Foodie Friday! Vegetable Pot Pie

I have a confession.  I have not tried this recipe yet.  Or I should say I haven’t tried this form of it yet.  Ya’ll are witnessing an experiment of sorts.

When I was an omnivore, one of my family’s favorite dishes was my chicken pot pie.  I started thinking about how easily this could be made vegan and will try it this weekend.  Here’s the recipe with my anticipated changes.
