quick + easy veggie pot pie

Okay. So if you are like me, there are some nights that your belly is just craving something warm and comforting for dinner!  This recipe is super healthy, quick, and will satisfy that dreamy desire to indulge in something beyond the green salad that you have had for the past 3 nights in a row!

2 bags of Trader Joes Frozen Vegetable Melange
1 pie crust
3/4 Cup Canned Chickpeas, Undrained, use entire can of liquid
1/8 Teaspoon Cumin
1/8 Teaspoon Coriander
1/8 Teaspoon Turmeric
1/2 Tablespoon Nutritional Yeast
1 Tablespoon Corn Starch

Prepare the 2 bags of vegetable melange according to the package. While the veggies are cooking-
in a food processor put chickpeas with liquid, cumin, coriander, turmeric, nutritional yeast and corn starch. Process until liquefied. Pour into the pot with other ingredients and remove from heat.

Preheat oven at 400 degrees.

Spray 8X8 glass casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Pour ingredients from pot into baking dish. 
Place in oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until top is lightly brown.

Vegan Tip: If you want to try this vegan-style just use a regular frozen veggie mix, add some seasoning salute and a touch of olive oil. You can also make a half whole wheat crust if you have time!! Get the recipe here.
