Vegetarian Pot Pie

Pot pie, this dish is prepared with vegetables or chicken/meat served with a pastry topping, while some pie goes just for a pot without no pastry.Pot pie is usually refers to a type of meat pie with flaky puff pastry crust.Its been ages i had pot pie, finally i prepared a vegetarian pot pie for this month's Home Baker's Challenge, a monthly baking event where we bake varieties of baked goodies, the host of this month is Saraswathi of Sara's Kitchen, she suggested both pop overs and pot pies for this month's challenge.Initially i planned to prepare the sweet pot pie which goes for bananas and chocolates, but finally i dropped my plan and simply prepared this mixed vegetable pot pie for our dinner.

Mixed Vegetable pot pie

Vegetarian pot pie can be prepared quickly if you have puff pastry at home, just saute couple of mixed vegetables,later cook them with vegetable stock,milk and flour. Your vegetable filling is readynow,just cover the filling by a puff pastry and bake it, your pot pie is ready to be served. Actually i went for a mixed vegetable filling with potatoes,cherry tomatoes, radish, mushrooms,french beans .When served warm, this vegetarian pot pie makes a complete meal as this pie is loaded with vegetables. If you want a non vegetarian version, just add chicken or meat to this same vegetable pot pie and feed easily everyone at home if you have meatoholics at home.Sending to Bake Fest guest hosted by Nalini.

Yumm... Isnt the sauce inside the pie similar to the white sauce in pasta... But a great idea to use pastry sheet to cover it and make it a pie...
