This low carb vegan mushroom pot pie is full of flavour. A flaky low carb vegan pastry covers creamy mushrooms. Filling, comfort food for a cold evening.
A gluten free vegan pot pie that is high in fiber mainly due to the pastry ingredients. Each pot pie is 10g net carbs each, making it more low carb then keto.
Although the pastry has a slight flaky and buttery texture to it, I found it similar to a whole wheat pastry in taste. That's probably partly due to the psyllium husk powder.
Types of mushrooms
We used regular brown mushrooms for the filling but try a combination of different mushrooms for a rich pie filling. Fresh or dry will work but if you are using dry, soak them in water before use to bring them back to life.
How to make vegan mushroom pot pie
We used oat fibre for added texture to the pastry recipe but this can be replaced with ground flaxseed or omitted. Vegan butter is used but we have not yet tried it with oil.
The pastry needs to be made before the filling and since there is a degree of chilling time, you can make the filling in between rolling out the pastry.
Green beans are added to the mushrooms but you could use another low carb vegetable or omit them. Extra mushrooms are always a great option!
For the creamy vegan sauce in the filling we have used nutritional yeast, vegetable stock and almond milk.
Add brandy or red wine to the mushroom filling for a rich flavour.
The pastry can be made ahead and kept in the fridge for 2 days before using.
We made this recipe in small ramekins for individual pot pies but you could use a large dish for the whole recipe.
