A Healthy Wholewheat Veggie Pot Pie

Healthy wholewheat veggie Pot pie recipe

Pot pie is a baked pie recipe, which is filled with loads of veggies and covered with whole-wheat or flaky pastry.  Easy to make and  healthy, these are a perfect and wholesome dish for the cold winter nights.

The top crust can be made flaky with refined flour or a bit dense and chewy with wholewheat. Since I like whole grain in my baking recipes, I baked this pot pie with whole-wheat pastry which was similar to a baked wheat biscuit texture.

Vegetable Pot pies are a delicious comfort food, made with the seasonal fresh veggies. These can be can be created in individual pots or as whole pie in a single serving dish, as I did. I used egg less Mayonnaise instead of white sauce to reduce the time further.

Rolled out dough

Ingredients for the Crust;

  • 1 cup of wholewheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp. Milk

Method: Take wholewheat flour in a big vessel and mix with salt. Add oil and rub the flour with fingers to make it resemble breadcrumbs. Make a well and pour the milk into it. Gently mix the whole flour using a fork. Knead to make a hard dough. Make two balls and use one for lining the bottom of the pot pie.

Roll out one of the balls into thin circle and line a round pie dish with it. Prick the dough with a fork. Bake it at 190°C for 8 minutes.

Roll out the other ball and cut into stripes using a sharp knife and keep aside.

Cheesy cover

A thick glassware is good for baking such pies in a convection or oven. Take out the baked pie crust from the oven and sprinkle a little cheese over it. Pour all the sauteed veggies and Mayonnaise mix over this.

Melting moments…

The creamy and crusty layers of healthy wholewheat veggie pot pie is ready to dig in.

Notes;

  • Pot pies with flaky crust made with refined flour are delicious and very festive.
  • Make white sauce using milk, refined flour and butter instead of Mayonnaise while mixing the veggies.
  • Substitute any veggie of your choice, cauliflower, peas, carrots goes well with it.
  • I kept my crust a bit thick to get the wholewheat biscuit taste in my pot pie. But my son did not like this healthy version, he prefers flaky and fluffy pot pies :(
  • Roll the pastry crust thinner and bake it for extra few minutes to get a crisp and crunchy bottom.
