One of my husband’s favorite Fall meals is a pot pie. In my feel-good interpretation of this classic comfort food, I use an abundance of veggies with a creamy white bean and rosemary puree (instead of gravy made with white flour). For my husband, I keep a touch of the rich, flaky pastry crust. But you could easily enjoy these creamy veggies over a piece of whole grain or sprouted grain toast. I like to serve these pot pies piping hot with a small salad.
