Cauliflower and Mushroom Pot Pie with Black Olive Crust

Here is a hearty and healthy dish which is also delicious and which can be made totally vegan if desired.  Makes a great addition for a holiday side or main dish as well as a great and hearty dish for any other time. Plus, you can easily make the recipe gluten-free.

 
Ingredients:
    Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons butter (or butter substitute for all vegan)
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose unbleached whole wheat flour*
  • 2 cups organic whole milk (or almond or rice milk for complete vegan)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt ground pepper

    *Or go gluten free with coconut flour or other gluten-free flour

    Vegetables
  • 1 lb cauliflower, trimmed, washed, and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 leek, thinly sliced
  • 1 small carrot, diced
  • 1/2 lb cremini mushroom, washed, trimmed, and sliced into large chunks
  • 1 teaspoon sherry wine or white wine vinegar
     
    Black olive biscuit crust
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour*
  • 1 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder*
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 pinch dried thyme
  • 3 tablespoons butter, chilled
  • 4-5 tablespoons cold water
  • 1/3 cup pitted black olives, chopped coarsely (kalamata recommended)

*Make your own aluminum-free baking powder with this simple and easy recipe:

Aluminum-Free Homemade Baking Powder

 

(As always, for the healthiest recipe use organic content as much as possible.)

Instructions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Use a large, oven-to-table Dutch oven. If you don't have one, use a large, heavy-bottomed pot to prepare the filling and a large, deep casserole dish to bake the finished potpie.
  2. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan (not the Dutch oven) over medium heat, melt the butter/butter substitute and sprinkle in the flour. Stir to form a thick paste. Cook the mixture until fragrant, bubbling, and lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Temporarily turn off the heat. Slowly pour in the milk, using a wire whisk to stir until smooth. Whisk in the dried herbs, mustard powder, salt, and bay leaf. Turn on the heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly with whisk, for 8 to 10 minutes, until a thick sauce forms. Turn off the heat, remove the bay leaf, and adjust the salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Heat the oil in the Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the leeks and carrots, and sauté for 6 to 8 minutes until most of the excess liquid from the mushrooms has evaporated. Add the cauliflower, stir briefly, cover partially, and steam for about 8 minutes, until the cauliflower has just begun to soften. Remove the lid, turn off the heat, and set aside.
  5. Prepare the crust while cauliflower is cooking: Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and thyme in a small bowl. With a pastry cutter or two knives held together cut the cold butter until crumbs form, then drizzle in tablespoons of cold water and mix. Drizzle in additional tablespoons of cold water, one at a time, until a soft dough forms (but careful not to overwork it). Fold in the olives.
  6. Pat out the dough on a lightly floured surface or give it a few rolls with a rolling pin, to form a circle or appropriate shape slightly smaller than the Dutch oven. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into diamonds (you'll be placing small squares of dough over the casserole, rather than one big disc of dough).
  7. Give the sauce a good whisking (no worries if a skin has formed over it), pour into the cauliflower mixture, and stir completely to blend the veggie juices and sauce. Arrange the diamonds of dough over the mixture and brush with soy milk. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until the cauliflower is tender and the biscuits are cooked. Allow to cool at least 10 minutes before serving, as the filling will be boiling hot straight out of the oven.
Serves 4-6
