From the Pantry Pot Pie

This is another dish from “The Vegan Slow Cooker,” and, I have to say, I was kind of disappointed. The vegetable part of the dish was awesome, but the biscuits didn’t really turn out that well. They were kind of doughy. I propped the lid of my crockpot as the recipe suggested and even let them cook a bit longer, but they just would not firm up. So, I ended up taking the biscuits off the top and making herbed whole wheat drop biscuits in the oven, which turned out really well. The biscuit recipe I got from “Vegan Brunch.” Their texture provided a nice crunch to go with the chicken seitan and veggies. I do plan on making this dish again, but I’ll just leave off the biscuits and make a batch separately.

  1. Hi Amanda! I would love to help you troubleshoot the biscuit mishap. I saw you propped up the lid, but are you sure you turned the heat to high? I’ve over looked that before, but if you did turn it to high I wonder if your slow cooker is an older one…

    • Hello Kathy! Thank you so much for responding. I’m honored that you came across my little blog.

      As for the biscuits, I did turn the heat up to high, but I didn’t allow any extra time to heat up a bit. Also, my slow cooker is a few years old. So the combination of the two could have something to do with it.

      I do want to try it again because the flavors were delicious and I’ve had such wonderful experiences with your other recipes. It’s been a lifesaver in my kitchen. Again, thank you so much for your help!
