Creamy Broccoli Pot Pies

 A pot pie are generally made of flaky pastry as a topping and filled with various type of filling. And it is a ultimate comfort food, which can be prepared in multiple flavors, either savory or sweet. Today I have used broccoli with white sauce and avoided cheese. You can alter this recipe with your choice of filling and spice.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 15 minutes
Yield: 4
Adapted from here

Ingredients:
1 cup milk or whip cream for richness
3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 cups steamed broccoli florets (about 2 small heads of broccoli)
Salt + Pepper to taste pinch
1 sheet puff pastry or phyllo sheets
Milk for brushing

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees, grease ramekin pan with oil.  Meantime wash and cut the broccoli in to florets. Place the florets on steamer over boiling water , cover and cook it for 5 minutes. Set aside till use.
2. In a large sauce pan, combine milk and flour over a medium heat.
3. Bring mixture to boil and whisking constantly. Reduce heat to low and stir continuously for 3 ~ 5 minutes, until mixture is thick, continuing to whisk.
4. Remove from heat ( Add 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese this time, if you prefer for it).  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Now sauce will be very thick consistency.
5. Cut phyllo sheets in to four square ( Thaw before using). Or use puff pastry instead of phyllo sheets.
6. Divide broccoli and cheese mixture into four ramekins and top each ramekin with phyllo sheets/ puff pastry. Brush the sheet with milk or egg wash.

Baking:

7. Bake for 12 ~14 minutes or until puff pastry is puffy and golden brown.
