However, I made this pot pie with simple ingredients that I easily found in my kitchen pantry and refrigerator.
I have tried few versions of this and after finally getting my family’s approval here I am to share this vegan pot pie recipe with you all.

I have used these easily available ingredients which you may buy from any grocery store. However, I have provided links to few of them here for your convenience.

- Vegetable broth – I used a store bought one but you use any of your choice. Even a homemade vegetable broth would taste delicious and healthier.
- Cornstarch – I used it instead of flour to thicken the gravy a bit. You may use flour also but for this particular recipe cornstarch tasted better for us.
- Chickpea flour – It is high in protein and fiber. It’s a whole grain and a better substitute for processed flour. This also adds a bit more nutrition to this recipe.
- Whole wheat flour – I used this to bind the biscuits a bit better while baking since they get a lot of moisture because of the gravy at the bottom.
- Nutritional yeast – this gives a nice smooth nutty and cheesy flavor to the entire recipe.
How to make Vegan Pot Pie with Chickpea Flour Biscuits
Firstly, I combined all the ingredients for pot pie in a Dutch oven and coked on the stove top until it starts to thicken.
Secondly, I combined all the biscuit ingredients in a mixing bowl and made a thick dough like batter.
Once, the pot pie was thick enough, I dropped the biscuits on the top of it with the help of a cookie scoop.
Thereafter, I placed the Dutch oven in the middle rack of the oven and baked it for 25 minutes.
Afterwards, I turned off the oven and took it out. I served it immediately.
My entire family was so happy and enjoyed this warm winter dinner heartily. I was happy with the fact that I had minimum after dinner clean up and got extra time to spend with the kids on a weeknight.
Therefore, by now you must have realized that this recipe is very simple and requires minimum steps. It’s a perfect weeknight dinner recipe along with being a crowd pleaser as well.
- I would recommend to keep all the ingredients ready so its easy for you to put everything together quickly.
- Make sure the batter is thick like a dough. Even if you feel that the batter is slightly dry to mix do not add more than recommended milk. The batter will be mixed eventually and you may use your hands if needed. If you add more milk to it the biscuits would turn out to be soft since it gets moisture from the veggies also while baking.
- The consistency of the vegetable pot pie before dropping biscuits should be on the thicker side and not watery or overly runny.
I am sure you must be drooling over this veggie pot pie dish. Its nutritious and healthier too and made with mostly whole foods.
They taste best when served immediately. However, the leftovers can be refrigerated for 3-4 days. Simply warm it up in the oven or microwave before consuming.
Yes, I made it oil free and with healthy whole food ingredients. For the biscuits I used whole wheat flour and chickpea flour which are higher in protein and fiber. Therefore, this dish is healthier and nutritious comparatively along with the same old comforting flavors.
Yes, I have personally tried with both and worked equally good in this recipe.
I would recommend making it the same day in fact to get started an hour before serving to get the best results. However, you may make vegetable pot pie and freeze it for couple of day. Do not add cornstarch in that case. When ready to use, simply warm it up on the stove add and when it defrosts, add cornstarch and then cook until it thickens a bit. Then follow the rest of the process.
Yes, absolutely. Make the batter as per the instructions in the recipe card and then drop the biscuits in a prepared cookie sheet. Bake it for 15 minutes or until golden brown in color at the top. Enjoy it with jam or vegan butter.
Yes, absolutely. I have explained it in the notes under recipe card.

Vegan Pot Pie with Chickpea Flour Biscuits
For the pot pie
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 cup chopped gold potatoes (peeled)
- 1 1/2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt or as per taste
- 1 tsp crushed black pepper
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (tetra pack)
For the biscuits
- 1/2 cup chickpea flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp unsweetened coconut milk (tetra pack)
- Preheat oven at 400-degree Fahrenheit. In a Dutch oven combine all the ingredients for pot pie (except coconut milk). Stir and place it on the stove top. Turn it on at high flame and let it cook stirring at intervals to make sure it does not stick to the bottom. Once it starts to boil add coconut milk and stir nicely. Let it cook at medium-high heat until it almost thickens but not completely.
- In a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients for biscuits and make a thick stiff batter almost like a dough.
- Once the pot pie is a bit thick turn off the flame. With the help of the cookie scoop drop the biscuits on the pot pie spreading it evenly. Do not let the biscuits drown into the pot pie. They should be placed at its top.
- Now, place the Dutch oven in the middle rack of the oven and bake it for 25 minutes. The biscuits will become crisp. Take it out and garnish with your choice of herbs and serve immediately.
- While making the biscuit dough mix all its dry ingredients very well. Just when you are ready to turn off the pot pie then mix the coconut milk into the biscuit batter and immediately drop them on top of the pot pie.
- The consistency of the pot pie before baking would be sticky and will have gravy. It should not very dry and neither very runny.
- This biscuit recipe makes about 8 biscuits and the serving size is 2 per person.
- If you do not have Duct oven then simply cook the pot pie in a stockpot or in any pan of your choice and pour it in a baking dish. Then drop the biscuits on its top and bake it as per the instructions.
- This recipe taste best when served immediately. Leftovers can be refrigerated for about 3-4 days. Simply microwave or rebake them but the biscuits might not be crisp again. However, this entire recipe would still taste excellent.

Oh wow that looks so good and comforting! I cannot wait to try the chickpea flour bisuits too! This is true comfort food and a must-make for the cooler temperatures!
What a delicious recipe and I love that you did the variation with chickpea flour biscuits! Such a nourishing meal!
This is such a perfect fall meal! I love that everything cooks in one pot, and the biscuits came out with the perfect texture. I’ll definitely put this on the fall dinner rotation.
Marisa F. Stewart says
I bought some chickpea flour for a new dough recipe I’m making and I had quite a bit extra. I saw this recipe and thought — why not? The pot pie turned out delicious!! I really didn’t miss the meat in it at all since there was so much flavor going on. I’ll be making this again – I still have more chickpea flour.
