A Pot Pie Makeover

By Posted on

turkey-pot-pieForget those pasty frozen pot-pies from the supermarket. Once you’ve tried our Health-e-Recipe for Turkey Pot Pie with Cornbread Crust, you can rest assured that this version of a favorite comfort food is healthy.

Just take a few chopped veggies, pearl onions and green peas, simmer them and whisk a little white sauce together from olive oil and rice flour and low-fat milk. Seasoned with thyme, this sauce blends perfectly with the vegetables and turkey breast.

A healthy corn-bread mix serves as a base for the topping. With 5 tsp. of butter and 1 egg divided among 8 servings, this dish remains low in fat and calories – especially compared to the premade pot pies in the freezer case. You can maintain a healthy weight for lower cancer risk while indulging in a pot-pie craving.
