A #Pie In A #Pot? ;-)

Hey Everyone! :-)

I'm back with another recipe to share. This one is for all those other lazy cooks out there. :-)

Pot Pie In A Crockpot Ingredients:
6 potatoes washed and cubed
3 carrots peeled and chopped
1 bag frozen peas
1 large onion finely chopped
1 12 oz package sliced button mushrooms
1 zucchini chopped
1 bell pepper chopped
1 head of broccoli chopped or 1 bag of frozen chopped broccoli
1 cup vegetable stock
1 can refrigerated biscuit dough
2 tbsp vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
4 cloves of garlic chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp thyme
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
2 bay leaves
Salt and pepper to taste

Put all the ingredients except the broccoli and biscuit dough in a crockpot and cook on high for 4-6 hours. Remove the bay leaves, add the broccoli, and stir the contents. Cook for another hour or so. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary. Remove the biscuit dough from the can (you know them, they're the kind that pops when you open them) and separate the individual biscuits. Remove the cover of the crockpot and place the biscuits on top of the vegetables in an even layer. Put the whole crock (the ceramic part that sits in the metal part only, not the metal part with the controls) in the oven without the cover and bake according to the directions on the biscuit package.

As always, I prefer my pot pie without meat, but you can add any meat you like. Just please make sure the meat is cooked before you add it to the crockpot because food poisoning sucks. Also, you can of course remove or add any vegetables you like. This recipe is more about a process than about a specific ingredient list. Likewise, you can adjust the seasonings however you like to suit your taste.

Bon appetit! :-)
