Homespun Vegetarian Pot Pie

November 17, 2010


Ever since we moved in together, Cari and I have cooked mostly meatless dishes.  This started because Cari was a vegetarian for 10 years and has probably continued because we still feel more comfortable with vegetables, grains and beans than we do chicken or beef.  People used to ask me “Don’t you get sick of eating vegetarian all the time?”  My response was usually that Cari and I mixed it up so much that I don’t really have a chance to get sick of anything.

Long before we discovered Mark Bittman, the Food Network or Epicurious, Cari and I really learned how to cook with the aid of our Moosewood cookbooks.   The Moosewood Collective is a collection of food enthusiasts who have written cookbooks.  They also have a restaurant in Ithaca, New York.

This recipe for Homespun Pot Pie comes from Moosewood Restaurant New Classics.  It’s one of those recipes that hearkens back to classic American cuisine, despite the lack of a need for meat.  Although the medley of vegetables and their thick gravy are delicious, the buttermilk biscuit topping is probably our favourite part of this dish.
