Hi Jill,
Thank you for this recipe! I have some beautiful Swiss chard growing in my garden and can’t wait to make this. I notice that the print recipe instructions don’t give baking/broiling times. Of course, one could always go back to your wonderful video, but you’ll likely want to add. Again, many thanks!

I love the idea of using uncooked quinoa for nutritious topping. Much faster than a shepherd’s pie which requires cooking and mashing of potatoes.

Wow! It looks soooo easy. I can’t wait to make this. Thanks Jill. I love your recipes.

I understood that quinoa is supposed to be soaked to remove the bitter coating but you didn’t soak yours??

This looks AH-MAZING!! Is there a suitable sub for prune juice? I hate to buy a whole bottle for just 1/2 cup.

You can just use more vegetable broth

Update- I made this for dinner tonight. It’s just as easy as it looks and it was delicious. This is going into our weekly rotation.

Do you think I can use millet in place of the quinoa?

I haven’t tried it but I think it would work

Hi, I just finished watching a documentary on the health benefits of a plant based diet and I’m thinking of adopting this life style. After a quick google for recipe sites yours popped up. This recipe for mushroom pot pie looks delicious and I will definitely give it a try.

I made this for dinner tonight. I doubled the recipe so we could have enough for a few days and/or lunch. I made the mistake of doubling the batter for the top. There was too much and it didn’t really cook. The flavor was still good. However… I JUST reread the recipe and realized I forgot to add the water. Duh! No wonder it was more like a powder. I mixed everything in the pan and put it in bowl for dealing with tomorrow. Do you think if I added the mixture back into the pan and added water, the quinoa would cook and it would be tasty or would the vegetables be soggy?
