Now that we are a healthy way into September, there is an audible, collective murmur of Fall. Sweaters are rediscovered, thoughts meander to butternut squash, and a certain crispness can be felt in the air. Elsewhere at least. Here in jolly old Texas, the slow transition to Fall can thus far only be detected in 70 degree mornings and freak thunderstorms. While this doesn’t send me running for my sweaters, it does not stop me from somewhat instinctive culinary reactions to the changing season.
This vegetarian pot pie was a favorite of ours growing up, and is perfectly suited to cool Autumn evenings. The richness of the crust and gravy, the hearty yet healthy filling are equally enjoyed by vegetarians and carnivores.
Wishing a lovely and enjoyable (nearly) Fall weekend to you all, my darlings!
