Double Duty

Two Is Better Than One!

This is just an idea and it worked for me. I make chicken pot pie although not with cauliflower crust, but with lots of veggies and my QUORN vegetarian chicken pieces. So today I was making a big veggie salad for lunch, and it dawned on me that I was cutting way too many vegetables. So, why not make two dishes while I was at it.

  1. thin sliced carrots
  2. broccoli
  3. cauliflower potatoes are optional BTW
  4. snow peas
  5. green onion sliced thinly
  6. spinach
  7. corn
  8. yellow squash out of my garden

As I chopped away I simply kept on chopping as I did each item. At the end of it all I had ingredients for not only my salad (I added romaine lettuce, of course) but all of the chopped veg I needed for pot pie. I steamed the pie veg and layered that with low sodium cream of broccoli soup and added a bit of parm. cheese. If you are a vegetarian and you use soy products or whey based products, add some c’ken and I like to top with a crust that I make out of Bisquick. You may prefer some type or biscuit dough or pop biscuits too. I like Pillsbury Grand myself. This is a quick healthy dish and sooo good.

Why not let your veggies do Double Duty?
