I will never forget the first time I tried chicken pie. It was on a college trip in London in the late ‘90s when I came out of the British Museum feeling peckish.

I strolled across Russell Square on an extraordinarily temperate January day and came upon a quaint little 18th century pub known as the Queen’s Larder.

Immediately taken with the decor, I settled in for a pint, ordered, and when the dish came out, it. was. glorious.

The publican set a steaming tureen of chicken stew topped with a puff pastry crust. I think I may have almost cried at how beautiful it looked.

You know those dishes that are almost too beautiful to eat? It almost was, but it was so good, I ordered a second. The look on his face when I did… LOL!!!

Enter: Vegan Pot Pie Casserole

I have made multiple variations of that dish since, but I think this vegan pot pie casserole is the one of which I am most truly proud. That’s probably because it aligns with the ethics I believed I had as a “compassionate, animal lover.”

You are absolutely going to love this vegan pot pie casserole too. It’s SO easy, but it looks like you spent so much time and effort on it that your friends and family will be so appreciative.

Their eyes will widen at the beautiful puff pastry crust as they lean forward to get a better smell from the steaming stew inside. And when they taste it!! They may just thank you for loving them so much to have made this for them.

Vegan Chicken Pot Pie Ingredients

This Vegan Pot PIe Casserole is made with tremendously simple and easily-found ingredients. The full recipe card with measurements can be found at the bottom of this post!

To make vegan pot pie casserole, you’ll need:

Puff Pastry – For the crust. Make sure the brand you’re using is vegan. Traditional puff pastry uses butter, but there are many store-bought puff pastry brands (Pepperidge Farm is probably the most common) that use oil instead of butter. You’ll need 2 large sheets of puff pastry for this vegan pot pie recipe. You will roll each out to be the size of your casserole dish.

Potatoes – Peeled and diced!

Frozen Mixed Veggies – Use whatever mixed veggies you like. We use a frozen blend that includes peas, corn, carrots, and green beans!

Soy CurlsSoy curls are the PERFECT vegan chicken for pot pie! You can sub your favorite vegan chicken but may need to reduce the water a bit, since soy curls come dehydrated. You can usually find soy curls at your local health food store, but we usually just buy them in bulk online. 

Vegan Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup – The star of this show is our Vegan Cream of Chicken Soup recipe! This will create the thick gravy for our filling. You’ll need to make this at least a few hours in advance, but it’s SUPER simple, requires minimal ingredients (bouillon powder, water, cashews, red lentils), and is 100 million percent worth making. If you can’t wait for the soup to thicken, you can use the soup out of the blender and reduce the water in this recipe by about 1 cup.

Spices – Since there’s such a great flavor in the vegan cream of chicken, we kept it simple with the spices, opting for salt, black pepper, and onion powder!

Vegan Chicken Pot Pie + Wine Pairing

We love to pair dry sparkling wine with anything wrapped in puff pastry! The bubbles really cut through the fat and salt of the pastry and provide a really refreshing intermission between bites. We’ve enjoyed this vegan pot pie with our favorite vegan-friendly Prosecco from Ziobaffa many times!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Start your crust: Preheat your oven to 400F and roll out 1 sheet of the thawed pastry for your bottom crust. Lay it in the bottom of a large casserole dish and use a fork to pierce the dough 30-40 times in various places. There's no pattern to this; you just want to keep the dough from rising to much. Then, place the dish in your oven to bake for 15 minutes.
  2. Prepare your filling: Add the water and diced potatoes to a large pot. Cover and bring to a boil. When boiling, turn to medium high and continue to cook, covered, another 5 minutes. Add the frozen mixed veg, cover, and bring to a boil once more. Finally, add your dry soy curls, condensed soup, salt, pepper, and onion powder. Stir the mixture, cover, and turn the heat to medium low for 10 minutes to let the soy curls re-hydrate and absorb all the flavors. If you'd like smaller soy curl pieces, use a spatula to cut up some of the larger soy curls once they're re-hydrated.
  3. Finishing touches: Carefully pour the filling over the bottom crust in the casserole dish and roll your second pastry sheet to a size slightly smaller than your casserole dish. Carefully lay the pastry on top of the filling, cut three long diagonal slits down the middle to let steam escape, and place the dish back in the oven for another 20 minutes or until the crust is a nice, golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes upon removal, and as the scents begin to waft through the house, take a moment to revel in the glory of what you’ve just made. Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week or the freezer for a month.

Notes

*Use any frozen mixed veg you like! We dig the mixed bags of diced carrots, corn, peas, and green beans from Target.

  1. Hi! Question about the ingredients list. When you say a “full batch” of the condensed soup, is that one 8oz mason jar or the entire amount the recipe link makes (3 - 8oz jars)? Excited to make this!!
  2. Hi, I find this a little misleading... puff pastry is made with butter. Do you a vegan alternative you recommend?
    1. Hi, Lena! Actually, most regular old store brands of puff pastry do not use butter and are *accidentally* vegan! Always be sure to check your ingredients, but we've never run into a brand that uses animal products. This is in the US of course, so it could be different elsewhere. But give it a look next time you're at the grocery store, and you'll probably be surprised!
    1. Hi, Teresa! We usually order ours from Amazon, but if that's not an option, feel free to use any store-bought vegan chicken you'd like: Beyond Meat and Gardein are two brands that immediately come to mind. I would try to avoid the breaded varieties though. Let us know if you give it a try!
  3. This is one of our FAVORITE vegan recipes EVER!! Thank You so much for sharing. It is addictive :) This is the first time we have used soy curls, we got them on Amazon. The first time we made it with the puff pastry. Very good but it did not do as well for leftovers. The second time we made it we used vegan pie crust and cooked in a cast iron skillet..... OMGoodness!! The best pot pie ever!! Again Thank You for sharing :)
  4. I don’t have any casserole dishes. Ikr!?? So, when you say large casserole dish, what measurements are we talking? Yes. I’m going to go buy a casserole dish so I can make this deliciousness!! 😍 I’ve missed out on too many recipes for not having a casserole dish. Thank you!!
    1. Liss!?! You ARE missing out! A good casserole can make a bad day great! Let's get you in the right direction. #1 - you want high-heat friendly, like Pyrex. The standard rectangle (large) casserole dish is approximately 14x9. The smaller square ones are approximately 9x9. You can usually find a decent set of the two for pretty cheap. (Sometimes you can even get a 3-piece set with a bread loaf dish as well. Great for "meat"loafs.) I hope this helps! Now, get shopping and make yourself a big old dish of cozy!
    1. "Never give a sword to a person who can't dance" Kidding. A pie crust should work fine. Just read the instructions and watch carefully as the cook-time will be different. Hope this helps!
  5. This was delicious! Hit the craving that had to be had. Ended up making it all in the Dutch oven and baking biscuits on the side- serving it like soup. Yum!
