Skillet Spring Vegetable Pot Pie
We wanted a simple vegetable pot pie filled with the lighter, brighter flavors of spring.
Why This Recipe Works
Identifying the best mix for a pot pie filling was the crux of our spring vegetable pot pie recipe testing. We chose to replace the onions in the winter root vegetable pot pie with leeks and omit the celery altogether because of its pervasive flavor. We kept the carrots to lend sweetness and color to the filling, as well as white mushrooms. Frozen peas, added just before baking, also added a sweet flavor. Asparagus would be the spring vegetable star of the show, and it was easy to incorporate into our spring vegetable pot pie recipe: We simply stirred raw sliced asparagus into the hot filling.
