Pot pie, the ultimate winter comfort food!
This Vegan Pot Pie recipe is warm, savory and heartening. It is so delicious that even fervent omnivores will like it better than the traditional meat version.
This dish is a meal in itself. However, if you feel the need for a side dish then Roasted Brussels Sprouts are a perfect compliment.
