Pot Pie with Cauliflower and Greens
We finally had our first cold snap here (cool snap?) and what's great about colder nights is baking things in the oven without feeling guilty that we're causing the A/C to work overtime. This pot pie hit the spot on a recent cool night. Our old standby pot pie recipe is from the Vegetarian Times cookbook. We always tweak the recipe to our liking and this time I really just used the recipe as a guide and went in my own direction but it came out really good. The main veggies were cauliflower and collard greens and Darlene did sort of a rustic topping by putting the dough for the crust on by spoonfuls (see, you can just wing it and call it rustic and it's great). Even though we went back for seconds we still had room for dessert - apple crisp made with apples we picked at an orchard just down the road. Oh, and a little soy cream on the side. Mighta gone back for seconds on this too I think.
