Newest bestest food

Tonight I made a delicious pot pie - truly awesome!


7 medium gold potatoes, boiled to tender, smashed, a couple tablespoons of Earth's Best
1 large or 2 medium leeks
2 normal carrots
1/2 small pkg petite peas
nice big bunch of fresh or frozen cut spinach (I think I used about 3.5 big handfulls, stems removed).
diced or crushed garlic (2 cloves or more to desired taste)
1 medium onion diced

1 tsp. garam marsala paste
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp tumeric
couple good dashes of vegan Worcestershire sauce
pinch of salt
pinch of good ground pepper

2 pie crusts (mine were store bought vegan)

Get a pie plate or large shallow bowl and line it with one of the pie crusts. Brush with Earth's Best.

Saute the onion, leek, garlic, spinach, and spices together - adding them together in that order about 2-3 min apart. Dash in the Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.

Add this saute to the potatoes, and mix well. Add in the cooked carrots and frozen peas. Mix a few times so that it's well mixed, but not smashing apart the carrots or peas. Add to pie crust. Brush again with Earth's Best, and add top pie crust. Cut little holes in the pie right in the middle, so you are impressed with how it looks. Bake at 350 for about 45 min. We ate ours plain, but you could do a side of beans, or have it with a nice salad or soup.

Just wanted to add here that after eating one serving of this yummy pie, and having a glass of chocolate rice milk with dinner, I had 3 thin mint cookies and was totally fine. 2 glasses of water later, and I'm ready for bed! It's really getting easier...
