Provencal Autumn Pot Pies

Pot pies are one of my absolute favorite comfort foods especially for cold, windy nights. This version is topped with flaky puff pastry which is cut and placed on in a matter of seconds. Cover fully, decorate with festive cut outs or do a lattice top but my favorite is full coverage, the more crust the better.

One Year Ago Today Sweet & Sour Seitan, Braised Cabbage and Garlic Roasties

Tender broccoli, zucchini, red potatoes, green beans, dill and fennel in a creamy white bean gravy and topped with crispy, golden brown puff pastry.
