The Recipe:

Super Bowl Wee Little Veggie Pies

Like Irish shepherd's pie but need something gluten free and healthier? Inspired by my Irish roots, I created this delicious, healthy and gluten-free version that I've dubbed Wee Little Veggie Pies. They use Mac-n-Mo's Morselicious Mix, comprising brown rice, almonds, coconut, flax meal and spices. I use it as a topping for the veggie pies that feature fresh carrots, zucchini, peas, hemp protein powder, cayenne pepper and more yumminess. This is a great treat for everyone, especially the kiddos. You can leave out the cayenne if that's too hot for the wee ones. Or give 'em a little kick!

Mac-n-Mo's Wee Little Veggie Pies

Filling:

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium carrots, chopped
  • 3 medium zucchini, chopped
  • 1 cup peas (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 T parsley, chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2-1 tsp cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 3 T hemp protein powder
  • 1 T toasted hemp seeds
  • Cashew cream (see my video)

Instructions:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients.

Morselicious Pie Crust Topping:*

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. In separate bowl add 4 tablespoons water to  3/4–1 cup Mac-n-Mo’s Morselicious Mix
  2. Add mashed sweet potato
  3. Form into a ball (I used muffin tins for smaller pot pies)
  4. Spray the tins with olive oil
  5. Scoop the filling into each tin
  6. Cover with Morselicious pie crust topping
  7. Bake for 16-22 minutes at 350°. 

*As an option, you can double the topping recipe and after, forming the balls, press them into the pie tins and pre-bake them for approximately 8 minutes to create a crust prior to filling with vegetables and topping. They become more of a veggie pot pie.
