Ingredients: Crafting a Symphony of Flavors

Double Recipe Easy Vegan Pie Crust

To commence this culinary adventure, prepare a flaky, melt-in-your-mouth pie crust that will serve as the perfect vessel for the rich filling. Follow these simple steps for a double recipe of our Easy Vegan Pie Crust:

  1. Chill vegan butter and shortening for 30 minutes.
  2. In a food processor, pulse together flour, sugar, and salt until well combined.
  3. Add cold butter and shortening, processing until the mixture reaches a coarse texture.
  4. With the processor running, incorporate 3-4 tablespoons of ice water until the dough clumps together.
  5. On a floured surface, roll the dough into a 12-inch circle and transfer it to a pie plate. Gently press and trim the edges.
  6. Use immediately or refrigerate until needed. Double the recipe for two crusts.


Now, let’s dive into the heart of our Vegan Pot Pie— the luscious filling that promises a symphony of flavors. Gather the following:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 cups frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, corn, green beans, peas)
  • 1 large russet potato, chopped into small pieces
  • 8 ounces vegan “chicken” or baked tofu, cut into pieces (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Crafting the Vegan Pot Pie Masterpiece

Step 1: Pie Crust Perfection

Before delving into the delectable filling, ensure your pie crust is ready. Whether you opt for our homemade version or a store-bought vegan pie crust, this crucial foundation sets the stage for an unforgettable Vegan Pot Pie experience.

Step 2: Sautéing Brilliance

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil to create the aromatic base of your pot pie. Sauté chopped onion and minced garlic for 5 minutes until they achieve a delightful softness.

Step 3: Flour Power

Sprinkle all-purpose flour over the sautéed onion and garlic, stirring vigorously for 2 minutes. This floury infusion sets the stage for the creamy consistency of your pot pie filling.

Step 4: Liquid Harmony

Slowly whisk in vegetable broth and unsweetened almond milk, creating a luscious, velvety base. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for approximately 10 minutes, allowing it to slightly thicken.

Step 5: Veggie Extravaganza

Introduce the star players—frozen mixed vegetables, diced russet potato, and, if you desire an extra protein kick, vegan “chicken” or baked tofu. Sprinkle in salt to taste and let this flavorful medley simmer for an additional 15 minutes, ensuring the potato achieves a delectable tenderness.

Step 6: Pie Assembly

Preheat your oven to 375°F and lightly grease a 9-inch pie dish. Pour the sumptuous filling into the awaiting pie dish, covering it with your chosen pie crust. Seal the edges with a gentle press and create steam-release slits on the crust’s surface.

Step 7: Golden Perfection

Bake your Vegan Pot Pie for 15-20 minutes, or until the crust achieves a golden hue that hints at the flavorful perfection within. Allow the pie to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
