Good Food Karma

Last night I threw together a Veggie Pot Pie using stuff hanging around the fridge/freezer. I must say that it was so good (and surprisingly so considering the lack of any planning on my part) and I am looking forward to leftovers.

Here is what I did:

I roasted 5 diced carrots, 3 diced red potatoes, 1/2 diced onion (mixed w/ olive oil, salt, pepper, sage, thyme). I also roasted 5 cloves of garlic (all that were left on the head).

Once the veggies were done roasting, I added a bag of frozen soup vegetables (corn, carros, peas, potatoes, onions, green beans, okra, lima beans) to the dish, mixed in the roasted garlic, and put back in the oven to heat through.

Meanwhile, I defrosted a 16 oz. container of garden brown gravy (leftover from Christmas -- this is a great CL recipe), and simmered on the stove to reduce. I ended up mixing in 1/8 cup of flour to thicken it up.

I put the veggies in a 1.5-2 qt. casserole dish, poured the gravy over it, and covered with biscuits (3 Pilsbury frozen that I had defrosted and rolled out as big as I could get them; and 5 small refrigerated ones that I spread out and covered all exposed veggies).

I baked at 375 degrees for about 25-30 mins, until the biscuits were golden and the gravy bubbly.

The result was so tasty, I ate two servings. I probably will never be able to repeat this recipe, it was just good food karma! :D I give the credit to the gravy and roasted veggies and garlic.
