This is a delicious recipe your kids can help with, and the whole family can enjoy. Get your children involved in the vegetable preparation. Older children can use a plastic knife to slice the mushrooms, while younger kids can use their fingers to break the mushroom caps apart.

Ingredients

  • For the Filling:
  • 1 cup cremini or white button mushrooms, stems removed
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 small stalk celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 small potato, such as Yukon Gold, peeeled and finely diced
  • 2 T all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth or bouillon
  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 cup diced, cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup frozen petit peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • For the Buttermilk Biscuit Topping:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 T cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup greated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat the oven to 400??F.

    With the help of an adult, use a plastic knife to slice the mushrooms, or use your fingers to simply break them into small pieces.

    Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and saut?? 2 minutes. Add the carrots and celery and cook 5 minutes longer. Stir in the potatoes and cook 5 minutes longer. Stir in the mushrooms and cook 3 minutes longer.

    Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir to dissolve. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Slowly stir the broth and milk into the vegetable mixture in the saucepan until a smooth sauce forms. Cook over low heat, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until the sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the chicken, peas, and corn. Pour the mixture into a 11/2-quart baking dish.

    Tip: To make individual pot pies, use 12-ounce ramekins or ovenproof bowls. Divide the filling evenly among the bowls, top each with a scoop of biscuit topping, and bake as directed, checking after 25 minutes.

    In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the butter pieces and use your fingers to mix the butter into the flour mixture until crumbly. With a spoon, stir in the Parmesan cheese, if using. Stir in the buttermilk and oil just until mixed.

    Use a big spoon to scoop up the biscuit dough and drop it on top of the vegetable filling, all around the edges of the baking dish.

    Place the baking dish on a baking sheet. Bake 30 minutes, or until biscuit topping is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Transfer to rack for 10 minutes to cool slightly before serving.
