Vegetable Pot Pie with Parmesan Biscuit Crust

by simplylife on December 12, 2013

Have you ever looked at your Google Analytics?  Every once in a while, I love to learn a little bit more about who my readers are.  My favorite section to look at is the most viewed pages.

Most recently, Google Analytics has informed me that some of my most popular posts are Easy Pad Thai, Honey Whole Wheat Bread Bowls, Black Bean & Rice Stuffed Peppers and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip.


However, one of my all-time most viewed posts has been this Vegetable Pot Pie.  Since creating that one over two years ago, I’ve also added two additional pot pie recipes: Chickpea Pot Pie and Vegetable Pot Pie with Gouda Biscuit Topping.


I actually forgot about this heavenly comfort meal until I was looking at my Google Analytics the other day and was reminded at why this has become such a popular dish – it’s filled with tons of vegetables, is completely versatile, and is topped with just the right about of crust and cheese.  This is pretty similar to the same recipes I’ve posted about before, however I decided to use Parmesan Cheese instead.  Because the Biscuit Crust doesn’t requiring any resting or chilling, it’s definitely a meal that can be made on a weeknight and is the perfect way to warm-up on a chilly winter night!

Ingredients (4 servings)


    • 2 tbs. olive oil
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 1 potato, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
    • 1/3 cup chopped carrots
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
    • 1 tsp. dried thyme
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 tbs. all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup dry white wine
    • 1 1/2 cups milk
    • 1/3 cup frozen peas
    • 1/3 cup frozen corn


    • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbs. all purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
    • 6 tbs. yellow cornmeal

    • 3 tbs. chilled unsalted butter, diced

    • 1/2 cup coarsely shredded or shaved Parmesan cheese
    • Salt and pepper, to taste


    Begin with the filling. Heat olive oil in a large skilled over medium-high heat. Add onion and potato and cook about 3-5 minutes. Add carrots, salt, pepper and thyme and cook additional 1-2 minutes. Add in garlic and cook about 30 seconds.

    Sprinkle flour over vegetables and cook 1 minute. Add in the wine and cook until evaporated, about 3-5 minutes. Add the milk, lower the heat and simmer until it thickens, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in peas, corn, and season to taste. Set aside.

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine 2 types of flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and butter and mix with hands until mixture resembles coarse meal (you can also do this in a food processor and blend 5 seconds or in a stand mixer on high-speed with flat burnished beater attached). Add milk and mix/pulse until dough forms moist clumps. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and divide into 4 equal pieces (dough may be sticky; continue to minimally lightly flour surface) and shape into 2/3-inch disks size of serving bowl.

    Pour filling into oven-safe serving bowls. Top with biscuit crust and parmesan cheese. Bake on baking sheet about 25-30 minutes, until tops are golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve and enjoy!

      yummm, that Parmesan Biscuit Crust looks amazing! I use Google Analytics too….I’m always surprised by the number of visits on my blog. When you don’t get many comments, you tend to think no one is reading, so it’s a nice surprise 🙂

    • Liz @ Tip Top Shape

      I need to get myself individuals bowls like that to bake things in – too cute! This recipe looks amazing 🙂

    • decocinasytacones

      This looks GORGEOUS!!!!, I prefer this to a chocolate chip cookie really, lol.

    • Jolene (

      That looks like a perfect dish for the coooooold winter days we’ve been having.

    • Maris (In Good Taste)

      Would it be gross if I made this only to eat the Parmesan biscuit crust? 🙂

      • Simply Life

        that is COMPLETELY acceptable! 🙂

    • Amy (Savory Moments)

      I love pot pie and this one looks so delicious and comforting. I do look at the analytics and do find them interesting and sometimes surprising. For example, my most popular post of all time is a five bean salad. To me, that doesn’t seem super exciting (when compared to other dishes), but people love it.

    • Choc Chip Uru

      What a delicious pot pie, the parmesan crust makes it even more gourmet 😀


    • Daniela

      A perfect treat for cold days.
      Merry Christmas to you and your family!

      I love pot pies…they are such a comforting meal during the cold weather. I think your version sounds terrific.

    • Del Mar Dentist

      Wow! Looks yummy! I love Parmesan cheese so I will definitely try this. Is it okay to add more Parmesan cheese? Would it taste salty?
