Bring nourishing, vegetarian comfort food to the table with this hearty vegetable pot pie that's packed with root vegetables and topped with a biscuit crust studded with organic black pepper.



    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel and cut butternut squash, carrots and rutabaga into ¼-inch cubes. Toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil and spread onto a baking tray in a single layer. Roast until vegetables are tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

    2. In a large pot or skillet with deep sides, heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and butter over medium-low heat. Mince shallot, add to pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.

    3. To the shallots, add the white wine, rosemary, sage, sea salt and white pepper, along with the roasted vegetables. Stir and cook for 4 minutes.

    4. Stir in peas and flour. Cook for 1 minute then add the vegetable broth. Continue to cook, stirring often, until the filling has thickened, 6 to 8 minutes. Divide the filling into four oven-safe soup bowls, or pour into a 9x9-inch baking pan.

    5. To make the biscuit topping, combine the flour, baking powder, and sea salt in a bowl. Add in olive oil and with your fingers, work the olive oil into the flour until the mixture looks crumbly. Pour in milk and add ½ cup shredded cheese. Stir until dough comes together. Divide dough into 4 pieces and pat into a ½-inch thick circle. Place biscuits on top of the filling and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

    6. Bake pot pies at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes until biscuits are golden and the filling is bubbling. Serve while hot.

    Note To make vegan, replace the butter in the filling with additional olive oil. Leave the cheese out of the biscuits, and sub in your favorite non-dairy milk for the 2% or whole milk.
