IntroductionI call it Farmer's Pot Pie because you should use whatever beans and vegetables you have available according to what is in season and available to you. Skinny because the crust is only on top. I call it Farmer's Pot Pie because you should use whatever beans and vegetables you have available according to what is in season and available to you.

This is a super versatile, easy, and very yummy recipe! I modified it quite a bit: I used whatever veggies I had in my fridge, replaced the white flour with whole wheat pastry flour, and replaced the margarine with light butter. It came out great and each serving was around 200 cals. Thanks! - 5/22/12
Prep took a little more time than I was hoping for, but the meal was excellent. The nutmeg really rounds out flavors. The balance between squash, yam and potato gives the filling complexity. We found the filling to be runny by the time we were done, so it was more like stew with crust. Very good! - 7/21/11
This was good. Could use a bit less sage. As many have said, use the veggies you have or like. Replaced russet potato, butternut squash, mushrooms, and beans with green beans, carrots, and corn. Brushed top with egg wash. Remember to put a cookie sheet under it for spills! Have to clean my oven now. - 10/24/10
