Fluffy Biscuit Topped Veg Pot Pie {plus related recipe}

Now that the holidays are over (I hope everyone had a good time) and things have settled down a little, I decided I wanted a simple, tasty, warm meal.

Tempeh ‘chicken’ Salad

I decided to recreate one of my old favorites in a simple way. The only thing you change is the chicken ingredient, the rest is the same. So quick, so convenient, so healthy and so good.

I love it because 1) it automatically stretches any meal to save some money and 2) it has vegetables scattered throughout.
