“I had this at a friend's potluck dinner, and she gave me the recipe. It's definitely a comfort food on a cold winter night. The only downside is that it takes a while to prepare, but it's well worth the effort.”

Original recipe yields 4 to 6 servings



  1. Gently boil potatoes in a large pot of water for 20 minutes, or until tender. Drain, and return to the pot. Mash potatoes with 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 cup milk until fairly smooth. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups water with 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil. Stir in kasha. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups more water, and bring to a boil. Add bulgur, cover, and remove from heat. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  3. In a large saucepan, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, and carrots; saute until the onions soften. Add mushrooms; cook and stir for 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle flour over vegetables; stir constantly for 2 minutes, or until flour starts to brown. Pour remaining 1 1/2 cups milk over the vegetables, and increase heat to high. Stir with a whisk until sauce is smooth. Reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in corn, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and black pepper to taste.
  4. Mix together vegetable mixture and kasha mixture in a large bowl. Spoon into a buttered 10 inch pie pan, and smooth with a spatula. Spread mashed potatoes over top, leaving an uneven surface.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degree C) oven for 30 minutes. Garnish with the chopped parsley, and serve.

Loved the recipe, as did most of the guests.Had read in some reviews that it came out a little bland, so I added the garlic only when I blended the vegetables and the kasha/bulgur mix to keep a stronger flavour and I used dry mushroom soup mix instead of plain salt in step 3.Very nice!



This is great! Even my meat-loving husband loved it - and that's saying something. The only criticism is that it is a teensy bit bland - it could use some spice of some type or another. But this will definitely be going on our repeat list.



I enjoyed this alot!As new vegetarians i was looking for something to take the place of the turkey at Thanksgiving and this did the trick for us!
