Vegan White Bean Pot Pie Soup

Pot pie without a finicky crust or long bake time? Meet this EASY vegan soup that’s super cozy and delicious! It’s got all the flavor of your favorite pot pie but none of the hassle.

Think flaky, buttery, optionally gluten-free biscuits over a creamy, comforting soup packed with white beans and veggies. What’s not to love? Let’s make soup!

Gluten-free biscuit dough, cashews, vegan butter, mixed frozen vegetables, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, gluten-free flour blend, white beans, and vegetable broth

This cozy, comforting soup begins with a base made by sautéing onion and garlic, thickening with flour (gluten-free or all-purpose), seasoning with salt and pepper, and finally, vegetable broth.

It then heads in a hearty, creamy direction with the addition of veggies, white beans, and cashew cream or canned light coconut milk.

The final element is biscuit dough! We used our vegan + gluten-free biscuits, which are easy to make and super fluffy.

All that’s left to do is scoop the dough on top of the soup and bake it. Then dinner awaits!

CASHEW CREAM*

  • 2/3 cup raw cashews (see notes for a cashew-free option)
  • 1 cup water

SOUP

  • 3 Tbsp vegan butter (we like Miyoko’s)
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced (1 small onion yields ~1 ½ cups or 225 g diced)
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup MB 1:1 Gluten-Free Flour Blend (or sub other gluten-free flour blend or all-purpose flour)
  • 1/2 tsp each sea salt and black pepper (plus more to taste)
  • 2 ½ cups vegetable broth (or store-bought)
  • 1 (16 oz.) bag frozen mixed vegetables (1 bag yields ~3 ½ cups // corn, green beans, peas, and carrots // or sub fresh)
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans white beans, drained (we used cannellini // or sub ~3 cups homemade)
  • 1 batch Easy Vegan Gluten-Free Biscuit DOUGH (or sub store-bought biscuit dough)
  • To a high-speed blender*, add cashews and water. Blend on high until super smooth and creamy. Set aside. You can skip this step if you prefer to use a can of light coconut milk (see notes below).
  • Heat a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Once hot, add the vegan butter and melt over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until translucent and fragrant. Turn the heat to medium-low and add the garlic, flour, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine the onions and the flour, then slowly add the vegetable broth, whisking frequently to prevent clumps. Once combined, stir occasionally until the mixture is lightly simmering and has thickened, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the cashew cream (or light coconut milk), frozen mixed veggies, and drained white beans. Stir to combine, then cover and let simmer on low heat for 10-15 minutes while you prepare the biscuit dough and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 C). If the soup is too thick, add up to 1/2 cup (120 ml) water as needed to thin it out. Taste and adjust the broth as needed, adding more salt and pepper to taste, keeping in mind the biscuits will add a salty finish.

  • When the biscuit dough is ready, scoop it out in ~2 Tbsp amounts (we used this scoop) and evenly distribute the dough over the top of the soup. You can do more well-formed “scoops” or simply use a spoon and do “drop” biscuits. Both methods work!
  • Transfer the pot to the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes (uncovered), or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the biscuits comes out clean.

  • Remove from the oven, let cool for a few minutes, and enjoy!

  • Best when fresh, though leftovers do keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month. The texture of the biscuits changes and becomes less appetizing with freezing and to a lesser extent with refrigerating.

*If your blender isn’t very powerful, you can soak the cashews in hot water for 20 minutes (then drain) before blending. We didn’t find soaking necessary.
*Cashew-free option: You can replace the cashew cream with a 14 oz. (400 ml) can of light coconut milk.
