Veggie Pot Pie
Serves 6 people

Pie crust

  • .75 lbs. all-purpose flour
  • .375 lbs. buttter
  • .25 tsp salt
  • Ice water as needed

    Method:
    Cut butter into flour and add water as needed until dough formed. Roll dough out to one sixteenth of an inch and cut into circles (approximately 5 inched across) enough to cover pie dish with 3/4 inch crust hanging over.

    Sauce

  • .5 qt chix stock
  • 3 oz roux
  • 1/8 cup goat cheese
  • Lemon juice to taste
  • Salt/pepper

    Method:
    Bring stock to a boil and add roux (equal parts chicken stock and cream). In a blender, add goat cheese, lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.

    Blanched vegetables in salted water

  • ½ cup fava beans
  • ½ cup english peas
  • 1 bunch asparagus

    Other vegetables

  • 3 tbs. wilted spinach with minced shallots
  • 1 lb. braised oyster mushroom
  • Six medium sized cooked fingerling potatoes
  • Six medium sized roasted cippolini onions
  • One bunch chopped chives

    Assembly:
    Fill pie dish with desired amount of vegetable mixture (approximately 3/4 of the way to the top of the pie dish). Place the pie dough cover on top of the pise dish and firmly press to the sides of the dish.

    Wash the top and side of the pie dough with egg wash (this will help with the browning of the crust). Pre-heat oven at 375 degrees. Cooking time is between 12 to 14 minutes.

    Accompanying salad

  • One bunch fresh arugula
  • One small red onion
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 3 oz. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
