Mini Spinach And White Bean Sourdough Pot Pies

I wanted to use my sourdough discard on these mini pot pies and it turned out absolutely delicious.  Having a sourdough starter is such a treat, it is literally the gift that keeps on giving.  There are so many recipes that can be made with a sourdough starter.  You can check out my post How To Make A Sourdough Starter and hopefully you can be inspired to make your own.  It is very easy to make and once is active, that is when the fun begins!
