Fitmommy: I haven't made the soup yet, but here is the recipe I printed out to try:
And here is the pot pie recipe I use below. There is no crust recipe included so I use the crust from vegan dad (I do not follow the rest of his recipe for the pot pie though). The crust is AMAZING!! My non-veg husband thinks it's the best pot pie crust he's ever tasted.
And here is the pot pie recipe, copied from a thread on mothering:
"Certainly! It's from The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook, my favorite cookbook. It's kind of alot of work, but so worth it. If you need a pie crust recipe to go with it, let me know. I use a basic one made with WW pastry flour.
TOFU POT PIE
Make a pie crust, enough for a 2 crust pie. Bake the bottom shell at 400 for 10-15 minute, just until slightly browned on the edges.
Combine in a paper bag:
1/2 C flour
2 T nutritional yeast flakes
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Add 4 Cups frozen and thawed tofu cut into 1/2-3/4" cubes. Shake to cover cubes.
Saute the cubes in 1/4 C oil until lightly browned. Then add:
1 C chopped onions
1 C chopped celery
1/2 C chopped carrots
1 1/4 C fresh or frozen peas
Saute until onions are limp then add:
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp soy sauce
Put this mixture in the partially baked shell and cover with Golden Gravy (recipe at end). Cover with 2nd pie crust, poke top crust and bake at 400 for 30 minutes, or until top is golden.
1/2 C nutritional yeast flakes
1/4 C flour
1/3 C oil
1 1/2 C water
2 T soy sauce
3/4 tsp salt
pinch of pepper
Toast the yeast and flour until you can start to smell it. Add the oil and stir while it bubbles, and turns golden brown. Add the water, still stirring with a whisk, until it thickens and is like gravy. Stir in soy sauce, salt and pepper.
When I make this I usually add potatoes in small cubes and green beans, I think the peas get way too mushy but they'd probably be OK if you added them right before baking and didn't saute' first. This makes a really tall and hearty pie - my family of 3 usually eats it for 3 meals if we have it with salad. Also, we have a fun tradition with this meal - when I make it I tell dd and she's excited all day because she can't wait until dinner so she can see which design I put on the crust - sometimes a heart, or a sun, or a moon, or a letter of the alphabet."
