Irish Vegetable Cobbler

Cobblers in Ireland are most often a savory main dish rather than a fruit dessert. This one is vegetarian. Makes a great potluck dish. Doubles easily. You can start it in a Dutch oven and transfer it to a casserole for baking.

COBBLER TOPPING

1 3/4 c

2 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
4 Tbsp
unsalted butter, cold
1 c
shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 tsp
fresh oregano, chopped
1 large
egg, lightly beaten
2/3 c
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350°F.
2
Heat oil in a large flameproof casserole dish over medium heat. Add garlic and onions; cook 5 minutes, until softened. Add celery, carrots (or parsnips), rutabaga and cauliflower and cook another 2-3 minutes.
3
Add mushrooms, tomatoes and lentils.
4
Mix together the cornstarch and water and stir into the casserole with the broth, Tabasco and oregano. Season with salt and pepper.
5
Cover the casserole and transfer to preheated oven. Bake 20 minutes.
6
To make the topping
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. With fingers or a pastry knife, rub in the butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in most of the cheese and the oregano.
7
Beat the egg with the milk and add enough to the dry mixture to form a soft dough. (reserve a little to brush on topping later) Knead lightly, and roll out to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut into 2-inch circles.
8
Remove dish from oven and increase oven temperature to 400°F.
9
Arrange the dough circles over top of the dish. Brush with remaining egg mixture and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Return to oven and bake 10-12 minutes, or until topping is golden brown.
