Who says you need meat to make a delicious pot pie?  Robust, seasonal flavors, including “meaty” portobello mushrooms, thyme, and butternut squash are topped with mashed sweet potatoes for one great-tasting vegetarian meal.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour and 5 minutes
Makes 6 servings



    • 6 cups cubed winter vegetables, such as carrots, butternut squash, onion, and potatoes, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
    • 1/2 pound portobello mushrooms, cut in half, then into 1/2-inch strips
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 pound sweet potatoes*
    • 1 cup apple juice, divided
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Ground Nutmeg, divided
    • 1 can (14½ ounces) vegetable broth
    • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 1 teaspoon McCormick Garlic Salt
    • 1 teaspoon McCormick Thyme Leaves 
    • 1 teaspoon McCormick Ground Mustard 


Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss chopped vegetables and mushrooms with olive oil.  Spread on two large baking sheets; place side by side in oven. Roast 25 minutes or until vegetables are golden in color. 

Pierce sweet potatoes with fork and microwave 5-10 minutes or until tender, turning potatoes over halfway through cooking. Cool 5 minutes; remove skin. Mash with 1/4 cup apple juice, butter and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg until smooth.  Season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep warm. 

Whisk together vegetable broth, 3/4 cup apple juice, cornstarch, garlic salt, thyme, mustard and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.
Pour into a large skillet; bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer 2 minutes. 
Add roasted vegetables and stir gently to combine.
Pour into a 2-quart casserole. Top with mashed sweet potatoes. 

Bake at 425°F 20 minutes or until potatoes start to brown.

*Tip: You may substitute two cups of drained canned sweet potatoes for fresh sweet potatoes.  Place potatoes and butter in microwave for 1-2 minutes, or until butter is melted and potatoes are warm.  Remove from microwave and mash with 1/4 cup apple juice and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg until smooth.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Keep warm.  Continue with Step 3.
