I made this like a chicken and biscuits recipe by making the soup on the stovetop (without the pie crust) and serving over biscuits- you could also put the biscuits on top while it's cooking with the lid on like chicken and dumplings. I added some sage and bullion, used regular diced potatoes, and used less broth and more milk since I didn't have cream. I skipped the butter, too. This turned out to be a great substitute for the traditional meat version, at least the way I made it. I will definitely make it again.
This was okay but not great; will probably not make again.
This recipe was not stated to be vegetarian but I thought it would be a great thing to try since we are vegetarians. All was good until I tried to buy refrigerated pie pastry. Every one offered at my local groceries contained LARD, which is an animal product, that we do not include in our vegetarian diet. We did find box pie crust mix from betty crocker that seems to be vegetarian. Have not made this yet but will this week. Might add some cauliflower to the veggie mix. Looking forward to an alternative to chicken potpie. If it turns out great I will feed it to Mom and get her feed back, because she loves chicken potpie.
