Hello hello everyone and happy happy hump day!
It’s been a fabulous week here, with temperatures rising up just enough to finally leave the coats at home. Plus, most schools are out here this week, which means empty trains and a nice, quiet commute.
I have to admit that I’ve been trying to enjoy the weather, spending less time in the kitchen and more time outside whenever possible.
During the winter, I feel like I can hole myself up and cook for hours on end, but when it starts to get a little warmer, it’s harder for me to want to stay inside.
However, the recipe I’m sharing today is well worth missing the gorgeous weather and staying in the kitchen for a bit–trust me. I’m actually really excited to share today’s recipe with you because it’s amazing. Seriously–this is the kind of recipe you’ll want to save and make again and again.
When I originally had the idea for these cute little pot pies, I was pretty excited to make them. I raced out and bought my ingredients…which then sat in my fridge for about a week, unused.
While I loved the concept of these pot pies, I kept putting off the task of actually making them because I thought it was going to be a lot of work.
I was totally wrong, though.
These mini pot pies are actually really simple to make and 100% worth it. They’re also perfect for meal prep, since you can whip up a batch of these and enjoy them all week long.
Chickpeas are high in fiber and protein, making them a great substitute for the “chicken” in traditional chicken pot pie.
This recipe also features tons of other veggies, amping up the fiber and micronutrient content even more. Celery, potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, and peas are all included in each flavorful bite.
If, like me, you want to minimize prep time for this recipe so you can get out there and enjoy the beautiful spring weather, you can also make this into a single chickpea pot pie instead of making mini versions.
This cuts down on the time requirement quite a bit. You can simply use a pre-made pie crust, spread your batter onto the bottom, and top it with another crust.
However you decide to make this delicious chickpea pot pie, you’re guaranteed to love it! If you give this yummy recipe a try, leave me a comment and let me know what you think! I’d love to hear your thoughts 🙂
