2 frozen pie crusts (or homemade crust)
1 10 oz. pkg. frozen green peas
1 large potato, peeled, boiled, and chopped
1 large carrot, boiled and sliced
1/3 cup margarine
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1 and 3/4 cup vegetable broth
2/3 cup soy milk or rice milk
Vegetarian Chicken (*see note)

carrots and "chicken" to the pot, stirring well, and remove from heat.

you could probably make two non-deep-dish pies from the same amount of
ingredients. Fill the bottom crust and cover with top crust. Bake for
*You can use Morningstar Farms chick'n strips. I have used a type of soy chicken I get at a Korean grocery store, in the tofu section.
