Veggie Pot Pie with Einkorn Crust
So I like pot pies. Like, a lot. I have a few recipes for it but all vary in different ways. I think the main flavors are veggies are similar although I used different crusts for different people. This one specifically uses einkorn flour, which is like the original wheat. From Jovial Food's website:
Einkorn (rhymes with “fine corn”) is the oldest food to make its way back to your table.
How old is it? Einkorn was one of the first foods planted, at the birth of agriculture 10,000 years ago. It grew wild for millions of years before that.
Einkorn is the only wheat to have never been hybridized (unlike modern soft and durum wheat), and to have only 2 sets of chromosomes. This is real wheat, the way it was meant to be.
Einkorn is a delicious, healthy alternative to mass market wheat, and can be an excellent solution for those with gluten sensitivity.
Einkorn has 30% more protein and 30% less starch than regular wheat, plus abundant B Vitamins and trace minerals like Iron. Those extra nutrients translate directly to more energy and a greater feeling of wellness, not empty calories.
The gluten in einkorn lacks the high molecular weight proteins that many people can’t digest. If you are sensitive to modern wheat, einkorn can provide a delicious alternative. Please note that einkorn does contain gluten and is therefore not ok for those with Celiac Disease.
Basically einkorn hasn't been tampered with and that messing with the DNA of the plant is what causes a lot of the allergies and sensitivities. Along with the sprays and use of herbicides and pesticides, our grains are saturated in things that cause us health issues. This flour is not one of them. If you want to try this one out they sell it on their website and on Amazon. It has a great flavor and there are tons of recipes you can use it for! It is honestly one of my favorite flours and makes the most perfect flaky crust. :)

HAPPY RECIPE SEARCHING!
Here you will find recipes either created by me or from ones I have found and changed up to my liking. I try to use ingredients that are usually 95% organic (lessen that toxic load!), very little unrefined sugars used and the majority of these are GLUTEN FREE. We eat legumes, grains, nuts, seeds, grass fed organic meats, pasture raised eggs, very small amounts of organic dairy, and lots of fruits and veggies! You can always change up the recipes to fit your lifestyle or taste buds! Thanks for supporting me and my art through food!
