Slow Cooker Veggie Pot Pie

Need a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies? Let them help with meal prep!! Plus, add a creamy sauce and flaky topping to all these veggies, and who isn’t going to want to dig right in?! This pot pie is a great way to add any veggie you like to your dinner and still keep it simple. It’s a one-dish meal that comes together by using a combo of fresh and frozen veggies, a simple homemade sauce and a flaky pre-made crust. To me that’s what balance in creating wholesome meals is all about.

Yes, this is really what happens in our house. The sous chef/recipe critic climbs right up and declares her intent to help me “make recipes!”. I love it when she helps! But, I do have to keep an eye on her to make sure she doesn’t add an extra 1/4 cup of salt to anything while I’m working on something else! She just wants to be helpful, you know. 😉

You are essentially going to want about 6 or 7 cups of veggies plus some onion, garlic and herbs. You can see above what we used for our pot pie. Do as much or as little chopping as you want by using more or less frozen or prepared veggies.

Get these all loaded up into your slow cooker! You will need one that is at least 4 quarts. This would be an easy recipe to double by using a 7 quart slow cooker instead!

Use flour, broth, fresh thyme, cornstarch and a little cream to create the perfect homemade sauce. Once everything has cooked up all day and the veggies are nice and tender we will transfer to a baking dish and top with a puff pastry sheet. It takes only a few minutes to be golden brown and a delicious homemade pot pie/comfort food dish is done!

    The concept is good and crust and vegetables were good but it does need more flavor. Trying to think what other herbs or seasoning to add??? To bland

  2. Hi, For whatever reason, I see people complaining about using another dish. I’m guessing you could also suggest skipping the pastry, and drop a dough topping on and stem cook and keep it in one pot? (Dumplings, biscuits?)
    Thanks for your easy and takes recipe!

  3. The point of a slow cooker is not to use a bunch of other dishes , puts, pans and chilling methods. If I’m going to need to bake it anyway, why would I dirty my crock pot?

    1. You could just bake the puff pastry topping and then put it on top of the crockpot meal. Similar to what you do with a Dutch oven

    2. Well for me, I live in a hot environment and it helps a lot to do most of the cooking done in something that doesn’t loose a lot of heat, then have the oven on as little as possible

    3. You can use a crock pot liner. Then a simple wipe to the crock pot and only one dirty dish and you still get that baking goodness on top!

    I made this just yesterday. It is so good everyone loved it. I will keep this recipe for future use maybe add different vegetables. It was something different and delicious. Thank you for sharing.

        1. Yes, there are a lot of veggies and a lot of liquid in the recipe. Feel free to reduce to your liking if you don’t like your filling to be a thick.
