Serves: 4

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 35-45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 small onion
  • 2/3 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup frozen diced carrots
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups chopped leftover Thanksgiving turkey
  • 1 puff pastry sheet, cut into four 4 1/4-inch squares
  • 1 large egg, beaten

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly oil four 10-ounce ramekins or coat with organic nonstick spray.

2. To make the filling, melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic, onion, corn, carrots and peas and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions become translucent. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in chicken broth, milk and thyme, and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in turkey; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

3. Divide the filling evenly into the ramekins. Top with puff pastry and gently cut 4 vents in the top of the crust. Brush each crust with the beaten egg.

4. Place into oven and bake until the crust is golden brown, about 20-30 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
