Instant Pot Vegan Soy Curls Pot Pie with Oil-Free Sweet Potato Drop Biscuits

NOTE: To make the biscuits, you will need 2 cups of previously cooked sweet potatoes, so plan accordingly for this.

Also, I used my slam chopper to dice the onion, potatoes, and mushrooms all the same small size. I slice the mushrooms first in half lengthwise and the onions and potatoes into 1/2-inch slices before slamming them in the chopper. This gets them all about the same 1/2-inch size dice.

For the Pot Pie Mixture:

1 cup onion, 
diced into 1/2-inch cubes
2 medium organic gold or white potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch cubes
8 oz. of button mushrooms, 
diced into 1/2-inch cubes
2 garlic cloves, crushed
One 16-oz. bag of organic frozen mixed vegetables (corn, carrots, green beans, and peas)
1 cup soy curls (do NOT hydrate them!) - OPTIONAL
4 cups no-chicken broth (or use veggie broth and add 
2 t Better-Than-Bouillon No-Chicken Broth/stock base concentrate/soup base)1 t each of these dried herbs—rosemary, thyme, basil, sage, and oregano1 T dried parsley3/4 - 1 t salt (or salt to taste)
1/4 t black pepper
2 T whole wheat flour (to be used at the end)

In your electric pressure cooker, steamfry onions  with a bit of broth or water for about 5 minutes on the BROWN or SAUTÉ setting. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add all of the rest of the stew ingredients (EXCEPT the flour), stir together well, and set the pressure manually to 4 minutes with QUICK RELEASE. Open the top of your pressure cooker and stir the mixture. Remove 1 cup of the broth, pour it into a small bowl, and stir in the 2 T. of flour until thickened. Return the blended mixture to the pot, stir in to thicken it. Keep mixture on warm setting until biscuits are made.

For Biscuits:
Makes 24 drop biscuits
2 cups previously cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
6 T (well-stirred) tahini
2 T maple syrup, coconut nectar, or agave

2 t apple cider vinegar
1 t salt
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
4 t baking powder
2-3 T cold water (if needed)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix the wet ingredients in one bowl and the dry in a bit larger one.
Fold the wet mixture into the dry with a silicone spatula, adding a bit of cold water to make sure the dry ingredients are completely moistened. Lightly knead, but do not overmix.
Drop 2 T of batter mixture onto parchment paper-lined pan and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until lightly browned and firm to the touch.
Serve biscuits in a "sea" of the vegan pot pie mixture.

Celebrating National Alopecia Awareness Month with Henry Margu Hair Accents



Most of you know that I have Androgenic Alopecia, so to celebrate National Alopecia Awareness Month, I reviewed an awesome hat wig, called HAIR ACCENTS, by Henry Margu Wigs on my Mrs. Plant and AmyOnWigs channels. Even if you don't have alopecia, this throw-on-and-go wig cap is awesome to wear to the baseball game, the pool, to the gym, and more! Or, you could share this product with someone you know who is going through cancer treatments or has a form of hair loss.

2 t garlic powder
1/2 t onion powder

Drain off soaking water from beans and add to the Instant Pot. Fill the pot with water 2 inches above the beans. Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes. When the Instant Pot beeps, click the cancel button and let the iPot naturally release pressure. Then, open the top, drain the beans (reserving 1/4 cup of the liquid), rinse the beans, and return them to the Instant Pot.

While the beans are cooking, blend the dates with their soaking water,  along with1 additional cup of water, tomato paste, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, mustard powder, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and salt in the blender until very smooth. Add the mixture to the cooked and drained beans along with 1/4 cup of the bean cooking liquid into the Instant Pot.
