Here, a sheet of flaky, buttery puff pastry blankets a silky, rich mushroom and mirepoix mixture that harnesses the rich, unami flavors of the potpie perfectly. Remember: Don't overcook the vegetables since you'll want them to absorb the herby goodness and seasoning in your broth once in the oven. Plus, who wants mushy peas and carrots?


  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 ½ pounds mushrooms (such as cremini or button), halved, or quartered if large

  • 4 carrots, cut into ½-inch pieces

  • 3 celery stalks, sliced ¼ inch thick

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme

  • kosher salt and black pepper

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ cups vegetable broth

  • 1 cup frozen peas

  • 1 sheet puff pastry (half a 17.3-ounce package), thawed

  • 1 small head romaine, leaves torn

  • cup roasted almonds, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar


  1. Heat oven to 400 F. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, carrots, celery, onion, thyme, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the broth and peas; bring to a boil.

  2. Transfer the mushroom mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish. Lay the pastry on top and cut several vents in it. Place the baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until the crust is golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Let rest 15 minutes before serving.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss the romaine with the almonds, vinegar, the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve with the potpie.
