Winter Root-Vegetable Pot Pie
Why This Recipe Works
For our winter root vegetable pot pie recipe, we used our chicken pot pie recipe as a starting point, omitting the chicken and adding a variety of vegetables and seasonings to flesh out the filling. We decided that potatoes added necessary heft to our vegetable pot pie recipe. Small Red Bliss potatoes won tasters over with their creamy texture and subtle flavor, and we favored butternut squash over other types of winter squash because it is the easiest to peel and dice. Tasters preferred parsnips to turnips, and peas were a must for their bright color and sweet flavor.
