It has been comfort food here out the wazoo as I revel in my own kitchen again, and try to keep the winter cold from creeping into our bones. This week we’ve had foccacia, victoria sponge, eccles cakes, vegan mock tuna, and the day I got home from overseas I made cheddar biscuits, homemade ranch, a pot of spicy black beans, brown rice, and quinoa salad. I’m guessing food is my love language.
I’ve also been in the pie game lately, and while I work on perfecting my pastry (almost there!), I’ve been known to cheat and chuck everything in a tin with some frozen puff pastry on top. I ain’t complaining, see?
Nothing wrong with a bit of bought puff.
Now, the “chicken” pieces in this are the quorn fillets and on subsequent incarnations of this delicious beast, I’m going to leave them out. I thought I’d give them a try, but I could really take them or leave them after further investigation. I’m going to add chunks of potato and corn kernels and have myself a veggie pot pie instead. But for all y’all who miss this kind of thing – get stuck in! (And if you miss lasagne, I’ve got you covered.)
I love a pot of something bubbling on the stove! Add a creamy sauce with plenty of flavour and it’s going to be hard for me to say no. Thankfully I don’t need to! I can eat it while watching Cartman scream at his cat.
Is it cold where you are? Do you love comfort food?
Yes I served this with mashed potato, for it is my life.
