Amy’s Gluten Free Vegetable Pot Pie Review

Amy's Gluten Free Vegetable Pot Pie

Amy’s Kitchen is good at making multiple variations of their meals to accommodate a wide range of eating restrictions. Take their pot pie line. While all of their frozen food is vegetarian-friendly, they’ve created a standard version of their Vegetable Pot Pie, as well as a dairy-free version for vegans and anyone who is lactose intolerant. Add to that the Gluten Free Vegetable Pot Pie for those avoiding gluten and you really have a lot of variety when it comes to choosing a pot pie.

So the question we’re looking to answer today is this: How does the Amy’s Gluten Free Vegetable Pot Pie stack up against the other two pot pies we mentioned?

Amy's Gluten Free Vegetable Pot Pie

To be consistent with the other Amy’s brand pot pies we’ve reviewed, we decided to cook this using the microwave instructions. It’s just a simple four-minute cook time with no flipping or stirring or pondering the meaning of life in the middle of it.

Since the crust is the unique factor in this pot pie, let’s start there. We noticed that the crust here caused a few problems that are unique to this pot pie. For example, the crust was a bit soggy, rather than the crispiness we noticed with the other two pies. Also, the crust stuck to the paper tray that it comes in. We really struggled to get it out of the tray, and the result was a pretty messy-looking meal.

The crust also feels a bit grainy, though this graininess sort of dissolves when you mix it into the other ingredients.

As always, the tofu is spot-on.┬áIt’s a great substitute for what would have otherwise been chicken or beef, and it tastes good enough that even non-vegetarians probably won’t miss their meat content all that much.

Then there are the veggies. While carrots and peas aren’t our favorite vegetables, they do alright for themselves here. It’s the potatoes that are the true star of this veggie show, as they taste great and add a bit of much-needed heartiness to this meal. And all of this comes soaked in a delicious creamy sauce.

If you’re looking for a low-calorie pot pie, this is definitely not your best choice. Both the standard version of this pot pie and the dairy-free version are lower in calories than this one. At 490 calories (220 from fat), this pot pie will put some meat on your bones. However, of the three pot pies we keep mentioning, this one does contain the least sodium, at 580 mg. Like every Amy’s Kitchen product we can recall off the top of our head, this one contains no GMOs.

The Amy’s Kitchen Gluten Free Vegetable Pot Pie isn’t the healthiest pot pie in Amy’s lineup, but it does stand up to its peers in the flavor department. We aren’t huge fans of the gluten-free version of this crust, but we appreciate the gesture of allowing our non-gluten friends to partake in Amy’s wonderful line of pot pie goodness.
