After looking around for a good, dairy-free, chicken pot pie recipe that used quality ingredients, we came up with this one. As always, using veggies fresh from the garden makes it better, but it is still mighty tasty if you use frozen peas and carrots and such.
We choose to use spelt flour, but whole wheat works just as well. We figure that commercial foods tend to use wheat, so we generally use spelt in all our home made goods for the nutrional variety.
This is the version of tuna casserole that my mom made while I was growing up. I loved this stuff, and never understood why people made fun of it. Once I got a little older and tried some of the "standard recipes" it suddenly made more sense why tuna hotdish was so despised: Cream of mushroom or onion soup as part of the white sauce!
Mom's version is made with a sauce consisting of milk, flour and mayo. In my opinion, this gives the dish a much better flavor.
