TOP RECIPE: Vegetarian Pot Pie

This week’s top recipe was originally posted on HomeShuling, who also gave us some great Shabbat (or even not-Shabbat) kitchen shortcuts this week.

“I made up the recipe from a combination of other recipes, including Moosewood Restaurant New Classics, and Deborah Madison’s Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, but the final outcome was mostly influenced by what I happened to have on hand in the kitchen. I think you could make the filling out of just about any vegetable combination. If I make it again, I’ll try cubes of frozen tofu in place of the beans.”
  • One Trader Joe’s Pie Shell, defrosted and placed in pie pan according to directions
  • olive oil for sauteeing
  • one onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • one stalk of celery, diced
