Here’s a quick and easy recipe found on epicurious.com (slightly altered) for a classic vegetarian Pot Pie.

+ 1½ teaspoon mixed dried herbs
+ 1 cup of frozen peas, thawed
+ 1 cup canned vegetable broth
+ 1 cup dry white wine (Ogle Heritage)
+ 1 tablespoon cornstarch
+ 1 box of refrigerated Biscuits (you can make your own out of scratch for a more fresh taste, in this blog I’m being as simple as I can)
Preheat oven to 425
- Sauté the onions with butter
- Place cut carrots, potatoes, red bell pepper, and mushrooms in a heavy large baking pan. Add Olive Oil, mixed dried herbs, and minced garlic and toss to coat.
