    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 large all purpose potato, peeled and diced
    • 1 large carrot, chopped
    • 295.73 ml vegetable stock
    • 29.58 ml tamari or 29.58 ml other soy sauce
    • 14.79 ml cornstarch, dissolved in
    • 29.58 ml water
    • 14.79 ml olive oil
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 453.59 g firm tofu, diced, frozen and thawed (freezing and thawing optional, but it improves the texture)
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 158.51 ml frozen peas, thawed
    • 78.07 ml frozen corn, thawed

    crust

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook potato and carrot in a pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 10 minutes, drain, rinse and set aside.
    2. 2
      Put stock and tamari in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce to low and whisk in the cornstarch-water mixture, simmer 2-3 minutes, stirring until thickened, remove from heat and set aside.
    3. 3
      Heat the olive oil in a medium-size skillet over medium heat.
    4. 4
      Add the onion, cover and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the onion to the potatoes and carrots and mix in the tofu, corn and peas.
    6. 6
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    7. 7
      For the crust, incorporate the salt into the flour, add the corn oil and with 2 butter knives cut the oil into the flour until crumbly and well incorporated.
    8. 8
      Add the water and mix until it forms a ball. (if it's too crumbly, add water by the tablespoonful until it comes together. different climates affect flour differently.).
    9. 9
      Divide the crust in two and on a lightly floured surface, roll out each ball until it is slightly larger than a 2-quart casserole dish.
    10. 10
      Place one half into the casserole dish, and put the vegetables on top.
    11. 11
      Place the second crust over the vegetables and crimp the edges.
    12. 12
      Bake until the filling is hot and bubbly and the crust is browned, about 45 minutes.
    13. 13
      Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
    14. 14
      p.s. someone asked a question whether to use silken or waterpacked. waterpacked/chinese-style is ideal, but it may still work if all you have is silken. or go ahead and omit the tofu altogether. it's an adaptable recipe.

      Fantastic comfort food with the bonus of being nutritional! Texturizing the tofu through freezing and thawing was a brilliant idea: The tofu flaked like chicken, which was something I was stumped on for years on how to mimic. I made this for Thanksgiving so that my vegetarian friends and I could have something to eat as the rest of my family and friends gorged on a large dead bird. The potpie was well received by all of us "veggies," and even the few intrepid carnivores that tried it swore it tasted like chicken was in it. I will, most definately, make this again with no occassion necessary.

      Very tasty! Only had a problem with crust be a bit to crumbly to roll out, so I added some more water. Next time I might add more veggies. I this recipe is a keeper!

      Awesome recipe that we make often. We've done it with the unfrozen and frozen versions of tofu (depending on whether we remembered to put it in the freezer the night before), and they both work out great. The freezing just gives it a little bit of extra firm/flaky texture. Also, I always add a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch instead of just one.
