1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 tablespoons vegan margarine
3 tablespoons flour
1 (15-ounce) can vegetable stock
3 teaspoons cornstarch (optional)
2 tablespoons cold water (optional) 2 whole wheat vegan pie crusts, pre-bake 1 crust
1. Filling: Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add and saute onions for 2 minutes. Add the broccoli, sweet potato, carrot, corn, and peas. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until the vegetables are tender, but not mushy. Set aside.
2. Roux: In a sauce pan on medium-high heat, put oil and margarine. Once the margarine is melted, mix in 1 tablespoon of flour at a time with a whisk. It's done once the it is no longer white and a light brown color. Add veggie stock. Whisk it all together. Let it simmer a bit to thicken. If this doesn't thicken it enough to be a sauce, dissolve cornstarch into cold water and then mix into roux.
3. Add the sauce to vegetable mixture. Stir and taste for seasoning.
4. Pour mixture into pre-baked pie shell. Place the other pie crust on top. Cut slits and in the oven it goes.
5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 14 to 20 minutes, or until the top pie crust has has lightly browned.
