Sally’s Turkey Pot Pie (GF)

Pot pie is one of the most comforting foods. All that delicious gravy wrapped around meat and vegetables tucked into a flaky, buttery crust. You pretty much cover all of the food groups in one dish. Our Business Analyst, Sally, came up with this version after trying our new pie crust mix and I thought it better find its way into your lineup before Thanksgiving. It’s a perfect solution to leftover turkey. Like pot pie, but want it to be vegetarian? Try this recipe from Flourishing Foodie.
Bonus– This is a fabulous meal to put together unbaked and freeze to bring to someone who could use some comfort food. Whether home bound from illness, grieving or expecting a baby, pot pie is a wonderful way to show how much you care.

Prep Time: 60 minutes
Cook Time: 75 – 85 minutes
Yield:9 – 12 servings

  • 1 package Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix, prepared and chilled
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 cup diced Onion (150g)
  • 3 cloves minced Garlic (15g)
  • 4 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth
  • 2 Tbsp Cornstarch
  • 2 cups Russet Potatoes, peeled and chopped into 3/4-inch cubes (440g)
  • 1 cup Carrots, peeled and sliced into coins (170g)
  • 1 tsp Poultry Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt, or more to taste
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups roasted Turkey, cut into bite-size pieces (500g)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen Green Beans, chopped into 1-inch pieces (130g)
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh Thyme (3g)
In a deep skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until soft and slightly browned, about 5 – 10 minutes.

Stir in garlic and continue to cook until fragrant, approximately 30 seconds.

Deglaze pan with 3 cups of chicken broth. Bring to a boil and simmer on medium-low heat.

In a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in remaining 1 cup of chicken broth. Slowly pour in the cornstarch slurry into the skillet, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Continue stirring until the cornstarch is incorporated, approximately 3 minutes.

While simmering add potatoes and carrots. Let simmer approximately 10 minutes.

Gently stir in poultry seasoning, salt and pepper.

Once potatoes are tender (about 5 more minutes), remove from heat. Stir in turkey, green beans and thyme. Let filling cool while the crust is assembled.

Remove dough from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature until malleable. Roll 1/2 of chilled dough into a 12-inch circle between two pieces of heavy-duty plastic wrap. Remove top layer of plastic; invert and center dough over a 9-inch nonstick deep dish pie pan or into three 6-inch deep dish pie pans. Press crust into place, then remove remaining plastic wrap. Add filling and spread to fill evenly.

Roll the remaining 1/2 of chilled dough into a 10-inch circle between two pieces of heavy-duty plastic wrap. Remove top layer of plastic; invert and center dough over filling. Press dough into place, then trim, seal and flute the edges. Cut four vents in the top dough using a decorative pattern, if desired.

Transfer the pot pie(s) to the freezer and chill at least 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400°F. Remove the pot pie(s) from the freezer and brush the top crust with egg wash, if desired.

Tent the crust with foil and bake until the crust is golden and the filling is beginning to bubble and has thickened, 1 hour 15 minutes – 1 hour 25 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
