I made a gluten free Turkey Pot Pie yesterday for dinner. It was absolutely wonderful! Of course I had to share it with you right before the holidays.
The truth is, this is my first time roasting a turkey. I always bring dessert for Thanksgiving so I never really had the need to make a turkey. By the way, how did the turkey come out? It was okay. I tried to make a slow roasted turkey by following Nourished Kitchens recipe and it was a bit dry on top, I am pretty sure I overcooked it. Next time I will try brining. But I will get it right!
Nevertheless, I love Turkey Pot Pies, and so does my husband, so that is why I decided to make one. I will admit, making a Turkey Pot Pie, from scratch takes several hours, but, in the end its worth it. That is why I am just sharing the crust recipe with you. If any of you request the whole pot pie recipe, I will share it. If you are up for the challenge.
I actually made two pies and this is the one that I ended up reheating for dinner tonight. It actually was even more flavorful than the first. My 6 year old daughter helped make this pie and I am sure that is why it tasted better! She kneaded the dough and put so much love into it. It was a special bonding moment that I will treasure forever.
I ended up making two crusts for the Turkey Pot Pie, but a top crust would work just fine.
You can use this pie crust to make a pot pie, quiche, pumpkin pie, apple pie, you name it. It’s a basic paleo pie crust. I think I will make an apple pie with this recipe and serve it with some homemade vanilla bean coconut ice cream, yeah, that sounds good.
