Holy Batman is it COLD here in Chicago! I took Remy out this morning and all I wanted to do was cry, curl up in bed and/or set myself on fire because I was absolutely chilled to the bone. When all you want to do is warm up, it's wise to make some good ol' comfort food. But, where to begin?
While I've learned to refocus my New Years' goals on experiences more than appearances, there are a few things I want to cross off my list that I'm not sure I'm physically prepared for yet. This means I'm pushing myself harder and longer at my workouts and I need to make sure I'm feeding my body the nutrients it needs. I'm making sure to cook up recipes that are even more full of veggies and protein than usual. If I'm going to eat a lot of food then you can bet your bottom it's going to be good food.
I combined my body's need of nutrients with my desire to forget about winter with this dish. This Savory Pot Pie is warm, creamy and bold. It has an herbed crust (made with cassava flour) on top that adds texture and a hint of flavor without overpowering the "guts" of the pot pie. If you're looking for some warmth from the inside out, look no further.
