Reviews for Chickpea Potpies
"My husband and I liked all of this... except the chickpeas! We found them to be dry and didn't seem right with the rest of the filling. Next time I will add everything except the chickpeas because it's a great recipe otherwise. I made it as one big casserole, and used refrigerated crescent rolls instead of pie pastry (because I already had it on hand). I wouldn't recommend doing this because it quickly got soggy. I will stick with the pie pastry next time."
"Wonderful! I had enough filling for 5, but only had 4 ramekins. The filling makes a good stew so getting rid of it wont be a problem."
"This sounds really yummy!! Im going to try this. I used to do the bisquick one, but i like making everything from scratch.... so Thankyou for your recipeKatlaydee3, could you tell me why you wouldn't make it again? Just curious, as i am thinking of making this!!"
"Have made this multiple times now. Very good recipe even for non-vegetarians; I have 2 vegetarians and two carnivores, and dinners can be tricky. This worked for everyone, and can even be made in the crockpot with the sauce thickened on the stove. A crust of your choice can be baked separately, tho we often do this without a crust and serve over egg noodles."
"This got rave reviews from my just turned vegetarian grandson. Didn't have pie crust so I used crescent rolls on top, no hash browns so I subbed with a diced potato partially cooked. Thanks for the recipe. Will def make again!!"
"My husband and I really liked this! I made my own piecrust and used a 9x13 pan. I also baked it at 350 for 1 hour because my vegetables and potatoes were still partially frozen. The only change I think I might make next time is to use chicken broth for a little more flavor."
"I just made this for dinner, really good. This is one I'm going to make again. Even my hubby loved it. We're always looking for new recipes. this one was great for a Saturday dinner."
"This recipe was excellent! I made this a while back and used one 13" X 9" pan. I used a medium onion and milk, not cream. I will definitely make this again."
"This sounds good, but I have a question. Has anyone made this in one pan? I don't have four large ramekins and normally make my pot pies in one baking dish."
"Easy. Like recipe. If people want to tell how hey made theirs, why do they not submit their own recipe?."
"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."
