Cold air brings about the want and craving for that ultimate comfort food. That warm and filling food with a creamy sauce, and maybe a crust on top that is destined to just fill you up and put a big grin on your face. In this case, a Veganomicon Potpie….
The Cauliflower and Mushroom Potpie with Black Olive Crust (pg. 161) is actually the first time i’ve ever made a potpie. I had a pound of cauliflower in the fridge just waiting to be used, and i thought this would be the perfect recipe for it. It took about an hour and the prep was a bit much, but it was absolutley worth it.
There was a lot of steps in it, but it was kind of fun to tell you the truth. And though it took a bit over an hour to make, i guarantee you the taste was worth it! The cauliflower and mushrooms were nice and soft inside and the sauce was creamy and delicious! Very well seasoned, i might add, by tarragon, thyme, and marjoram.
Besides the mushrooms, my favorite part of it might have to be the crust though. It had the texture kind of like the top of a biscuit and the olives in it worked oddly enough. Its time consuming and a bit of a mess to clean up, but if you have the time on a cold evening then i would definatley recommend making this!
