Wild Mushroom Cobbler



Last night I made Wild Mushroom Cobbler. The recipe comes from The Vegetarian Epicure, which is a phenomenal cookbook. Basically, it is a mushroom ragout sort of base, which a buttermilk biscuit kind of topping. Mmm... My Mom used to make this for dinner for us when I was a kid, so I enjoy it quite a bit as it takes me back to the good ole days. It is kind of a pain in the ass to make (caramelizing onions for an hour, for example), but it is by no means a difficult recipe. I bought some assorted shrooms from the mushroom lady at the Farmer's Market this week, in anticipation of making this lovely meal. A salad accompanying it would have been lovely, but oh well, we had no lettuce in the house. Such is life.

Seriously, shrooms are the BEST. This cobbler was super tasty. I liked it much better in the pie pan this time. Heart!

I hate the taste of mushrooms. I dislike the consistency too. If they are minced, I can tolerate them. Now, patriotic wolf t-shirts are a different story! :)

Oh, I LOVE that cookbook. I don't remember seeing this recipe in it, I guess I'll have to look it up.
