Meatless Monday Grocery List (Flexitarian Edition): Chicken-less Pot Pie

Have you been thinking about trying my Meatless Monday Healthy Eating Challenge? This is a great week to jump in:

If there is an avowed carnivore in your home, this recipe might be one to try for your own personal Meatless Monday: Chicken(less) Pot Pie. Using white beans to replace the chicken makes for a delicious, hearty and amazing meatless main dish. But if you have a spouse, child or other family member that is digging in their meaty heals, cook some chicken on the side, add it to a smaller portion for them, and everyone is happy!

This recipe was an instant favorite from the first time I made it! We've had it both with meat and without, and either way it is gobbled up.

Grocery List:

3 carrots
3 celery ribs
1 russet potato

1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour (or more all-purpose flour)
2 - 15 ounce cans Great Northern Beans -OR- 3 1/2 cups cooked white beans

1/3 cup light sour cream
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk or buttermilk

dried thyme
white sugar
baking soda
baking powder
vegetable oil

2 cups frozen peas

Go for it, you can do this challenge!
