Samosa Pot Pie


  • Instant mashed potatoes for 8
  • 2 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 TBSP ginger paste
  • 1 12 oz. bag frozen cauliflower
  • 1 12 oz. bag frozen green beans
  • 1 12 oz. bag frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 14 oz. can garbanzo beans, drained
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 3 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. garam masala
  • 3 tsp. cumin
  • 3 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1 pie dough, store-bought or homemade

Raita: In a bowl, mix 5 oz. plain Greek yogurt with 1 small hot house cucumber (1/2 shredded and the other half small diced), mint, juice from 1/2 lime, salt to taste, and sugar to taste.


  1. Preheat oven 400F.
  2. Prepare the raita and place in the fridge until ready to eat.
  3. Prepare instant mashed potatoes according to direction on the box.  Set aside.
  4. Cook the cauliflower, green beans, and peas and carrots in the microwave, slightly undercooking them.  When cooked, add them to a bowl and then add the garbanzo beans and set aside.
  5. In a small bowl, add the salt through coriander and set aside.
  6. In an oven safe skillet, heat the oil; then add the mustard seeds and fry for 10 seconds until they start to pop; then add the onions, zucchini, and ginger and stir-fry for a few minutes.
  7. Add the bowl of cooked veggies and 1/2 of the spices.  Mix to combine.
  8. Add the remaining spice mixture to the prepared mashed potatoes and mix to combine.
  9. Add 1/2 of the seasoned mashed potatoes to 1/2 of the skillet. 
  10. Remove the remaining 1/2 of the veggie mixture from the skillet and add to the mashed potatoes, and mix to combine.  Once 1/2 of the veggies are removed from the skillet, mix the mashed potatoes with the veggies in the skillet. (If your skillet is big enough to mix everything, you don’t need to take any veggies out of the skillet to mix with the mashed potatoes)
  11. Add the mashed potato veggie mix back to the skillet.
  12. Add 1 pie dough on top of the skillet, and add 2-3 vents.  Place in the 400F oven and bake for 20—25 minutes, or until browned and heated through.
