"Chicken" Pot Pie

I got this recipe from a magazine and changed it gluten free and vegan. I used Beyond Meat Faux Chicken Strips and chopped them finely in a food processor but you could easily use tofu too.

"Chicken" Pot Pie


1 lb faux chicken or tofu
1 cup carrot, sliced
1 cup frozen green peas
1⁄2 cup celery, sliced
1⁄3 cup vegan butter
1⁄3 cup onion, chopped
1⁄3 cup gluten free flour (I used brown rice)
1⁄2 tsp salt
1⁄4 tsp black pepper
1⁄4 tsp celery seeds
1 3⁄4 cup vegan chicken or vegetable broth
2⁄3 cup non-dairy milk
2x 9 in unbaked pie crust (I used Maggie Beer's Gluten Free Pastry)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C.)
In a saucepan, combine chicken, carrots, peas, and celery. Add water to cover and boil for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.
In the saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in butter until soft and translucent. 
Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and celery seed. Slowly stir in chicken broth and milk. 
Simmer over medium-low heat until thick. Remove from heat and set aside.
Place the chicken mixture in bottom pie crust. Pour hot liquid mixture over. 
Cover with top crust, seal edges, and cut away excess dough. 
Make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. 
Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
