A vegetarian friendly version of one of the ultimate comfort food dishes – pot pie. These mini vegetarian pot pies are perfect for chilly fall or winter evenings.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, quartered
  • 6 ounces mushrooms chopped (button and/or shitake)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 rutabaga, chopped in 1/4″ pieces (Can sub a potato)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2-3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Dash of salt and black pepper
  • 14 ounce container of puff pastry


  1. Two to three hours before you plan to make this dish, put the puff pastry into the fridge to thaw.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. In a large stock pot, melt the butter. Add the onions, carrots, and mushrooms. Stir and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent and mushrooms begin to shrink.
  4. Stir in the minced garlic and cook another minute. Add the rutabaga, peas, and celery and stir. Let cook another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle flour over the vegetables in the pot and stir to coat. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring to a gentle simmer. Let pot simmer for 7-10 minutes. The liquid in the pot should begin to thicken.
  6. Stir in the oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper. Allow to simmer another 1-2 minutes and turn off the heat.
  7. Arrange 3 or 4 small ramekins onto a baking sheet. Cut the puff pastry into squares that are the diameter of your ramekins.
  8. Evenly divide the vegetable filling between each of the ramekins. Top with a sheet of puff pastry. Poke 4 small holes into the middle of the puff pastry to allow steam to escape while cooking.
  9. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until filling is bubbly and the puff pastry is golden brown.
