The Thanksgiving holiday was different for a lot of us this year, and while the reasons for it are sad, I am not upset with how our holiday dinner turned out. We had Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings, good china and silver. Ate until we were fit to burst, then settled in to watch Miracle on 34th St.
In some ways I think it’s healthy to take a break from things. It gives us a chance to see which traditions we truly miss and enjoy and those we clung to simply because they are tradition and we feel obligated to do so. We should have traditions we truly enjoy, not ones that someone tells us we “need” to do.
Do what makes you happy.
As much as I love the feast that is Thanksgiving dinner, leftovers are equally good. This allergy friendly pot pie is rich and creamy and uses biscuits instead of pie crust for the top.
1 Onion, diced
1 Clove garlic, minced
1 Stalk Celery, diced
1 teaspoon Thyme
1 teaspoon Sage
1 teaspoon Parsley
1 teaspoon Salt
4 Tablespoons Coconut oil, divided
5 Tablespoons Cassava flour
1 Can Coconut Milk
¾ Cup Bone Broth
2 Cups Diced Turkey
3 Cups Vegetables. Or one bag frozen
¾ Cup Coconut Flour
1 Cup Tapioca Flour
¾ teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons gelatin
¼ Cup Olive Oil
½ Cup Coconut Milk
¼- ½ Cup Water or Bone Broth
Heat 1 Tablespoon coconut oil in a frying pan and saute onion and celery until tender. Add garlic, herbs and salt. Saute an additional 1-2 minutes.
Melt remaining coconut oil and slowly sprinkle in flour, stirring as you go. Continue stirring while adding milk. Add in bone broth and mix. Add in turkey and vegetables and mix until well coated. (I used a bag of frozen California Medley, but use whatever is on hand or on special)
Pour into a 13’x9” baking dish and level. I used two smaller pans this time so I can easily freeze half.
Mix dry ingredients. Add oil, water and milk, mixing into a soft dough.
Form into 2-3” rounds and place on top of the filling.
Bake 375F 20-25 minutes until biscuits are golden brown and pie is bubbling.
