Thyme and White Bean Pot Pie

Blue Runner Foods is proud to be a sponsor of the Louisiana Restaurant Association Education Foundation and the Louisiana ProStart Program. This year we partnered with the LRAEF for the first ever #BlueRunnerBeanWeek, a week full of learning the ins-and-outs of cooking with Blue Runner beans. Students enrolled in the ProStart curriculum across Louisiana high schools made recipes during the week using various Blue Runner canned and dry bean products.

The final day of Bean Week, students were tasked with incorporating beans into their own recipe. Out of more than 45 recipes submitted, we are proud to announce Stephanie White's ProStart class at Plaquemine Senior High School as the winners! Please enjoy their incredible Thyme & White Bean Pot Pie recipe.

Fill ramekins with pot pie, and place one square of puff pastry on each of the six
ramekins.

8

Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown.

Blue Runner Black Bean SoupYou wouldn’t think soup would be a big deal in a tropical climate like New Orleans, but you’d be wrong. When the temp drops even slightly, we call it gumbo weather. Because you can’t eat gumbo every day, we recommend you try Blue Runner Black Bean Soup. It has an irresistible smoky flavor and is packed with the fiber and veggies your body craves. It’s a perfect warm-me-up from October all the way through to Mardi Gras parade season. To make it extra special, throw on some cilantro, sour cream and minced red onion, mister! Your fam is going to love it. Serves 6.
Bisque BlueThere are two things we love in Louisiana – blue crab and Blue Runner. Add brie (yum) and you’ve got a sweet yet savory bisque your whole family will love at Thanksgiving time or anytime. In case you didn’t know it, the blue crab we enjoy on the Gulf Coast is the same species as the Chesapeake Blue Crab. According to Wikipedia, the blue crab was an important food item for Native Americans and European settlers as early as the 1600s. If it wasn’t served at the first Thanksgiving, it should have been. Yields one gallon
Chicken and Sausage GumboLet’s get this on the record: There is no such thing as gumbo season. Gumbo season is whenever you’re craving something comforting and delicious – a taste of home, if you’re from Louisiana. And if you think seafood gumbo is the only way to go, we’re about to prove you wrong. The fact that Blue Runner makes it so easy to make gumbo that tastes this homemade is gobsmacking – not to mention lip smacking.
