What are the ingredients in air fryer pot pie?

  • 7 cups of mixed vegetables, all chopped into bite-sized pieces.  For this version, I decided to use Springtime veggies.
    • Golden potatoes-these can be baby potatoes or regular sized, neither need to be peeled, just chop into the size you want and go
    • Brussels sprouts- trim and quarter
    • Peas – frozen peas work just fine, just cook in advance so they do not put off too much water
    • Chopped baby carrots–if you don’t have baby carrots you can peel and chop regularly sized carrots
  • Olive oil
  • Diced onion-yellow or white onion works best here
  • Garlic powder
  • Fresh thyme- strip the leaves and remove the stems
  • Flour
  • Chicken broth -if you would like to keep the dish vegetarian, you can substitute vegetable broth
  • Half and half
  • Salt and pepper
  • To make the biscuit topping:
    • Self rising flour
    • Shredded parmesan cheese -you want to use freshly shredded parmesan, not the grated type that comes in a can.
    • Chives
    • Milk
    • Butter
    • Freshly ground black pepper

How to make pot pie in the air fryer

  • Spray a casserole dish lightly with olive oil spray.  Add the chopped veggies and stir to combine.
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high.  When warm, add the onion, garlic powder, and thyme and cook to soften, about 3 minutes.  Add the flour and stir to disappear, 1-2 minutes.  Add the chicken broth, half and half and salt and pepper.  Bring to a simmer and cook until the sauce begins to thicken, 3-5 minutes.  Remove from heat.
  • Stir the sauce through the vegetables.  Pre-heat the air fryer to 400 degrees.  Add the casserole dish and cook 20-25 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  • While the vegetables are cooking, prepare the topping.  Stir together the self rising flour, the parmesan, the chives and the black pepper until well combined.  Add the milk and the butter and stir until a dough-like consistency is reached.
  • When the veggies are done, remove the dish from the air fryer.  Divide the topping into approximately 10 equal pieces and form into biscuits using your hands.  Place them evenly atop the cooked veggies.  Air fry at 400 for another 10-12 minutes until the biscuits are cooked through and lightly browned.
