Savory Mushroom Pot Pie

By Chuck Underwood @brandnewvegan

If you love mushrooms - this Savory Mushroom Pot Pie is the recipe for you.

Imagine a rich, savory stew of mushrooms, potatoes, carrots, celery, and gravy, and then top it with a hot piece of homemade cornbread.

Yeah, it's like that - only it tastes a million times better than I could ever describe.  And did I mention it's perfect for the cooler fall temperatures or even that Holiday table?

No fancy ingredients, just real food that everyone already has in their cupboard.

You're going to love this one.

I first published this recipe way back in 2015, and honestly had forgotten just how GOOD it was! I made it last night to reshoot the photos and my oh my, I couldn't quit sampling it on the stove.

A added a few substitutions from the original recipe. I used a whole pound of Portobello Mushrooms, and instead of chopping up the carrots I just added a frozen bag of mixed veggies, like peas, carrots, corn, and green beans.

I wanted to post a Holiday recipe this week, and I think this would be perfect. It made enough to fill 2 of those baking dishes you see in the photo, which are perfect for individual servings, and then an entire 8x8 baking dish as well.

Note: Those baking dishes are "A Dash of That" Oval Ceramic Baking Dishes and are 0.6 qt I found at Fred Meyers.

The Stew

Saute a few cloves of garlic and about a cup of chopped onions in your favorite soup pan or Dutch oven along with a ¼ cup of veggie broth to keep them from sticking.

Then add in 16oz of your favorite mushrooms. Now pour in ¼ cup of Low Sodium Soy Sauce and let that come to a simmer.  

This smell alone will have everyone running to the kitchen to see what you're doing....guaranteed. 

Add the chopped celery, and a diced potato. And then add either some chopped carrots, or a 10 oz bag of frozen mixed veggies (the peas, corn, carrots, and green bean combination are perfect).

Sprinkle in the dried Thyme, Sage, Rosemary, and Pepper.

Now stir in 1 tsp of Worcestershire Sauce (there are vegan versions available) and 1 tablespoon of tomato paste (or about 3 tablespoons of diced tomatoes)

Mix well so all the spices are mixed in, and then sprinkle in ¼ cup of flour. Now pour in 1 ¼ cups of Low Sodium Veggie Broth and let it thicken.


The Cornbread

For the Cornbread batter, I used my Simple Vegan Cornbread Recipe. 

Just prepare the batter as directed, and then layer a 15" x 10" baking dish with the stew and pour the cornbread batter on top.

Note: Alternatively, you can use 2 of the 0.6 qt individual baking dishes I mentioned earlier along with an 8x8 glass baking dish. I added just enough batter to completely cover the individual baking dishes and then spooned what was left over the 8x8.

Bake for 30 minutes in a 350° F oven or until the cornbread is golden brown.

I constantly hear how people think we deprive ourselves by being Vegan or Plant-Based. I have to laugh - because we are anything but deprived and with every dinner I make - I prove them wrong.

Real food, with real ingredients, that taste amazing, with no added fats, oils, cholesterol, or chemicals.

That's what this site is all about.

Good healthy food.
