Vegetable Cobbler






Hi friends, Happy Voting! I normally vote on my way home from work, and then proudly display my voting sticker all the way home. I do feel a lot of pride in voting!

Now, on to the food – if you can still eat that is.... after the days votes are tallied.

Delightfully borrowed and changed a *wee* bit from EZRA







INGREDIENTS FOR COBBLER

1 tablespoon vegetable oil (or butter)
1 cup chopped onion
2 or 3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 1/2 cups diced potatoes
1 cup yellow squash
1 cup diced celery
1 cup of corn
1 cup of peas
1 cup diced carrots
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups vegetable stock
2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 1/2 cup cold water
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Salt
Dash of hot sauce






INGREDIENTS FOR BISCUIT TOPPING (makes a thick layer)

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
6 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup Greek yogurt
2 tbs chopped fresh sage


DIRECTIONS


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly butter a medium sized baking dish.






Warm the oil in a soup pot. Add the onions, garlic, cover, and cook on medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the salt, thyme, crushed red pepper flakes, mustard.







Add in all the vegetables except for the peas & corn. Toss in the black pepper and water stock, and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until the vegetables are just tender.


Stir the dissolved cornstarch mixture into the simmering vegetables, stirring constantly. When the liquid starts to thicken, mix in the peas, corn, soy sauce and salt. Taste and adjust the seasonings, if needed. Add in the hot sauce.







Pour the vegetables into the prepared baking dish, and set aside. In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, mix together the melted butter, Greek yogurt, and sage. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until just mixed.

Drop the biscuit batter over the vegetables in the dish in equal mounds. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of a biscuit comes out clean. Serve immediately.


A WONDERFUL DISH, SURE TO PLEASE AND USE ALL OF YOUR LEFTOVER VEGETABLES.

I love that this is a savory cobbler! For some reason, I always thought cobblers had to be sweet but a savory one makes perfect (and delicious) sense :)

Monet said...

OK, what are those flowers in your yard? Blooming in November?? And of course your veggie cobbler looks outrageous. Just got a little side tracked, sorry...

That's too funny! On my way out of the house this morning to vote, my husband and I joked and said the exact same thing as Robert Byrne.

Eliana said...

This cobbler looks amazing! I especially love how the biscuits browned on top. Yummy.

Deborah said...

I've been trying to eat more meat-free meals and this looks like a perfect way to get your veggies in!

Allison said...

Your pictures are amazing. Thank you for sharing! Happy Election Day!

I have started a new food blogging group that celebrates the printed cookbook. I'd love it if you joined us. www.cookbookloversunite.blogspot.com. It's a low-pressure group--just good fun digging through our cookbooks for some gems.

I hope you have short lines at the polls, and get to enjoy some leftover vegetable cobbler for dinner after. :)

What a great dish to get rid of a little of this and a little of that. It seems I always have to toss a few vegetables every week.

Angie's Recipes said...

I would love some for the lunch with a glass of red!

Dimah said...

What a great dish. The flavor combo sounds amazing!

OMG that cobbler looks amazing! Totally sidetracked me...anyways...

I'm so glad I'm not the only q-tip fiend. The gum and wine is a good one!

Susi said...

The vegetable filling of that cobbler looks amazing and so colorful! That alone makes me want to eat it but the topping just takes it over the top! YUM!

Pam said...

What a great recipe! I love pot pies and this vegetable cobbler reminds me of one. YUM!

Taylor said...

I love the biscuit topping on this...the whole things looks delicious! I bet this would be great with some fall veggies too, like brussel sprouts and butternut squash!

Fashion Meets Food said...

My friend use to make this in college and I was obsessed with it. I definitely need to give it a try!

Mary said...

I bet this is fantastic! It's like chicken pot pie without the chicken, which is good, because the chicken is my least favourite part.
We had our municipal elections earlier in the month, and I felt pretty good coming home from the polls in my new neighbourhood.

Great idea. I always have the ingredients for a sweet cobbler so why not a veggie one. Thanks

This looks so yummy! It's nice to see a savory cobbler for a change :)

Foodiva said...

What a gorgeous, practical and comforting dish! Lovely, must try this. Btw, I've never voted in my life because we don't have elections in Brunei. Don't know what it feels like to practice democracy :-).

Katie said...

YUM! This will definitely be on the menu next week! Thanks!
