the outside of the hearts in a plastic bag and smash them with a rolling pin to soften them up. Set aside.
In a large heavy pot, saute onions and celery with the butter on medium heat until onions are transparent. In the same pot add hearts of palm and soy sauce and cook about 3 minutes more. Add 3 cups of water, onion and garlic powder, seasoned salt, pepper, potatoes and carrots. Cover and cook on medium heat until potatoes and carrots are almost tender, Add green peas. Then cook until potatoes and carrots are done.
While potatoes and carrots are cooking... in a food processor put chickpeas with liquid, cumin, coriander, turmeric, nutritional yeast and corn starch. Process until liquefied. Pour into the pot with other ingredients and remove from heat.
