  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the parsnips, carrots, and sweet potato into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir mushrooms and leeks until tender, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the flour, and stir until the mixture becomes paste-like and light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk the vegetable broth into the flour mixture. Stir in thyme, salt, pepper, and hot pepper sauce, then add the drained vegetables. Spoon vegetable mixture into a 10 inch deep dish pie pan.
  4. To prepare biscuit topping, combine biscuit mix with milk in a bowl. Drop heaping tablespoons of batter onto vegetable filling. Do not cover filling completely with batter. Bake pot pie in the preheated over until topping is golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.

Made this with a few modifications. I used two parsnips (one big, one small), three skinny carrots and one huge sweet potato. I sliced and cubed them to relatively the same size and let boil for 15 minutes to be sure they were cooked through. I downsized the mushrooms to about a cup (fiancĂ© isn't a big fan of the 'shrooms) and used "mignon" leeks (pre-packaged leeks that are already trimmed down to the white) which I thinly sliced. SautĂ©ed in butter-flavoured margarine; added the flour and cooked until almost brown (I was afraid it would burn if I let it get brown) and poured in a cup of water/a tablespoon of chicken soup base as well as half a cup of white wine/a tablespoon of chicken soup base. Whisked it all in and let it thicken. Tossed in the other vegetables and coated them in the sauce. I used a 9-inch deep dish pie pan (it's the only pie pan I own). I used a little less baking mix simply because my pan was smaller than the one used by the recipe submitter. I did not scoop the mixture over the vegetables; I instead poured it all over the top and spread it as thin as possible leaving a few spots uncovered to let the steam seep out of the pie. I like that this savoury pie is almost crust-less, with just a light biscuit-like topping (saving on calories!). I thought making little “blind spots” to let the steam seep out of the pie would work, however it didn’t as there is some leakage. Oh well, that’s my mistake and gives me a reason to clean the oven, lol!


I had my eye on another, more complicated veggie pot pie recipe, but I'm so glad I went with this one! I used a few different vegetables and added some green beans for color, but you could do any vegetable combination and this would work. The parsnips, however, add a really nice flavor to the mix. I have an abundance of parsley, so I used that instead of thyme, adding it to the roux as well as the biscuit mix. Since I'm stubborn and try to make everything from scratch, I just used a standard drop biscuit dough, using half whole wheat, half all purpose flour. No matter what changes or substitutions you make, this is a comfort food recipe to follow.


I followed this recipe exactly and though this smelled good, it didn't taste very good. It was just ok. It created a lot of dirty dishes (pot, skillet, pie dish, bowl, cutting board, knife etc (which I don't appreciate) and I feel it wasn't worth the work.
