Aunt Jean’s Tofurky Pot Pie

This recipe comes on the box of Tofurky and is a great way to use up any leftovers.

It is a bit time consuming, but it makes a very large pot pie and is well worth the time! Ingredient: 1 pie crust, top and bottom 2 tbsp vegan butter (Earth Balance) 1 medium onion, chopped 1 clove garlic, minced 1 cup potatoes, cubed ½ tsp sage ½ tsp oregano ½ tsp. salt ½ tsp....

I have served this to vegans and non-vegans and everyone has loved...
