with puff pastry / sweet potato wedges

Active: 30 min Total: 45 min

This is no ordinary pot pie and it was greeted with rave reviews when we first made it in 2017. This recipe gives the classic pot pie a South Asian twist with coconut milk and warm, fragrant spices.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 400F / 204C degrees.
  2. Spread sweet potatoes out on a sheet pan. Toss with oil, garam masala (portions for the sweet potatoes), and sugar. Season with some salt.
  3. Transfer sweet potatoes to the oven and bake, shaking the pan a few times while they cook, until tender, ~30 minutes.
  4. While potatoes roast, heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil (portion for pot pie) and then onions and carrots with a pinch of salt. Saute until onions and carrots are softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add butter, flour, and tomato paste and saute until no dry spots of flour remain.
  5. Add turkey and cook, breaking turkey apart, until turkey is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.
  6. Next add in peas (no need to defrost them, just break them up as they cook), stock, and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 2 minutes.
  7. Remove skillet from heat and cover with puff pastry (if it's too big, trim with scissors). Use a fork to press the edges of the pastry against the sides of the skillet and trim off any excess.
  8. Whisk egg yolk and water and brush over puff pastry. Make a few slits with a knife and bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden.
  9. Serve pot pie and sweet potatoes with yogurt. Enjoy!

Flavors were great and the recipe was quick and easy. BUT the pot pie crust came out raw and gross, no matter how long I kept this in the oven. I have never used puff pastry before so I don’t know what I did wrong.

Very good overall, even my daughter ate it and she can be kind of picky. Almond flour crust was just ok (wish there was a gluten free puff pastry substitute). After reading the comments about it being soupy, we just simmered on the stovetop for a few extra minutes to evaporate off the extra liquid. We would definitely make it again!

Love this -- super easy. Used a pie crust for the top instead of puff pastry and turned out great!

This is one of my favorite CS meals. Easy and very tasty. It’s a ‘go to’ when I prefer to have something not on the weekly menu.

We went a bit off course, mashing the sweet potato and spreading it on top like some reviewers suggested, and THEN putting the puff pastry on top of that. It was DELICIOUS!
