Creamy and delicious vegan tofu pot pie

Fall is SO close in my neck of the woods, but we are still having pretty warm afternoons. Even though the leaves are filling up my yard, sticking to my dogs, and getting drug into my house on an hourly basis, we haven’t quite said goodbye to summer.

Even still, I am ready to break out my fall decor, diffuse spicy oils, and I even bought my first pumpkin! My menu is changing from light, summer fare to hearty soups, crusty breads, and pot pies. Pot pies? Heck ya! It doesn’t get any more comfort-y on the comfort food scale, and this pot pie recipe is beyond easy.

Does this look familiar? It’s because I have written about this recipe before. But, when I was making this the other day I pulled out my camera and decided to capture some shots that didn’t look like iPhone pictures edited in Instagram. What can I say? My photography has improved at least a little since then!

Sautéing tofu for a vegan pot pie

Who doesn’t love a pot pie? And the nice thing about this recipe is that other than the sauce, everything is customizable. Want to bake tofu instead of sautéing it? Have seitan on hand instead of tofu? It will still be tasty. Technically, you could even use chicken, but that would be stretching my good graces.

Frozen mixed vegetables for vegan pot pieOnly have frozen peas and carrots on hand? (That has NEVER happened to me) Throw them on in!

Pie crust over vegan pot pieMy only real gripe about this recipe is the pie crust. I haven’t done a lot of tinkering with making my own, and it is nearly impossible to find a vegan one in the stores here. Sometimes I get the non-vegan one, and I can stand the way they smell as they are baking. I even made my husband check the stove to make sure we didn’t have a critter in there, and nope. Just a stinky pie crust. Don’t judge me, I never claimed to be normal.

So, any way you slice it (see what I did there?) pot pies should be on your menu this fall. So what is the recipe, again? I thought you’d never ask …
