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.
- thin sliced carrots
- cauliflower potatoes are optional BTW
- snow peas
- green onion sliced thinly
- 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?
