Vegetable Pot Pie

Vegetable Pot Pie- is a very easy and healthy dinner that everyone in the family will love! It may sound scary since there are so many ingredients but I will tell you that it is worth it. Don't be scared, it's easy to make. I made this for dinner last night, I actually made enough for two dinners, thinking we would have left overs. Well I should have know that dad was coming to dinner and had seconds and thirds! Which made me happy- since everyone loves it! and because I get to make something else for dinner tomorrow night! (I love cooking!)

Vegetable Pot Pie
2-3 tbsp. olive oil (for cooking)
Small onion- chopped and diced
1/2 cup of canned mushrooms- halves and pieces
3/4 cup of canned or frozen corn
3/4 cup of frozen peas
Small red potato- peeled and chopped
Cup of carrots chopped- 1 1/2 large carrots OR 10 baby carrot sticks
2 1/2 tbsp. of whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. onion powder
dash of garlic
12oz of chicken broth

(Preheat oven to 425*)
1. in large skillet heat oil and cook onions until they are translucent- about 5 minutes
2. add the chopped and washed carrots and potatoes to the skillet and cook- about 8 minutes
3. add in the frozen peas, corn and mushrooms and mix until heated- about 4 minutes
4. add in the salt, onion powder, garlic and flour and chicken brother- let continue to cook for about 3 minutes (keep stirring until somewhat thick)
5. take the crust and line it in the dish, then pour the vegetable mixture into the dish- cover it again with the rest of the puff pastry and bake in the oven at 425* for 30-35 minutes

Enjoy--this low calories, healthy and filling!
Yummy! (Don't expect left overs from this dish, this is definite crowd pleaser)
