Vegan Tofu Vegetable Pot Pie...Yum

While browsing my favorite recipe websites,  I spotted a link to Vegan Tofu Pot Pie that looked amazing!  I figured I could make it on the weekend, freeze it prior to baking, and then bake it for a lovely Valentines Day dinner.  I only need to purchase some sage, thyme and tofu, otherwise I had all the basic ingredients in the kitchen.

I went to work right away assembling the ingredients (see the links for the full recipe).

Basically chopped everything up and cooked the tofu first, then replaced the tofu with vegetables and added the sauces, nutritional yeast, flour, soy sauce, sage, and thyme.  It smelled delicious and was hard not to eat this right away.

After that was done I started on the crust.  It took 1 stick of vegan butter, flour and cold water.  This is not a low-fat recipe.

It took some elbow grease to come together into a dough, then shaped it into circular crusts to fit over the veggie mixture in a bowl.

Yes these are cereal bowls that I used.  No small servings allowed in this house.

 Since it was for Valentines day I added the heart cutout.

Then it went straight into the freezer to wait for Valentines Day. On Valentines day, I took it out of the freezer and let them thaw before baking.  

There wasn't anything left behind in the bowls.
