"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."
"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."
"The filling to this was great, but I had problems rolling out the crust; even with additional water it seemed crumbly. I'll probably continue to make this, but use an alternate recipe for the crust."
"Absolutely delicious! We substituted green beans for the frozen peas since that's what we had around. My boyfriend was nervous when I told him I was making a tofu dish, but he ate it up and went back for seconds. Freezing the tofu really does do wonders for the texture, especially for someone who is still uncertain about the stuff. We'll definitely be making this again!"
"this was quite good. i used canned corn instead of frozen, which worked fine. a few changes for next time - i think i'll use refrigerated pie crust (my crust didn't work out so well) and maybe some more cornstarch since the sauce didn't completely thicken...but, it is a definite keeper"
"I'm not vegan but I needed a vegan covered dish to take to someone. I picked this one at random. Made one to give and one to eat and I was super pleased with the result. I'd told my husband in advance that if it wasn't good we were going out for dinner. LOL. Not a problem. We ate at home and enjoyed every morsel. It is a bit labor intensive and in the future I'm going to put it in a dish with only a top crust. The filling is excellent and I thought two crusts were just a bit much although it made a nice presentation. Great dish."
"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!"
"This was delicious. Not too hard to make either. It truly reminded me of chicken pot pie. This will definitely be a family favorite. "
