Pot pie recipe anyone?

I know it's summer, but I just love them. Something with tofu and whole wheat crust would be great - simillar to Amy's brand here in the US - only I could make it myself to be cheaper and family sized. I did a search, but didn't see any recipes on here.

I have a yummy recipe for filling, unfortunatly, I'm lazy so I usually buy my pie crusts pre-made, but I'll look through my hubby's pastry book to see if there are any good whole wheat pie crusts. Anyhow, try this filling if you get the chance!

Filling:

2 1/2c Vegetable broth
3c Diced potatoes
1c Finely chopped carrot
1/2c Chopped onion
1c Frozen or fresh green peas and corn
1/2c Chopped mushrooms
1/4c Flour
1/4ts Pepper
1/2c plain Soy milk
1 pk Extra-firm tofu, drained, patted dry and cut into cubes
Pinch of salt
Any other seasonings you like!

In a large saucepan, bring vegetable broth to a boil over medium-high heat. Add potatoes, cover and cook 5 minutes. Add carrots, and onions. Cover and cook 3 minutes. Add peas, corn and mushrooms. Cover and cook 2 minutes or until tender.

Combine flour and pepper. Add soy milk and beat together well. Gradually add to vegetable mixture, stirring well. Over medium-high heat, stir constantly for about 3 minutes, or until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat, stir in tofu, and salt and any other seasoning to taste.

Pour filling into pie crust and pop in the oven.
