Green Curry Pot Pie

Hey guys! Today I thought I would write about a dish I made for my mom the other night. It was so delicious and it took very little effort, so I thought I would share it with you. View the full recipe here.IMG_9312 IMG_9318

The first thing I did was cut up a leek.IMG_9319Then I rinsed everything off. Who knew that leeks were so dirty? I also learned while making this recipe that leeks are basically just giant spring onions. You learn something new everyday! 🙂

Then I peeled a potato…IMG_9332

…and cut it up.IMG_9342

I had lots of vegetable scraps after that (as you can see above)…IMG_9352

…so I put them all in a pot, covered them with water, and simmered them over the stove for a while to make a vegetable broth. Then I strained out the vegetables and stored the broth in my fridge for a future recipe!

Now the cooking begins! I put a little bit of olive oil and the leeks in a pan and cooked them until they were soft.IMG_9646

Then I added the potatoes and sautéd those for about 5 minutes. IMG_9650

In went the ground turkey, as well as some water. I was pretty confused with exactly how much water to put in whenever the recipe said water, because the recipe just said 2 tablespoons, but you added water to the recipe about three times. I ended just putting in 2 tablespoons each time and that seemed to work okay. However, I added more when cooking the turkey (maybe about 6 tablespoons?) because the potatoes were just not cooking fast enough for me.

Now time to add the star of the show! This little jar gave the pot pie all of its delicious flavor! Check it out here.

In it goes!IMG_9682_2 I actually used a gluten free crust to make this recipe, since my mom doesn’t eat gluten. The pie still turned out great! I used the above crust. The package comes with two pie shells. I used one for bottom crust and flipped the other one out of its container to be the top crust.IMG_9687_2 IMG_9692_2

As you can see, I had a little bit of trouble getting the crust out of its metal pan, so the top of the pie looks a bit patchy…IMG_9697_2

…but spread a little egg and water mixture and everything evens out a bit!

TA-DA! It was so delicious! I made it for dinner last night, but I actually had it for breakfast this morning as well. I might have it for lunch too…

IMG_9699_2I also wanted to show you the apron I was cooking in! I look a bit out of it in this picture (I was so tired last night), but I wanted to show the apron my grandmother brought back from Hawaii. (The green and dark pink think around my neck is supposed to be a lei by the way.) It’s a bit cheesy, but still kinda cute so I thought I’d show you.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you make this recipe, let me know how you like it!
